Evol Burrito Review: Cilantro Lime Chicken

Evol Cilantro Lime Chicken

Evol’s line of frozen burritos is pretty highly regarded here at Freezer Meal Frenzy (with the occasional exception). Their Sriracha Chicken Big Burrito, for example, is one of our favorites frozen burritos currently on the market. So it was a matter of necessity that we try out the Cilantro Lime Chicken Burrito, a longstanding classic of Evol’s product selection.

The most interesting thing about this burrito is that it takes the complete opposite approach as the Sriracha Chicken Big. Where the Sriracha chicken packs intense flavor into every bite, the Cilantro Chicken holds back to bring its more subtle elements to the surface. Lime juice, for example, is too often hidden under layers and layers of potent ingredients where it tends to get lost. Here, it’s allowed to take center stage.

It does mirror the Sriracha in one important way: the chicken is pretty scarce. This lets the brown rice handle most of the flavor, which, again, allows the lime flavor to come to the surface in a way it normally doesn’t get a chance to.

There are also some black beans and tomato chunks, as well as a bit of cheddar cheese, but none of these is allowed to steal the spotlight. This is a burrito with a narrow focus.

If you’re looking for a taste that will knock you off your feet, the Cilantro Lime Chicken probably isn’t for you. Some might even argue that it’s a little bland. But if you’re interested in enjoying something with some clever subtleties, try this out. You just might love it.

As an additional note, this burrito is great with a side of salsa to dip it in.
