The Taco Bell quesarito, a burrito wrapped in a quesadilla, is really happening
Cheesy burrito fans, your prayers have been answered. Taco Bell is officially adding the quesarito, a burrito wrapped in a quesadilla, to its menu Monday.
The quesarito includes a beef burrito with rice, chipotle sauce and reduced-fat sour cream in a grilled quesadilla full of melted cheese. You can also order the quesadilla-burrito hybrid with shredded chicken or steak.
“We’re constantly hearing stories about two great things coming together to create something extraordinary and that takes on a life of its own,” Chris Brandt, Taco Bell’s chief marketing officer, said in a release.
Previously, a quesarito was an off-menu item you could sometimes get a willing burrito slinger at Chipotle to make for you.
Taco Bell started testing the quesarito back in February in Oklahoma City. According to Brandt, the quesarito is the bestselling product in a test market since the Doritos Locos Tacos.
The suggested retail price for the quesarito is $1.99 for seasoned beef (650 calories; 34 grams total fat), $2.79 for shredded chicken (620 calories; 30g total fat) and $2.99 for steak (640 calories; 31g total fat).
