Amy’s Light & Lean Bean & Cheese Burrito Review

Amy's Light & Lean Bean & Cheese Burrito

If you’re looking for a low-calorie version of the classic frozen burrito, Amy’s Kitchen makes an attempt at romancing you with the Light & Lean Bean & Cheese Burrito.

While we admire the effort, it simply doesn’t taste very good. The pinto bean filling has a generic taste, and it leaves a strange aftertaste that will have you rushing for a glass of milk.

This is somewhat surprising, since Amy’s Kitchen also has the classic Bean & Cheese Burrito, which is quite good and contains only 30 more calories than the Light & Lean version. Of course, it does have half the cholesterol, but in an M. Night Shyamalan twist, it has more sodium and more carbs than its twin.

There are far better low-calorie burritos on the market these days. Sweet Earth, for example, has the Lighten Up! breakfast burrito, which has 90 fewer calories than Amy’s Light & Lean Burrito. For the same amount of calories, you could swap Amy’s Light & Lean with Sweet Earth’s Kyoto, which is incredibly tasty. And those are just two of your many options.

To make a mark on the crowded “healthy” frozen burrito market, the folks at Amy’s Kitchen really needed to do something better than make a much less flavorful version of their Bean & Cheese Burrito while removing very little of the things that make it unhealthy. We must encourage you to look elsewhere for a low-cal burrito fix.
