Amy's Frozen Burritos - Black Bean & Veggie/Burrito Especial

Frozen burritos.  Finally?  Amy's brand tends towards the vegetarian and gluten free and whatnot.  Perfect for this quest into the meatless lands.  Unfortunately, all this organic-ness does not help the with one of the common frozen burro problems.  The tortilla was stiff and plasticky, the folded over areas so thick as to be gummy when bitten.  The ingredients, while distinct in their seemingly wholesomeness, were also differentiated by a less intensely salty flavor.  The ingredients also, similar to other frozens, achieved lava hotness.  Daniel recounts his wife's run-in with a food-inspector-friend at Pro's Ranch Market.  Worst parts, in order, per Ben: 1) Burning tongue, 2) the tortilla, 3) tortilla sticking to the paper towel and tearing.  Ben affects some Spanish, which Daniel misconstrues as a character from Total Recall.  Kuato!  Oh, and Ben is right, Total Recall came out in 1990, so technically a '90s movie.  Apologies for various audio problems.  We really need to figure that out one day.

Ingredients: Black Bean & Vegetable - "Organic flour tortilla wrapped around a combination of organic black beans and vegetables in a mild Mexican sauce. Nice and spicy. Non-dairy/no cholesterol."  Burrito Especial - "This burrito combines organic white rice, black beans, vegetables, cheese and a flavorful Spanish sauce wrapped in a delicate light tortilla."

Ben - Yesterday's underwear, nothing wrong with it, it's just not today's underwear.
Daniel - The three-boobed lady in Total Recall, all show and no substance.  A shitty make-up job and she gets shot through the middle boob.
