Amy's Black Bean Enchilada Meal (lunch 10.17.10)

I just finished putting all my groceries away, and now I'm finally sitting and having lunch. I'm having Amy's Black Bean Enchilada Meal. I picked it up today in the frozen foods section, specifically to have for lunch. It looked appealing and I hadn't had it in a while, so I figured I'd "re-taste" for a quick, healthy meal when I got home. Just as I had remembered, it's quite yummy and full of flavor. Amy's describes the meal as "Organic corn tortilla filled with organic black beans and vegetables and covered with a traditional Mexican sauce. Spanish rice and pinto beans on the side." Like all Amy's products, it is made with wholesome, organic ingredients and packed with nutrition. The enchilada is filled with a delectable blend of black beans, vegetables, tofu, and spices. It's covered with a rich Mexican sauce to keep the enchilada soft and moist, yum! My favorite part to
this meal, the beans, are unlike most frozen beans you generally find in frozen meals. They're whole pinto beans cooked to be soft like refried-like beans with a warm, genuine taste and texture. The Mexican rice with corn has just a little sweetness to balance the spices, and has just enough sauce to give it flavor and a nice texture. The only downside to the meal, is that the rice is white rice. More often than not, Amy's meals are made with organic brown rice, so when I checked out the ingredients and learned that the rice in this was white, I was a bit disappointed. I guess white rice isn't so bad just once, and it's accompanied with such a great taste, and lots of healthy ingredients, so I let it slide. The meal however, filled me up pretty quickly, and was a good size for only 330 calories. If you're looking for Mexican food without all the fat & calories, but with all the flavor, this meal will definitely do the trick.
