Carl’s Jr. Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Burrito

huevosrancheros.jpgAt first glance, the new Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Burrito available at Carl’s Jr. seems like it has a lot going for it. It is made with refried beans, scrambled eggs, shredded jack and cheddar cheeses, ranchero sauce, and crisp corn tortilla strips, all wrapped in a flour tortilla. The problem is that the two main components of the burrito – refried beans and scrambled eggs – are both bland and boring. The tortilla strips, which are a great idea, were nothing but soggy pieces of corn tortillas by the time I got to them. Honestly, I thought that the best part of the burrito was the ranchero sauce. It’s not a good thing when the condiment is the best part of the meal. If anyone from Carl’s Jr. asked, I’d tell them to replace the refried beans with hash browns and sausage and get rid of the tortilla strips. Then it would be a breakfast burrito worth buying. Fortunately, Carl’s Jr. has lots of other good stuff on their breakfsast menu, including the tasty Breakfast Burger.

Phoood rating: So-so

I haven't tried the burrito from Carl's, but I did have one at Wendy's the other day (you have to hunt for a Wendy's serving breakfast, but there are a few of them out there). I was rather disappointed with that offering. Overall, I've liked the Wendy's breakfast items, but not the burrito - I think people just have a problem making it right.

I definately think it is really good, and a perfect non-meat choice for those of us that are celebrating lent (can't eat meat on Friday's)
