Lean Cuisine Origins Cheese & Bean Enchilada Verde Review

Lean Cuisine Origins Cheese & Bean Enchilada Verde

We’ve already tried Lean Cuisine Cheese & Bean Enchilada Verde once, and we were less than impressed. Still, when we saw that Lean Cuisine had updated the packaging for this meal, we decided to give it another try. We hoped that, since Lean Cuisine had already changed the box, they’d changed the recipe as well.

Unfortunately, a quick scan of the label confirmed that this dish is very similar to the original meal. Because we’re committed to our reviews — or gluttons for punishment — we decided to heat it up and try it anyway.

When we took this out of the microwave, the first thing we noticed was that sauce was slightly different. The original version was made with a smelly verde sauce. This sauce feels a little more like enchilada sauce, and we wouldn’t describe it as smelly. It doesn’t taste good, but it does feel like an improvement over the original version of the dish.

Unfortunately, the ingredients here still don’t feel fresh at all. The corn and beans feel like they’ve been sitting in a can for ages, and the tortilla really tastes like it was reheated. Once again, we couldn’t detect the presence of cheese. Even though the sauce is improved, this is still a pretty bad meal.

The Lean Cuisine Origins Cheese & Bean Enchilada Verde has received a makeover, but that doesn’t mean it’s worth eating. No matter what the packaging looks like, we’d recommend passing on this Lean Cuisine enchilada. If you’re going to eat a Lean Cuisine meal, you should try one of their pasta dishes instead. If you’re more in the mood for an enchilada, well, there are plenty of better ones on the market.
