The Best HEB Meal Simple Meals - According to HEB Fans

There are so many HEB Meal Simple options, that there are still many I personally haven't tried. So I took it to my Instagram Stories to see what your favorite Meal Simple meals are, and here's what y'all said.

Not sure what HEB Meal Simple Meals are? Check out this blog post first - Your HEB Meal Simple Questions Answered

The Best HEB Meal Simple Meals

Meal Simple Chicken Parmesan

The chicken parmesan was by far the most liked meal I was messaged about on my Instagram Q. It's parmesan breaded and comes with penne pasta in marinara sauce. I like my chicken parm to have a little more breading, but this is definitely a healthier option and the pasta is great.

Meal Simple Seafood-Stuffed Salmon

HEB offers a variety of seafood-stuffed salmon options. Crab stuffed, crawfish stuffed, spinach and parmesan stuffed, and all of these are fan favorites.

Meal Simple Beef Flank Steak Pinwheels

These pinwheels are usually stuffed with feta and spinach or parmesan and spinach, both are delicious. It's one of the few Meal Simple options with two entrees, so we like to grab it and do a couple of sides, like potatoes and asparagus.

Meal Simple Meatloaf

The HEB Meal Simple Meatloaf is topped with homestyle tomato sauce and comes with mashed potatoes and either broccoli or green beans. It has many fans to be sure.

Meal Simple Lemon Pepper Chicken

There are a lot of chicken options that didn't make the list, but the lemon pepper stands out as a go-to pick for many of my followers. HEB also has a lemon pepper rotisserie chicken.

Meal Simple Bacon Alfredo Chicken with Spaghetti Squash

This Meal Simple dish has chicken in bacon alfredo sauce (yes, you read that right), with garlic parmesan spaghetti squash on the side. A winning combo if I ever saw one.

Meal Simple Enchiladas

The enchiladas have many fans but no clear consensus on a filling. Everyone had a different favorite, from the brisket enchiladas to plain cheese. I do believe we have overcooked these in my house before, so watch your cook time if your oven tends to burn hot.

Meal Simple Chicken Poblano Pasta

This poblano chicken pasta has fettuccine pasta, chopped chicken thighs, and roasted sweet corn, all in a poblano sauce. So tasty!

Most Other Meal Simple Salmon Options

At this point, they have garlic pesto salmon, teriyaki salmon, honey garlic salmon... it just seems like you can have almost anything you want, and a lot of these are good. One mentioned quite a bit as a fave is the margarita salmon with Mexican street corn.

Meal Simple Apricot Cranberry Pork - Available Every Fall

Every Fall for the last several years, HEB has debuted several fall-themed dishes, including this Apricot Cranberry Pork meal. It comes as a pinwheel or a roll you can cut into several pinwheels, and it's DELICIOUS. It also has pecans, so if you have a nut allergy, steer clear.

The Best HEB Meal Simple Sides & Apps

Meal Simple Brisket Queso

I would be remiss if I left out the best Meal Simple of all time. The Tex Mex Brisket Queso has got to be HEB's best seller in the section. If you can't find it with the other Meal Simples, check the meat department.

Meal Simple Coconut Shrimp

The Meal Simple coconut shrimp side dish has many, many fans. As one person put it, "Let me tell you how well the coconut shrimp heats up 🙊. It only needs 7 min or so."

Meal Simple Parmesan Crusted Green Beans

The perfect side dish - these fresh green beans are crusted with parmesan cheese and zesty seasonings. They crisp up to a satisfying crunch.

The Best HEB Meal Simple Desserts:

Meal Simple Cherry White Chocolate Cookie Cobbler

I continuously rave about this cherry cobbler with white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. It's the perfect combo. The cherry base is tart, the cookies are sweet, it works well together.

Meal Simple Sopapilla Cheesecake

The best dish of all isn’t mentioned in here. Not that it matters because they discontinued it a couple weeks ago. I’m seriously suffering from withdrawals and I can’t find any recipes that even come close. This is so unfair. The vegetarian shepherds pie was the best dish I ever had in my 48 years of living on this planet. This is so unfair.
