FAQS

Holy calories! Is that a typo?
Nope, it's true—540 cals per serving and a whopping 1,070 cals in an entire double serving. If you're embarking on a long-distance hike, or just burning a ton of calories, look no further. This is our highest calorie entrée.

Is this meal spicy?
Not so much hot, as it is flavorful. Poblano, black pepper and cumin come together to create big, bold flavors with a balanced spice. If spicy-hot just isn't your thing, have no fear! This is a mild dish.

Black Beans

Black Beans

Protein rich and loaded with fiber and antioxidants, black beans are highly popular ingredient in Latin American cuisine. They have a rich, slightly sweet and nutty flavor that pairs perfectly with rice—finished off with our own garlic cream sauce.
Long Grain White Rice

Long Grain White Rice

Mild in flavor, with less starch than shorter varieties, its the perfect foundation for our Cuban Rice Bowl. White rice is known to help stabilize blood-sugar levels, and is high in protein and carbs, and is considered easy to digest.
Plaintain

Plaintain

This starchier, less-sweet cousin to the banana is high in vitamin C, fiber and minerals. They have a rich, buttery flavor perfect for use in savory foods and are a staple in Cuban cuisine.

Tasty Cuban Rice Bowl

I really like this meal. It's got just the right amount of spice; not to hot, not to mild. Delicious and healthy. I would buy it again.

A nee experience

Wonderful!! After a number of years of relying on my old Good-To-Go standbys (Pad Thai, Thai Curry, Mushroom Risotto, and Kale and Bean Stew), I tried thus one and was blown away by its interesting new tastes with a lime highlight.
