Developed by chefs in ConAgra's kitchen, the new recipes all boast just 270 calories or less and are made using non-GMO ingredients.
Unwrapped Burrito Bowl consists of organic black and pinto beans, fire-roasted corn, red bell peppers and scallions with organic whole grain brown rice in a tomatillo sauce.
