Lately we’ve been having a lot of fun replicating some of the most popular foods from Taco Bell. There’s Taco Bell Burrito Supreme, Taco Bell Nachos Bell Grande, and Taco Bell Beefy 5-Layer burrito, just to name a few. This Quesarito recipe is sure to come in handy, since rumor has it Taco Bell may be taking it off the menu.
Whether they really get rid of Quesarito at their restaurants or not doesn’t matter anymore, because all you need is this easy recipe to make the best-selling burrito yourself. The Quesarito is a cheesy sensation. Each burrito is made with 2 tortillas with nacho cheese sandwiched between them. Inside the second tortilla there’s shredded cheddar cheese, Mexican Rice, ground beef, sour cream, and chipotle sauce.
Once you’ve combined all the ingredients and wrapped the tortillas the burrito is grilled for a few minutes. This makes the cheese extra melty, and adds some crunch to the outer tortilla. It’s absolutely sensational!
