I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions about Alpha Foods burritos. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.
Let me start by saying that my boys do not gravitate towards vegan or vegetarian dishes. But, when they are hungry, they’ll eat them just the same. Knowing that is why I was willing to have them try Alpha Foods burritos.

Our Experience with Alpha Burritos
At their core, my boys are more carnivore than plant eater. But, that doesn’t stop me from introducing foods like these to them. After all, too much meat is not a good thing.
I picked up the Mexicali and Pizza flavors at our local Kroger branded store.
After microwaving per the packaging, I used a panini press sent to use for this campaign to help crisp up the tortillas.
The verdict was mixed. Each boy got a piece from each burrito.
My youngest liked the pizza one so much that he asked if there was any left. Or if a brother didn’t want his portion.
The Mexicali wasn’t as well received. J let me sample a bit of the inside and I could see that the spice profile wouldn’t appeal to him. The other boys said the flavor was okay, but they got hung up on their being soy instead of a meat like chicken.
So, not a total win for getting the boys to eat more plant-based foods. Rather, it showed me that some flavor profiles just transfer better for them than others.
If you are looking to try something that is plant based and dairy free, I would check them out. They included a few coupons to try their pot pies and my youngest is eager to do so.
