Ingredients


This is a review of a food subscription box called Hello Fresh. This is our 8th delivery and this was a delicious one. We absolutely loved the Chicken Fajitas and the Pork & Chinese Eggplant Stir Fry was a close second. 

Chicken Fajitas with Homemade Guacamole & Pico de Gallo

Wow was this delicious, we both gave it five out of five stars! Hubby did an excellent job of cooking this one and he added some additional spices since we like our food extra spicy. He added about a 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper & cumin and a 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Hello Fresh only provided chili powder which wasn't enough spice for our liking. We would have liked an additional two tortillas, since we couldn't fit all the filling in just four tortillas. This was a very generous portion and we had happy, full bellies afterwards. Just thinking about this recipe is making me hungry! Awesome creation! This dish had 812 calories and took about 40 minutes to prepare.

Pork & Chinese Eggplant Stir Fry with Garlic Soy Sauce & Brown Rice

Another yummy dish! This was perfect for me since Chinese take out is usually too greasy for my stomach. This was such a lovely, healthy version that was so enjoyable. Just goes to show you don't need a thick sugary sauce to enjoy Chinese dishes! We gave this four out or five stars because we thought it needed more pork. But it would have been five stars if they had provided just a bit more. We didn't miss the white rice at all, the brown rice was just as yummy.  This dish had 770 calories and took about 35 minutes to cook.

Seared Steak & Charred Nectarine Salad with Feta, Pecans & Basil

This one we gave three out of five stars. We didn't care for the vinaigrette. It was very filling and I shared several pieces of the steak with our dogs. The nectarines made for a nice change. It was a good dish, just not our favorite for the week. This dish had 659 calories and took about 30 minutes to prepare.
