An outdoor "adventure food" manufacturer has partnered with the Arizona Trail Association to designate the 800-mile trail's official backcountry meal.

Sasquatch Fuel says in a news release that the Kickin' Cactus Bowl is a classic Southwestern meal that makes an ideal fit for Arizona's flagship hiking trail. Among the ingredients is prickly pear cactus pads, a common sight along the trail.

Other flavors in the meal come from white rice, sweet corn, bell peppers, onions and spices. The meal provides 409 calories and 13 grams of protein, Sasquatch Fuel says, and requires just 9 ounces of boiling water and 10 minutes of preparation time.

Additionally, the packaging breaks down wherever microbes are present, making it compostable or burnable (in areas where fires are permitted), the company says.

"We are excited to partner with a company that is this devoted to conservation,” says Anna Perreira, development director of the Arizona Trail Association, in the news release. “I’m impressed with the flavors of the meal, but even more so with the ethics of the company. Sasquatch Fuel is solving a major issue faced by so many manufacturers today — waste. Their unique packaging delivers a quality product while eliminating waste.”
