It's a quesadilla, it's a burrito...no, it's a quesarito! These copycat quesaritos are one-of-a-kind!
One of my favorite things to do is make copycat Taco Bell recipes at home. We love the homemade chicken quesadillas and nachos bell grande. I make them all the time. Every once in a while, I will see if Taco Bell has anything new on their menu since we rarely eat out. I found the quesarito and was immediately convinced that it was my next copycat recipe to come up with. A quesarito is a combination of quesadilla and burrito. Yes, a combination of the two. Heaven, right?!
So what you do is you take a cheese quesadilla, top it with seasoned beef, rice, sour cream, and chipotle sauce, and roll it up like a burrito. Taco Bell uses nacho sauce in theirs as well, but I skipped on that, thinking it may be too much cheese. It's actually a fairly filling burrito and it's just so awesome. I definitely rank this high on my list of copycat recipes I've tried and made. It is the perfect recipe for a Taco Tuesday (like tonight!).
What you need:
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 1 box Spanish rice
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- Colby jack cheese
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Chipotle sauce (Taco Bell has some you can buy at the grocery store)
- Sour cream
- Lime, optional
- Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once browned, add taco seasoning and any water needed.
- Meanwhile, fix the Spanish rice according to package instructions with the can of diced tomatoes.
- While the ground beef and Spanish rice cooks, make quesadillas by topping one tortilla with colby jack cheese and cover with a second tortilla. Spray the outside of the quesadilla with nonstick cooking spray and slightly brown each side in a skillet.
- To assemble, put seasoned beef down the middle of a quesadilla. Then add rice, sour cream, and chipotle sauce. You can also squeeze a little bit of lime juice on top, if desired.
- Roll up and place in a skillet with some heavy on top to brown just a little bit more on each side.
