Evol Carnitas & Salsa Verde Enchiladas Review

Evol Carnitas & Salsa Verde Enchiladas

As longtime fans of Evol’s line of frozen foods, we tend to get excited whenever we learn that the company has added something new to its line. So when we came upon Evol’s Carnitas & Salsa Verde Enchiladas at our local grocery store, we tossed it into the cart immediately and cooked it up later that day.

Evol is not exactly a newcomer to the enchilada scene. We’ve also tried their Chipotle Chicken & Uncured Bacon Enchiladas and their Vegetable Enchiladas, both of which were pretty good. So we had confidence going into this one that it would be something we’d probably enjoy.

It may be hard to tell at a glance, but this dish is just loaded with salsa verde. And that salsa has a nice little bite to it. It’s not spicy enough to send you running for a glass of milk, but it’s got some kick. It’s also got some lime juice squeezed in, so every bite is permeated with a lovely citrus flavor.

Evol’s enchilada shells are usually great, with an authentic taste and texture, though in this case the shells get a little soggy with all the salsa verde. It’s not a huge complaint, but it’s worth noting.

We did struggle a little bit trying to locate the carnitas. Like so many of Evol’s other foods, this one is pretty skimpy on the meat content. If you pull one of these apart, you’ll find the little chunks of pinkish brown pork, but we don’t think it’s unreasonable to wish there were more of it.

We were pleasantly surprised to find full pinto beans inside instead of mashed refried beans, so that’s a big plus.

So what’s our final verdict? Well, Evol’s Carnitas & Salsa Verde Enchiladas are much heavier on the salsa than they are on the carnitas. If that’s not a problem for you, you’re going to love these.
