Copycat Quesarito

 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
  • Tortillas
  • Colby jack cheese 
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Chipotle sauce (Taco Bell has some you can buy at the grocery store)
  • Sour cream
  • Lime, optional
  1. Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once browned, add taco seasoning and any water needed.
  2. Meanwhile, fix the Spanish rice according to package instructions with the can of diced tomatoes.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Roll up and place in a skillet with some heavy on top to brown just a little bit more on each side.
