5-Minute Burrito

Once you’ve ventured into the frozen foods aisle, it’s easy to think there’s no hope for a nutritious meal. Not so! A good-quality frozen meal or burrito can be made even better with some quick additions. Start with a product containing whole-food ingredients that you can pronounce, and with no trans fats. We recommend brands such as Amy’s Kitchen or Kashi, which make great-tasting and healthy all-natural frozen foods. Try to find a product with at least 15 grams of protein.

Instructions
  1. Remove plastic wrap from burrito. Wrap burrito loosely in paper towel, place in microwave, and heat for 2–2½ minutes or until hot.
  2. While burrito is cooking, quarter tomatoes and cut avocado in half. Scoop avocado flesh out of the skin with a spoon. (Refrigerate leftover avocado in plastic bag.)
  3. When burrito is heated through, transfer it to the plate and add tomatoes, avocado, and salsa.
Recipe Notes

If your favorite burrito is short on protein, consider adding a hard-boiled egg, canned tuna, or cottage cheese as a side to bump up the protein.
