MRE- Meal Ready to Eat
1 package MRE, any flavor they all taste the same
1 bottle hot pepper sauce
Salt and pepper

Bring small pot of water to boil, remove from heat.  Place MRE package in
pot, cover and let sit for several minutes.  Remove MRE from
water, tear of top, add significant amount of hot pepper sauce and salt
and pepper to taste.  Mix well, eat.

This type of meal has been a not so favorite of my backpacking buddies for
several years.  These meals were given to us, so we used
them until they were gone.  Actually, they don't taste to bad, a little
hot sauce and some salt and pepper.  They will certainly fill your belly.
Just make sure you have plenty of striking paper in the pack.  The only be
drawback is the foil package and they are kind of heavy to carry.
