Today, we bid a fond farewell to Mama Pat’s Foods as the Meet The Manufacturer will be ending. Chef Ron informed me though that there will be cups and new flavors coming, so we’ll just say until next time. So chicken fajitas – here’ Wikipedia on the fajita:
A fajita (/fəˈhiːtə/; Spanish: [faˈxita] ( listen)) is a term found in Tex-Mex cuisine, commonly referring to any grilled meat usually served as a taco on a flour or corn tortilla. The term originally refers to the cut of beef in the dish which is skirt steak. Popular meats today also include chicken, pork, shrimp, lamb and all cuts of beef, as well as vegetables instead of meat. In restaurants, the meat is usually cooked with onions and bell peppers. Popular condiments are shredded lettuce, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, pico de gallo, cheese, and tomato. The northern Mexican variant of the dish name is Arrachera.
Alright – so let’s check out the last of the Mama Pat’s – the chicken fajita variety!
Mama Pat’s Chicken Fajita Flavor Instant Ramen Noodles – United States
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Looks to be meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, add noodle block to 2 cups of boiling water and cook for 3 minutes. Take off heat and add sachet contents and let sit for 1 minute. Stir and enjoy! To make the fruit drink: add sachet contents to 8 ounces water (I’m going with cold water). Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
The soup base sachet.
A light powder.
The vegetables sachet.

The included drink mix sachet.
The drink (click to enlarge)! Definitely lemonade. Has a decent tart and sweet kind of taste to it.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added red bell pepper, baked chicken, cilantro and shredded colby jack cheese. As with the other varieties, the noodles came up nicely with a good texture and soft chew. The broth was interesting; it had a nice tanginess to it I really didn’t expect and was very good. It was a lightly spicy kind of tangy chicken. The vegetables did very well hydrating and it all comes together well! 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 728028430950.
