Amy’s has you covered. We were looking for a burrito between 250-500 calories, with no more than 5 grams of saturated fat, at least 4 grams of fiber, 8 grams of protein, less than 560 milligrams of sodium, and no artificial flavors, preservatives, partially hydrogenated oils, or trans fats.
Start by warming the burrito in your microwave for about a minute. Next, transfer the burrito to a lightly greased sauté pan, and place it on your stove over medium heat. Cook the burrito until lightly browned on both sides, then top with guacamole or sour cream (or both!) and serve.
