Taco Bell's ™ New Quesarito

Russ Myers


Food Fight!!

Amalgamating the flimsy glory of the quesadilla and the hearty fortitude of the burrito, Taco Bell launched its latest hybrid item today. Behold the Quesarito.

The Quesarito arrives for no particular reason at all. There wasn't a massive launch or an intense marketing campaign, simply an idea that takes little goading for the mind of the American consumer to get behind. Think a joining of unlikely friends.

Now, the Quesarito is hardly a new idea. It's actually the acknowledged version of a secret menu item from Taco Bell's arch-foe Chipotle. It even shares the same name.

Stove Top


1 lb
ground beef
1 pkg
old el paso™ taco seasoning mix
1 pkg
old el paso™ heat & serve fiesta rice
old el paso™ old el paso™ flour tortillas for burritos
1 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
8 Tbsp
sour cream
8 Tbsp
prepared guacamole

Directions Step-By-Step

Add the ground beef to a large skillet over medium heat. Stir often to break up the meat until cooked through, about 10 minutes.

Drain the grease from the meat and stir in the packet of taco seasoning and water, as called for on the seasoning packet. Cook for 2 minutes and remove from the heat.
While the meat is cooking, cook the rice according to package instructions.

Lay one tortilla on a microwave-safe plate and top with a sprinkling of cheddar cheese. Top with a second tortilla. Microwave for 15 seconds or until the cheese has melted.
Spoon a bit of rice onto the tortilla, topped with the ground beef, more cheese, sour cream, and guacamole as desired. Don’t overfill your tortillas or they’ll be difficult to close.

Fold the ends of the tortillas up and bring the center over the filling. Roll the burritos closed.
