Food Review: Amy's Cheddar Cheese Burrito

Food Review: Amy's Cheddar Cheese Burrito

If you don't know by now, I'm a huge fan of foods from Amy's Kitchen. I love her Vegetable Lasagna and Stuffed Pasta Shells, and her canned Vegetable Barley Soup is really tasty and filling.

Sugar users juju and james bond girl suggested I try Amy's burritos. You can find them in the freezer section of most health food stores. They weren't too expensive — about $3 or 4 each — and they have a few varieties such as Bean & Cheese (I tried this one), Bean & Rice, Black Bean Vegetable, Breakfast (with tofu and potatoes), Indian Spinach Tofu Wrap, and Southwestern (with jalapeño peppers and black olives).

Want to know what I thought of Amy's Bean & Cheese Burrito? Then

Serving Size 1 burrito
Calories 300
Total Fat 9g
Saturated Fat 2.5g
Cholesterol 10mg
Sodium 580mg
Carbs 43g
Fiber 6g
Sugar 1g
Protein 11g

This burrito was the perfect size, and it was very tasty - not very spicy, with just enough seasoning. The pinto beans and cheese were mixed to create a soft and creamy consistency. When I looked inside, I could still see whole pinto beans, which is always a good thing.

The whole wheat flour tortilla was wrapped tightly enough and never once unraveled, so I didn't have to worry about it becoming a huge explosive mess as burritos often tend to be. I also liked that after taking this burrito out of the freezer, it only took 2 1/2 minutes in the microwave to warm up.

Amy's burritos definitely get a thumbs up from me. With 11g of protein and 6g of fiber, they're a great option when you need a quick meal.

Amy's foods are a staple in my diet. I love the vegan pizza and vegan burritos! I also love the vegan soups! MMMMM.

I adore Amy's individual Margherita pizza. Mmm...I just love the flavor of the crust which some brands overlook. And I love the vegan no cheese pizza. And the burritos, and pesto tortellini. Goodness, now I'm hungry. Anyone try the breakfast burritos? I'm curious. I wish there were Amy's coupons out there, because these are definitely more pricey than other brands.

amy's feta and spinach pockets are delicious as well - really fills the craving for a spinach calzone, without all the calories! (and this is coming from a non-vegetarian - i love amy's food!)

If you write to them on their website you will get a TON of coupons in the mail for free and discounted Amy's dinners and canned goods. I wrote them to thank them for being health and environmentally conscious and they wrote back asking me for my address so they could send me some goodies.

I love her vegetable barley soup, too! And, her enchiladas. And my son loves her soy cheeze frozen pizzas.

I have to try these. I love love love Amy's Kitchen. I was sick a few weeks ago and finding a tasty vegetarian soup isn't always easy. I then saw the Amy's kitchen soups and was so excited! I had both the Vegetable Barly and the No-Chicken Soup, both delicious. The No-Chicken soup really brought me back to my days as a kid when mom used to make me soup when I was sick. It was really comforting. :)

i eat the breakfast or bean and rice kind pretty frequently because the food at my college's dining hall is nasty. with a side of vegetables or a piece of fruit, this burrito becomes a really healthy meal, and is really filling. its probably one of the best frozen meals i've tried. i would recommend one of these for anyone looking for a fast, simple, and satisfying meal.
