News: Taco Bell Testing New Quesarito

Taco Bell is testing their own version of a Quesarito (quesadilla-burrito mash up) for a limited-time out in Oklahoma City.

It's basically a 3-cheese blend quesadilla rolled into a burrito with a filling of seasoned ground beef, Latin rice, reduced fat sour cream, and nacho cheese.

The beef can be substituted with chicken or steak and the test prices range from $1.99 to $2.99 (depending on whether you go for ground beef, chicken, or steak).

It was actually tested last year at a Taco Bell restaurant here in Southern California, but I missed it by all of one day when I went to check it out.

The Quesarito is probably best known as a Chipotle "secret menu" item (although it's hit or miss whether you can get one depending on your local Chipotle). That being said, the idea isn't a new one for Taco Bell...

Some of you might remember the Beefy 5-Layer Burrito back in 2010. Similar to the Quesarito (but much more generically named), it also had two flour tortillas sandwiching a layer of cheese as the wrap for a burrito, but the cheese was warm nacho cheese rather than shredded cheddar, mozzarella, and jack. Also, it was only 89 cents(!).
