Evol Burrito Review: Bean, Rice & Cheddar

Evol Bean Rice and Cheddar

Evol’s line of frozen burritos almost always impresses us (though its not without the occasional disappointment). They typically feature the high-quality flavor combinations that we crave. With that in mind, we decided to see how their Bean, Rice & Cheddar Burrito stacks up.

This burrito sticks with the classic formula of the average microwavable burrito. You’ve heard it before: stuff some pinto beans and rice into a tortilla, add a bit of cheese of some sort, and voilà! You’ve got a meal.

Obviously, it’s not exactly that simple, but the point is that the Bean, Rice & Cheddar doesn’t throw any curveballs.

However, it’s not completely without its surprises either.

For example, we were delighted to find bits of cilantro big enough to be visible in our cross-section photo. This burrito also makes the wise choice to replace the standard refried bean paste we typically find in lower-end burritos with a lovely brown rice that’s emphasized with lime juice. And, as the name implies, the filling is topped with a smidgen of cheddar.

It all combines to create a flavor that’s a bit more refined than your run-of-the-mill frozen burrito. Sure, using a word like “upscale” would be a bit much, but Evol’s Bean, Rice & Cheddar Burrito maintains a higher level of quality than a lot of its direct competitors. Once again, Evol wins us over.
