Here’s another one sent by Colin, a reader who recently visited Mexico – thanks! Okay so with all the flames on this one, the picture of the habanero and the packet, I’m getting this might be a little spicy. Let’s find out.
Detail of the side panel (click to enlarge). Contains chicken. To prepare, add boiling water to fill line and cover for 3 minutes. Stir. Add sachet contents and enjoy!

Looks like the USA version except in Spanish. Reads ‘much more than a soup.’
The seasoning infused noodle block.
A couple of the vegetable bits from the cup.
Oh, this could get violent (click to enlarge)! El Yucateco is one of the spiciest hot sauces I’ve come in contact with, especially the habanero!
Finished (click to enlarge). Added baked chicken and cilantro. The noodles are your standard North American fare – round in gauge and with a very light chew. The broth was a hint of spicy – not a barn burner here. The vegetables hydrated very nicely. The packet of El Yucateco – now that’s worth a fuss! Extremely spicy stuff – and not USA habanero spicy, Mexican habanero spicy which is very direct and to the point. It’s hot, has a bite and really ups this cup quite a bit. 3.5 out of 5.0 stars.

A really great Nissin Mexico film – in Spanish.
