I love delicious natural foods. When I'm not in the mood to cook, or I don't have time to make a gourmet meal, the next best thing is healthy, natural frozen foods. After checking out Red's All Natural Burritos at my Whole Foods Market for a while, I'm really excited to get to actually review them. Their company has small, honest beginnings that have turned into an up-and-coming, successful natural foods business. They now also have quesadillas which look amazing too. I bet Buddy would love to try one! We'll be looking for them on our next trip to Whole Foods. Here's the background on Red's from their Facebook page.
"A lifelong foodie, Mike had always been searching for the perfect meal. Finally, after tasting his wife’s burrito recipe, Mike knew he had found the answer… and his trusty mutt, Red, agreed. Realizing that we had the best burrito recipe around was only the beginning; we then had to scour the country searching for the best all-natural and organic ingredients out there. We use only antibiotic and hormone-free meats and cheeses, along with the highest quality veggies, beans and spices. We pile everything high on top of our one-of-a-kind, bakery produced tortilla, ultimately bringing our customers the best burritos and quesadillas, period. Enjoy"
My family and I were able to try their Steak, Chicken, and Beans & Rice Burritos. We thoroughly enjoyed them! We also discovered that they are best when thawed out FIRST, then cooked in the microwave, oven, or toaster oven. Otherwise we felt that the tortilla gets super crispy going straight from the freezer to the microwave (that happens with most frozen burritos though). Still delicious either way, but the last couple we had were certainly the best with a soft tortilla on the outside!
The chicken burrito was definitely my favorite. Not only is each burrito super huge, but they're packed with fabulously natural, simple ingredients that boast big flavors. I also like how much they emphasize that they only use the highest quality ingredients in their products. It really shows in the taste factor of their final product. No fillers or junk, just REAL ingredients! I also love that one whole burrito has whopping 32 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber (the Nutrition Facts differ on their site from my packaging, not sure why). Great choice for a meal and pretty close to what a homemade burrito would taste like!
One thing about eating non-organic meats that often bugs me is hormones and antibiotics. I don't want that stuff in my body! It is so great to see that Red's makes that extra effort to keep their product as natural as possible. I see absolutely no ingredients that are even remotely artificial and their chicken is hormone and antibiotic free! Check out the label for their chicken burrito.
See? Pretty darn natural. Big, all-natural burritos with nothing to hide. Great taste and a quick meal! Yep, you'll love them, and so will your family!
