If you're looking for a delicious, fast, and relatively healthy snack that you can take right out of your freezer and eat in under five minutes, look no further than Amy's Snacks "Nacho Cheese and Bean," a snack food that's criminally delicious.

If you went to a college with a convenience store and a lot of liberals, then chances are you're familiar with Amy's brand of food. Their company, establishing in 1988, has been bringing quality foods to freezers across the nation that are filled with delicious, organic ingredients. The only drawbacks are that these bad boys often lack the "grease factor" that make their unhealthy counterparts so gosh-darn satisfying (and deadly), and because their product sources organic ingredients, it also costs a little more for a little less in quantity.

The Nacho Cheese and Bean snacks are, perhaps, the only exception to the first half of that rule within the brand. They're a hybrid of the pizza bite and the microwave bean burrito, and they combine the best of both worlds. And when we say best, we mean undisputed best.

When it comes to microwaveable bean burritos, none match the greasy, awful elegance of the Taco Bell Bean Burrito, a hodgepodge of low quality ingredients that do wonderful things together. Whenever I look for a frozen bean burrito in the freezer section of my supermarket, that's the taste I'm looking to emulate. It's one of those comfort foods that never stops being comforting, even as Taco Bell keeps on getting exposed for the gross eatery that it is.

When I saw that Amy's had a take on the bean burrito, and that the company tried to give it the pizza bites treatment, I was seriously skeptical. I've never been more wrong in my life. The texture of the beans serves as a surprisingly soft, fluffy pillow for the gooeyness of the nacho cheese. The light touch of tomato in each bite helps round out the way it hits your tongue, and boy, does it ever.

The best part? Unlike the Taco Bell Bean Burrito, or the myriad of other frozen burritos available at your supermarket, these don't make you feel like crap after you eat them. Chalk it up to no preservatives and all organic foodstuffs, and you have yourself a balanced meal disguised as a guilty pleasure.
