The story of Oso Meals began in the mountains of Michoacan, Mexico and continues here in the Rockies of Colorado. Deep into a week-long backpacking trip, friends Dom Barrera and Felipe Vieyra were sharing stories about their abuelita’s home cooking. We remembered fresh huevos migos in the morning and platters of spicy enchiladas for the family.
Dom was from Colorado and Felipe was from Michoacan, but we grew up enjoying the same flavorful meals. That night over a bland dinner of flavorless dehydrated beef stew, the idea for Oso Meals was born. Along with Connor Lawrence and Marcos Vieyra, we are creating a new type of adventure meal, meals based on a love for food that is rich in taste and culture.
Oso’s soul is sharing delicious meals while you’re off the beaten path and far from home. It’s about creating access to flavors and recipes steeped in tradition. We have fond memories of these recipes and are excited that foodies, adventurers, and all fans of good tasting food will soon be able to share and enjoy the authenticity of Oso Meals.
