Evol Egg & Green Chile Burrito Review

Evol Egg & Green Chile Burrito

Evol has a pretty substantial line of frozen burritos, and we’ve tried most (if not all) of them here at Freezer Meal Frenzy. So before we review the Evol Egg & Green Chili Burrito, we have to admit that we already reviewed it once in the past. Yet Evol changed the packaging, adding a nice little image of the sun to the design (which is what they’ve been doing with their breakfast items). So we figured it’s as good time as any to revisit this classic breakfast burrito.

The last time we reviewed this, we said it was “a great way to start the morning,” and we pointed out that Evol’s website doesn’t file this under its breakfast burritos but under Classics. Clearly, this is a burrito Evol has great amounts of confidence in.

Now, we heated this using our time-proven cooking method for Evol burritos. We first thawed the burrito in the fridge overnight, then we preheated the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. We then wrapped the burrito in aluminum foil and popped it into the oven for about 40 minutes, flipping it over at about the halfway point.

As the package suggests, this is a pretty simple burrito. The bulk of the flavor actually comes from the potatoes, which take up a good deal of room inside the shell. They are quite delicious, and they make this a heartier meal than it would otherwise be, which we appreciate.

Next up, there’s a fair amount of scrambled egg inside as well, which you can clearly see in the image above. However, the potatoes tend to drown out the egg, flavor-wise. You’ll also find some pinto beans, cheddar cheese, and carrots inside, though they’re also drown out by the potatoes. In fact, this time, there were fewer pinto beans in our burrito than there were the last time we ate this.

Last but not least, this is loaded with peppers. You’ll find Hatch green chiles and jalapeños inside. They complement the potatoey flavor quite well. It’s more of an undertone, but you’ll definitely taste that it’s in there. Now, while we found this to be a little spicy last time, we barely noticed any kick this time. Perhaps we’re just growing desensitized to spicy foods. We’ve certainly reviewed several of them by now.

This burrito is fairly small, yet it’s not light on calories. At 330 calories (90 from fat), this could be a full meal on its own. While you could easily chomp down two of these suckers in a single sitting, we don’t recommend doing so. Take this as a very small meal or a part of a greater meal that complements this burrito with some low-calorie sides.

The Evol Egg & Green Chili Burrito is a true classic. We love this just as much the second time as we did the first time, and we think it’s a great starter for a delicious breakfast. Just be careful, because it’s certainly not the lightest burrito on the market.
