Evol Paleo Friendly Guajillo Chicken & Cauliflower Review

Evol Paleo Friendly Guajillo Chicken & Cauliflower

If you only know Evol for their frozen burritos (which are delicious), you might be surprised to find out the frozen food maker is actually quite experimental with their foods. They’ve dabbled in everything from street tacos to mac and cheese to breakfast sandwiches.

Recently, Evol added even more options to their line with a batch of Paleo-friendly products. Today, we’re checking out one of those, the Evol Paleo Friendly Guajillo Chicken & Cauliflower.

This is pretty simple to cook, as it just takes four to five minutes in the microwave. If you’ve ever heated up a Lean Cuisine meal (or any of Evol’s bowls), then you should already know what to expect. If you want to read the whole process straight off the box, check out the package scans at the bottom of this review.

The chicken is fantastic. Holy moly, is this stuff good. It’s soft to the point where it starts falling apart in your mouth, though it’s not soggy at all. The only unfortunate part of all this is that there’s hardly any of it here. We only found maybe six pieces in our bowl, and those pieces were pretty small. Far too often, we picked up a piece of what we thought was chicken, only to discover it was actually cauliflower.

As deceptive as it may be, the cauliflower is still good. It has a nice satisfying crunch to it, and the cauliflower flavor isn’t overwhelming. In fact, this stuff really lets the sauce do the talking, which we’re totally fine with.

The guajillo sauce is really the main event here. This stuff is delicious and surprisingly creamy. It’s one of those sauces that tends to improve everything it touches, and chicken and cauliflower are certainly not exceptions. It’s made from guajillo peppers, as the name implies, but you’d almost swear there are hints of beans and cheese to this. It’s a complex flavor that really serves this dish well.

It’s a little bit spicy, but not too bad. We did find our sinuses clearing while eating this, but we certainly didn’t have to go running for a bucket of water to douse our flaming mouths.

This bowl contains 390 calories, which means it’s not the lightest meal in the freezer aisle. It also contains 890 mg of sodium, which is a bit high even for a frozen food. If you’re trying to reduce your sodium intake, you should probably skip this meal (in fact, you might want to cut frozen meals from your diet entirely).

The Evol Paleo Friendly Guajillo Chicken & Cauliflower is a really tasty bowl of food. It’s the sauce that makes it stand out, of course, but that doesn’t mean the rest of it isn’t great as well. This frozen meal is definitely a winner, even if you’re not practicing a strict Paleo diet.
