Amy’s Light & Lean Soft Taco Fiesta Review

Amy's Light & Lean Soft Taco Fiesta

When it comes to Amy’s Light & Lean Soft Taco Fiesta bowl, we have to admit that the staffers here at Freezer Meal Frenzy have been dragging our feet. We noticed this dish quite a while ago, but we held off on reviewing it for as long as we could. This is partially based on past experiences — we’ve had some poor Light & Lean meals in the past — but our fears mostly came from the picture on the front of the box. If the box art doesn’t look appetizing to us, what would the real meal look like?

But today we finally face our fears and dive into the Amy’s Kitchen Light & Lean Soft Taco Fiesta.

We didn’t feel any better about this when we took it out of the microwave. As you can see in the image below, not everything cooked evenly, so there were sections that were incredibly dry. Thankfully, we were able to resolve this problem with a good stirring. Once we did that, we were left with a perfectly edible meal.

This dish may not have been the monstrosity we expected it to be, but that doesn’t mean it’s amazing. We can’t say we enjoy this meal, and we can’t say that it disgusts us either. Nothing jumps out as bad, but there’s nothing that makes it feel special. Most of the ingredients are on the bland side, and, unlike most Amy’s meals, the ingredients don’t taste very fresh.

The one thing that does stand out is the salt content. The meal contains 560 grams of sodium, and you can definitely taste it. It’s extremely salty, especially when compared to other meals in the Light & Lean line. We’re not usually ones to complain about seasoning, but the saltiness definitely detracted from the flavors here. We couldn’t really taste the cheese or the tomatillos; the only flavor that stood out was salt.

We normally enjoy Amy’s Mexican food, but Amy’s Light & Lean Soft Taco Fiesta isn’t something we plan on eating again. It’s neither tasty nor healthy enough to recommend. If you’re interested in the Light & Lean line, we’d suggest checking out Amy’s Light & Lean Spaghetti Italiano or Amy’s Light & Lean Black Bean & Cheese Enchilada. But when it comes to the Soft Taco Fiesta, there’s simply no reason to keep a meal like this in your freezer.
