EVOL Shredded Beef Burrito

EVOL Veggie Fajita Burrito knocked my socks off, so naturally I wanted to try more varities. Unfortunately, my grocery store only offers up two varieties of Evol's lovely creations, so the only way to mix things up was to test out the EVOL Shredded Beef Burrito.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 burrito (8 ounces)
Calories: 470
Total Fat: 11 grams, 17%
Saturated Fat: 3.5 grams, 18%
Sodium: 640 mg, 27%
Carbohydrates: 72 gram
Fiber: 6 grams, 24%
Sugar: 2 grams
Protein: 20 grams

I'm not exactly a huge beef eater, but this burrito was packed full with shredded and wonderfully tender beef. But shredded beef isn't the only thing that goes into this flavorful filling - you will also see (and taste) tender pinto beans, al dente rice, stringy monetary jack and cheddar cheese and crunchy roasted corn. These components are nestled within a tender and doughy tortilla. The tortilla is soft, for the most part, but it did have some hard portions on the ends where the tortilla had been folded (per usual with microwavable frozen burritos). I served mine up with a knife and fork and some crunchy, steamed broccoli, however, it is a very sturdy creation that would be great to take on the go.

Each all natural, hand-rolled, protein-packed EVOL Shredded Beef Burrito provides 470 calories, 11 grams of total fat & 3.5 grams of saturated fat (17% & 18% of the daily value), 27% of the DV for sodium, 6 grams of fiber (24% of the DV), 2 grams of sugar and 20 grams of protein.

The calorie count is a bit high for a burrito, but it is also a VERY filling and will keep you content for a substantial amount of time. I paid $2.00 for an EVOL Shredded Beef Burrito and it really came in handy when I had an hour to grab lunch, check my email and finish up my lab report. I already put in a request at my local grocery store to stock up on more varieties, and if you haven't tried this yet - you need to! If you have, please let us know which one is your favorite.
