Reds All Natural Burrito Review
So I took it home and tried it. It took about 4 minutes to cook in my microwave. They recommend 3 minutes on each side. It was kind of watery when I took it out and cut it open. Then for the taste test. To my surprise it was very spicy, much too spicy for my tastes. After a few bites my mouth was already on fire. The packaging didn't mention anything about it being very spicy. I couldn't really taste anything besides the heat which was disappointing. I ended up just eating the outside tortilla and some of the black beans, but I had to toss the rest because it was too hot.
Overall I think this product has potential if they cut down on the spice. I looked at the ingredients and it has chili pepper, cayenne pepper, and white pepper, so that is probably what is contributing to the taste. If you like spicy foods, give this one a try.
The only other product I have tried which is similar to this is Amy's frozen burritos. The have a bean and cheddar burrito which is smaller, but pretty good. They usually sell for around $2.50. I buy these sometimes when they are on sale.
Red's has several other varieties of burritos such as steak, chicken, pork, and turkey but unfortunately I will not be trying them after being let down by the bean and rice burrito.
