Red’s Steak & Cheddar Burrito Review

Red's Steak & Cheddar Burrito

We love burritos so much here at Freezer Meal Frenzy that we created a site just so we could review them. That’s right, Freezer Meal Frenzy originally started as a frozen burrito review site before we moved onto other sorts of food. So whenever we get a chance to review a burrito we haven’t tried, we tend to get a little nostalgic.

Today, we’re quite happy to be reviewing Red’s Steak & Cheddar Burrito. We’ve had some killer burritos from Red’s before, so we were very excited to check this one out. (We do love a good steak burrito!)

Now, normally we use a special cooking method that we created for frozen burritos, but when it comes to Red’s, our special instructions just won’t do. You see, Red’s has a very finicky set of instructions for you to follow if you want the perfect Red’s burrito.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit and stick the burrito into the microwave for about a minute. Pull it out of the microwave, put it onto a greased cookie sheet, and pop it into the oven for about 12 to 14 minutes. After that, the burrito should be nice and toasty. We say “should be,” because ours was still a bit cold in the middle after 14 minutes, so we popped it back in for a few more.

Now, this is a mighty tasty burrito. The cheddar really shows its stuff here, lending the whole thing a deliciously cheesy flavor. You can see in our image above just how orange this thing is on the inside. It also has a bit of mozzarella mixed in for good measure.

In our burrito, the steak seemed to have made its way into the tips of the burrito, so the middle had almost no steak while the ends were nothing but. This is a lovely steak, too. It’s chewy and gristly, and it has a lovely beefy flavor. It also blends phenomenally well with the cheese. Whoever put this thing together really knew what they were doing.

There are a few other things thrown in here: you’ll find some brown rice, some pinto beans, and a little bit of corn. Really, we think we found just one kernel of corn in our entire burrito. The steak and cheese are really the main event here.

We didn’t find this to be spicy at all, but by the time we were done eating it, our sinuses had cleared a bit. It’s possible we were just starting to catch a cold, because we really don’t think there’s any spice to this (it does contain trace amounts of jalapeño, though we didn’t detect any while we were eating).

This burrito contains 320 calories (90 from fat). Since you could easily eat two of these in a sitting, that’s a bit high. We’d love to see this thing clock in at under 250, but alas, that’s wishful thinking. Steak eaters just have to deal with some extra calories, apparently.

The Red’s Steak & Cheddar Burrito is a thing of beauty. It’s a bit higher in calories than we would have liked, but it does taste very good. As long as you can practice a little moderation, we think you’ll really enjoy this frozen burrito.

No chicken, and no beef. Bad frozen food.

Tried the chicken cilantro. No taste, 3 black beans, 2 corn kernels, no chicken. I expected more from organic than the cheaper brands but the cheaper brands have taste.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
