My First HelloFresh Box for 2022

I skipped the first two weeks of the year and didn't order HelloFresh.

I was planning to order a HelloFresh box last week, but we had to do our twice a year Costco run, which means my small fridge can't fit all the frozen items from Costco and a HelloFresh box.

My five HelloFresh meals.

I am looking forward to relatively healthy eating from my HelloFresh box this week.

Carb Smart Chipotle Beef Chili with Poblano Peppers and Cheddar Cheese

We also ordered this dish last year, primarily because it's only 580 calories which I split into two, so each meal is only 290 calories! I added all the chipotle spice, and there's heat on the chilli - I love it!

Carb Smart Chipotle Beef Chilli with Poblano Peppers and Cheddar Cheese

HelloFresh Description: This nourishing low-carb chilli replaces beans with lots of wholesome veggies! We added extra deliciousness with spicy chipotle and melty cheddar cheese! Carb Smart is based on a per-serving calculation of the recipe's carbohydrate amount.

Thai-Style Sweet Chili Chicken with Cilantro Lime Rice

I am uncertain what makes this Thai-style, because when I think of Thai cuisine I think of heat and peanut sauce. I enjoyed the zucchini though.

HelloFresh Description: Chicken pieces are coated in a tangy sweet chilli sauce, then coupled with zucchini and burst tomatoes. The cilantro-lime rice infuses every bite with brightness.

Smoky Falafel Bowls with Tahini Drizzle

I only ordered one Falafel dish last year, and they completely forgot to pack the falafel. Fortunately, they remembered it this time. I love the tahini and I wish there's more Falafel.

HelloFresh Description: Hearty falafels are perked up with a spicy, garlicky tahini drizzle in this delicious and nutritious rice bowl.

Mexican-Style Red Bean Stew with Cheesy Quesadillas

I like the heat from the stew and the quesadillas is truly perfect for dipping.

Mexican-Style Red Bean Stew with Cheesy Quesadillas

HelloFresh Description: This Mexican-style stew is veggie- and flavour-packed! The cheesy quesadillas are easy to make, melt-in-your-mouth delicious and made even better by dipping into the stew - a perfect dinner for any night of the week.

Kale and Black Bean Quesadillas with Fresh Tomato Salsa and Crema

I ordered the same dish last year and absolutely loved it. However, somehow it felt lacking this year. Maybe I didn't add enough salt. The tortilla they sent seems lower quality and much smaller too so the filling is spilling all over the pan.

Kale and Black Bean Quesadillas with Fresh Tomato Salsa and Crema

HelloFresh Description: Forget all meaty Tex-Mex quesadillas of the past! This veggie beauty is jam-packed with hearty kale and filling beans. The secret to this memorable Tex-Mex feast is the refreshing salsa with tomatoes, cilantro, and lime. Simple, yet so satisfying!

I am skipping HelloFresh next week, because we're going to Real Canadian Superstore and plans to buy things in bulk and our small fridge can only fit so many food.
