I don't eat a lot of frozen, processed meals, but I will admit, there are times when they are needed to simplify life. I have long been a fan of a few of Amy's products...especially the tomato bisque soup they make...but this was the first time I saw a "lightened up" product line from them. I was anxious to give it a try.
They make several entrees in this line, and I had a hard time deciding which one to try. I settled on the Soft Taco Fiesta. I reheated it in the microwave, according to the manufacturers directions.
What came out was not that far off from what was pictured on the front of the box. I mean, of course the box picture looked a bit better than my actual meal...but one should never judge a book by the cover, right?
The description of this meal as stated on the box is as follows: "This unique bowl, while lower in fat and calories than our other Mexican dishes, is just as tasty. We've placed a soft corn tortilla between a layer of brown rice, shredded vegetables and sweet corn and a layer of black beans and cheese. We cover it all with a blend of our tomatillo and ranchero sauces to make this flavorful, but not too spicy, 220 calorie meal."
I couldn't tell where the cheese was, but I will take their word it's in there....
Overall, this was a tasty lunch. I like the tomatillo and ranchero sauce combo and once you dig in, you find the corn tortilla and under that, some flavorful rice. I did bulk this meal up with some steamed broccoli on the side, as I do most frozen meals. I don't think eaten alone, it would be all that satisfying, but for 6 points+ it was definitely worth it. With the broccoli on the side and an orange to finish, the entire meal clocked in at 6 points+.
I will say, this meal was a bit on the high side price wise...but maybe that is just my store. I will be buying this again...but not that often because of the price.

I will be looking to try the other varieties in this line of products from Amy's to try in the future.
