Evol Mac & Cheese Review: Chipotle Chicken

Evol Chipotle Chicken Mac & Cheese

For the mac and cheese enthusiast without a lot of time, Evol’s lineup of frozen mac & cheese dinners is a real godsend. All you need is three and a half minutes to¬†microwave one up (or 40 minutes to bake one in the oven if you’ve got more time).

The Chipotle Chicken Mac & Cheese offers a spicier twist on the traditional mac, with white meat chicken, chipotle cheddar sauce, and a crispy tortilla crumble.

As you can see from the picture above, the chicken is just sort of plopped on top of everything else instead of being mixed in and doused in sauce from the get-go. It’s a minor quibble, and one that can be fixed with a couple stirs of the fork, but it did feel a little disappointing at first glance.

Appearance aside, there’s really not a lot to complain about. Evol’s chicken tends to be extremely rich in flavor, and the chunks present in this dish are no exception. In fact, the chicken might be the best part of this whole meal.

The chipotle cheddar sauce is tasty–and only mildly spicy for the spice-ophobes out there–and the tortilla crumbles add just the right touch of crunch to an otherwise crunch-free meal.

We here at Freezer Meal Frenzy found Evol’s Truffle Parmesan Mac & Cheese to be slightly tastier, but the Chipotle Chicken still makes a pretty fine dinner.

As a side note, if you’re a fan of Evol’s chicken-based products, the Sriracha Chicken Big Burrito is a must-try.
