I’ve been trying tons of new food products lately, and I’m so excited to share a few new ones with you. I was sent a couple of these products free of charge, but as always, I only give you my true and honest opinion! So let’s get rolling. Here are some of the best frozen burritos I’ve tried:
First up, Red’s All Natural Burritos. It took me a little while to locate the veggie ones (although most stores around here carried the chicken and beef varieties) but I’m so glad I found them! First of all, I was surprised at how heavy they were! They’re definitely packed with fillings. And then I flipped over the label and was pleasantly surprised at the ingredients list. I could actually pronounce everything which is a huge plus, especially for a packaged frozen product!
It is a little high in calories, clocking in at 500 calories even, but it does pack in 15g of protein, and a good amount of fiber. The burrito is filled with beans and rice, so it definitely has staying power. I popped it in the microwave at work for a few minutes, and I couldn’t wait to dig in. This burrito was delicious, although a bit messy. I’m glad to have a few left in my freezer to pack for an emergency lunch. Even better, it kept me totally full until dinner! If you see these in your freezer aisle, give them a try.
I’m also a huge fan of these burritos from Amy’s. I originally tried these burritos when we went sugar free and I needed some easy lunch options.
They’re on the small side but if you add a few veggies + a bit hummus and you’ve got a nice, healthy lunch!
Now if you’re not into frozen foods, (or you’re gluten free) check out these rice tortillas! Food For Life sent me some of these to try out, and since I’d been testing out the differences between flour and corn tortillas, I definitely wanted to give rice tortillas a shot! Last night, Alex and I were making grilled cheese, with some leftovers we had on hand, and I decided to make some tortilla chips. Tortilla chips are one of my favorite foods, but making them yourself is a good way to maintain portion control! I sliced up 2 tortillas, sprayed them with a bit of olive oil and salt, and baked at 350 for about 10-15 minutes, until they were crispy.
My thoughts? These would be a great option if you’re gluten free, and you’re tired of corn tortillas. They’re a little heavier and more filling. Generally I like to keep the focus on the contents of the burrito, but they’re a little more hearty than that. Calorie wise, they’re around the same as a flour tortilla (170 for a big wrap) and they really have a good texture, especially for being gluten free. Oh, and I learned that black rice has the same kinds of antioxidants found in blueberries and blackberries! How cool is that? So go get a pack. I’d definitely keep these in my fridge for the next taco night!
