Q: What are the ACTUAL ingredients? The 'Label Info' tab lists broccoli and nothing of what you can see in the picture. Also would be nice if one of the three identical pictures was a picture of the back

I love the southwest as a meal. Sometimes I add a teaspoon of sour cream and some fresh cilantro and white onion. And a splash of Cholula!

I used to buy the Southwest one frequently and loved it. Recently after not having it for awhile I bought a package. It was flavorless and filled with rice or quinoa or both—I like these ingredients but not as the main ingredient. It’s a bunch of filler. Where did the black beans go—what happened to the southwest flavor? I purposely did a search to see if others had the same experience. Yes, I’m not the only one. Gosh Bird Eye, change it back! You’re losing a boatload of customers and your customers have lost a great product.

Used to be good. My package had some sort of gritty substance in it (almost like sand). I have eaten this many times before and never had this problem. Yuck. I'm totally turned off and probably will never eat this again.

I used to really enjoy this Power Blend - I read other reviews and picked up a couple in spite of comments about there being a "change". But I must agree - this is not the product it used to be. What happened to all that delicious flavor?

I liked it better when it had lentils, and lots of black beans, and the lentils zucchini orzo in it. It had more protein and fiber. Now the rice is just filler. Even the product description and smartlabel for the ingredients has the old recipe listed.

I understand that some ingredients change and such, but where's the lentils, the zucchini, brown rice? This new recipes is just not it. It took out so much of the nutritional value for our diabetic taco friendly night. Chase the dollar and ensure your clients just got to make it from scratch for themselves. I won't be going back for seconds this round, I can make it better myself and ensure my family is healthier than eating this. Now I'm side eyeing all my birds eye selections with a sharper eye. Sadly, I'm sure I'll find many many more than won't make the cut any longer. Another one bites the dust.

I’ve been eating this every day for the past week or so and I think it’s a great base. I add in either two veggie Buffalo “chicken” patties or two spicy black bean patties. I cut the patties up and add a little Tajin and a serving of sour cream and it is perfect. Delicious, very filling, and overall a great meal that is not super high in calories!

This one is the worst of all the blends. It tastes like a leftover potluck dish. Adding sauce/spices doesn’t help it either

I microwaved 2 packs just to be sure. It was riddled with little worm looking things. I read some reviews that said it might be quinoa, but I just couldn’t do it. Shew!

Can you mess up a product more than you have? I don't think you can. In your quest and greed to make more money you get alllll the credit for changing your product from GREAT, to now it is expensive squishy, pasty, rice. I hope you go broke for trying to pass this off as food.

Did not even eat it

Years ago I ate this every day due to it's nutritional value and it tastes great. The other day I saw it at the store and grabbed a bag as a side for taco night. I'll admit I do not actively eat quinoa so I guess I didn't know this but when cooked it can give an appearance similar to worms.... When I opened the bag after cooking I noticed the bag littered with "worm" looking things I lost my appetite and immediately threw the bag in the garbage. After emailing the company I was told this was what quinoa looks like when cooked. Yikes. I won't be eating quinoa or this product anymore. Maybe it tastes fine which is why I gave it two stars.

Wow these reviews are harsh. I wouldn’t eat this plain but with a little cheese, fresh onion and tomatoes, plus some salsa and sour cream. I felt like I was eating a healthier burrito bowl.
