            fajita was my favorite, but chicken noodle was REALLY good because it was one of those meals that tasted good without having to heat it up, so if you had to eat on the go and didn't have the chance to heat it up, you could eat it by itself without mixing ingredients either. but chili with beans is the coveted MRE that everyone wants.

                      Believe it or not, in a combat situation the taste of the food you eat is extremely important for morale and mental well-being

                            I enjoy civvies trying to stumble through an MRE. I say "civvies" not because I served, because I didn't. However I've personally eaten 48 MRE. I dont know why but I love them. Some are bad...enchilada...but most are great chili mac.
