Cooking is fun. It can also be a challenge. Does this challenge sway us to order take-out instead? Heck no. Maybe you’re like us and you enjoy a good challenge. Just like a sudoku puzzle, the satisfaction is in the hurdles and tackles. And the end results, like when your kitchen smells like heaven and the fork meets your mouth, makes it all worth it.
From the Meal Kit to the Table, a Challenge is Worth it
Cooking is a skill and like most skills, it can be learned. Do you think Mozart just stumbled to a piano one day and immediately began to compose symphonies? Were Shakespeare’s first words in iambic pentameter? Nope. It all takes time, practice, and patience.
We make the challenge a little easier by providing you with the fresh ingredient so you don’t have to hunt for them at the store, and step-by-step directions from start to finish.
Are you ready for this challenge? We believe in you.
You can consider this Chilaquiles Verdes with Chipotle Chicken meal kit like the cooler older brother to nachos, not in temperature, but in status and rank.
Chilaquiles are tortilla chips that have been simmered in spicy sauce. But, wait—it gets even better—there’s a fried egg on top. In this meal kit, zesty salsa verde, pickled shallots, chipotle sauce, and pulled chicken thigh, sit pretty on top of a warm bed of tortilla chips. This is gourmet-level comfort food.
Insider Tip: When you want to use cheese as a topping, opt to use cotija cheese. It’s crumbly and delicious, and it originated in Michoacán, Mexico.

The sweet and meaty lobster tails soak up the melted, herb butter. The filet mignon melts in your mouth. The forest-green spinach is sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and then broiled to form a golden crust, while it sits soaking in truffle butter. And the dashi glazed mushrooms are complex in their umami flavor. It’s elevated, decadent, and juicy to the bite.
Insider Tip: After you poach the lobster in the delicious lemon herb butter, you can save the butter and refrigerate it for the next day. Cook your next meal with this butter to add an extra boost of flavor! It’s delicious recycling.
