EVOL Veggie Fajita BurritoI stumbled across a pink and white wrapper the other day in the frozen burrito area of my grocery store and after glancing over the plethora of information that adorned the simple packaging, you would have thought I stuck gold in the form of an EVOL Veggie Fajita Burrito.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 burrito (170 grams)
Calories: 290
Total Fat: 3.5 grams, 5%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 440 mg, 18%
Carbohydrates: 56 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 20%
Sugars: 3 grams
Protein: 10 grams

What attracted me most was the 70% organic, vegan ingredient list. The burrito itself is an organic whole wheat tortilla with tons of veggies, organic rice, organic black beans and salsa. As is customary when microwaving burritos, some areas where the tortilla was folded over will be slightly hard and some areas will be slightly softened. If you want to avoid this, utilize one of the other advised cooking methods (unfortunately, a microwave is all that this college girl has). The filling has a nice, southwestern flare with a thorough flavor and appealing texture that compliments the burrito very nicely thanks to the crunchy corn, smooth beans, al dente rice and robust salsa.

Each insanely delicious, flavorful and good sized (170 grams) EVOL Veggie Fajita Burrito provides 290 calories from 3 grams of total fat (5% of the daily value), no saturated fat, 18% of the DV for sodium, 5 grams of total fiber (20% of the DV) and 9 grams of protein.

An EVOL burrito cost me $2.50, which is worth every penny. If you spot these chic wrappers in the frozen food section of your nearest grocery store, stock up!! You do not want to miss out on these diet friendly, all natural, certified organic, utterly delicious creations. And check out the story behind these intriguing burritos. It's very interesting tale and has some ties to the Bear Naked brand.
