This copycat of Taco Bell’s Quesarito is way better plus you can make this at the comfort of your home anytime. If you love burritos, I am pretty sure that you’ll dig this bad boy.
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
Freshly ground black pepper
2 cups cooked white rice
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
TO ASSEMBLE QUESARITO:
8 large flour tortillas
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar
1 cup Nacho Cheese Sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
How to make Quesarito
Step 1: Cook the beef in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chilli powder, cumin, and paprika, and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 6 minutes or until the beef until not anymore pink. When done, drain excess fat.
Step 2: Place the white rice, lime juice, and cilantro in a medium bowl. With a fox, mix them well to make cilantro-lime rice and set aside.
Step 3: To make the quesadillas, heat over medium-high heat a large nonstick pan. Add the tortillas into the heated pan and sprinkle over the cheddar cheese. Top with another flour tortilla and continue to cook for about 2 minutes on each side until the cheese has melted. Do the same for the rest of the tortillas.
Step 4: To assemble, place one tortilla on a cutting board or plate and add some rice, meat, nacho cheese sauce, and sour cream on top. Roll the tortilla like a burrito. Do this for the rest.
Step 5: Cook two Quesaritos in a heated nonstick pan over medium-high heat for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side until golden and slightly crispy.
Step 6: Serve the Quesarito immediately.
