A few day ago I talked about a meal delivery program called, Home Chef. At that point I hadn't tried the service, but this week we had a box delivered and I'm so excited to share our meals and experience with you!
Home Chef delivers everything you need to prepare a home cooked meal. The meat, produce, spices, and sauces are all sent in perfect portions so there's nothing to go bad or to waste. The only thing you may have to provide is salt, pepper and oil and then your time for prepping and cooking which is usually around 30 minutes from start to finish.
Also included are full instructions as well as colored pictures so you'll know exactly how to meal prep and cook the food. The face sheet tells you the meal calories, nutrition information, prep and cook time, spice level and they even rate the difficulty these were both rated 'easy'.
The first meal we tried was the Al Pastor Pork Tacos with pineapples and chipotle pepper and the second was Fiesta Chicken with fresh salsa, roasted chayote squash and queso fresco.
I'm not a chef by any means so I was hoping these meals were as 'easy' as the fact sheet labeled them. There were a few ingredients like the chayote squash that I've never heard of or worked with so I was a little nervous.
I followed the directions for prepping the ingredients like mincing the garlic, taking the seeds out of the squash and jalapeno, chopping the pepita etc and it was all pretty simple even for someone who doesn't normally cook so fancy!
I was happy the meals only took about a half hour to prep and cook and the end result was delicious. I love trying new things so I was very excited about these meals. My husband is pretty picky, but he tried everything and loved the tacos and chicken. He tried the squash and although he didn't love it, he at least tried it and said it was just okay. I loved it all. There wasn't one thing I didn't like and the fresh salsa for the chicken was amazing and so easy to make that I can now make it again on my own!
I love the convenience of Home Chef. It saved me so much time this week. Having fresh ingredients delivered right to my doorstep along with recipes and instructions was awesome! I also loved how easy it was to order. You go to the website, choose which meals you'd like for the week and which day you want them delivered and boom it's there within a few days. Home Chef is definitely something I will use more often.
I'm so excited that you can try it too! Use promo code FAMILY at checkout on the Home Chef website and receive $30 off your order!
