Review: Evol Gluten-Free Burritos

There is something to be said about convenience.  Yes, it is true, many convenience foods are full of ingredients we can’t pronounce, but Evol Foods prides themselves on making convenience foods with REAL ingredients that you would find in your own kitchen pantry or refrigerator.  I have been very impressed with the quality and taste of Evol Bowls over the past couple of years, so I was thrilled to learn they now make gluten-free burritos.

There is also a 3rd gluten-free burrito, a Gluten-Free Chicken Burrito, that includes a guacamole packet.  All 3 varieties are dairy-free in addition to being gluten-free.  Each burrito contains between 220-230 calories and 10-11 grams of fiber.  The burritos are very easy to prepare by simply wrapping a wet paper towel around the burrito and microwaving for 2 minutes.  I found that we needed to add another 15-20 seconds to that time to heat through the middle.

This is a photo of the beef burrito after it was cooked.  The burrito held up well and the reason for the small crack is due to me trying to make sure it was warm in the middle without cutting it open.  Jon wanted to be able to pick the burrito up to hold it in his hand as opposed to using a fork.  I am happy to report that not only was he able to hold the burrito the way he wanted to, but he loved it!  As a matter of fact, he loved them both!

Evol gluten-free products can be found in many stores across the US in the natural freezer section or online.  We received these products free of charge for review purposes, but as always, the thoughts and opinions shared here are our own.  Have you seen or tried the new Evol Gluten-Free Burritos?

    I love burritos! Thank you for this information. I would have never imagined that a somewhat healthy product could also be “convenient”.
