Frozen Friday: Jose Ole - Steak and Cheese Chimichanga

Jose Ole's Steak and Cheese Chimichanga is a lightly-fried burrito filled with steak and cheese.

A 5-ounce frozen burrito sells for about $1.

For the most part, these are cheap, convenient, and portable. They are a step up from the cheapest of frozen burritos and contain no soy protein mixed in with the beef.

The thing I hate about microwave cooking is that there is always leakage from burritos, pot pies, and the like. The insides never seem to want to stay inside. It's not so convenient when the the filling comes out the middle of a burrito.

I prefer chimichangas over burritos in general. The frying gives the flour tortilla a bit more flavor and more variance in texture.

The filling here was very goopy. It was tasty enough, but nonetheless goopy. Much of the steak were shredded strands largely lost in the mush. I got exactly one big chunk of steak and the rest was goop.

The cheese was nice melted and flavorful going well with the mushy filling. The filling had a seasoned beefy quality with a slight tomato tang and a hint of spiciness.

Overall, Jose Ole's Steak and Cheese Chimichanga was good in the flavor department, but lacking in the area of texture. It was a bit like eating a cheese and gravy burrito.
