Amy’s Gluten Free Black Bean & Quinoa Burrito Review

Amy's Gluten Free Black Bean & Quinoa Burrito

We really love frozen burritos here at Freezer Meal Frenzy, and Amy’s Kitchen makes a ton of those. Of course, that led us to the Gluten Free Black Bean & Quinoa Burrito, which we knew we just had to try.

First off, we should admit that, despite the directions on the packaging, we let this one thaw overnight first. The following day, we preheated the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit, wrapped this guy in tinfoil, and tossed it in for about 40 minutes, flipping it over at about the halfway point.

While it’s hard to see in the picture below, the gluten-free shell ended up a lot softer than we had expected. In fact, it looked like it was starting to dissolve by the time we got it out of the oven.

Despite the weirdness of the shell, the stuff inside was quite alright. The black beans dominate the flavor here. Every single bite is loaded with that black bean taste. If you love black beans, this burrito might be your new favorite.

But the black beans aren’t alone. The quinoa is delicious, though we would have liked a little more of it to balance out the black bean taste. There are some veggies, like corn and bell peppers, but we barely noticed they were even there. The two ingredients in this burrito’s title really steal the spotlight.

At 220 calories (45 from fat) this is one seriously lean burrito. However, it probably won’t fill you up on its own. Pair this with a side salad or even a second burrito if you’re looking to satisfy a serious hunger.

Amy’s Black Bean & Quinoa Burrito is a nice, healthy snack, but it’s not really functional as a full meal. It’s not our favorite burrito, or even our favorite burrito with quinoa (that honor would have to go to Sweet Earth’s Peruvian Burrito), but it’s pretty darn good regardless.
