Quesarito

I've never been a burrito guy. One big reason is because my burrito ends up being a tidier, wrapped up taco. I've never been a guy who wants his mexican meat sleeve stuffed with rice and beans and who knows what else - so I usually stick to the taco, or even better - the quesadilla.

Quesadilla!

Like a taco smushed into pizza form. Many quesadillas, including those at taco bell, include a particular sauce that sets the quesadilla apart from a normal taco. I love that sauce. I am a quesadilla man through and through.

When I was asked to do a guest review for the Taco King, I was honored. But when I learned that my only options were burritos, I was troubled! I don't eat burritos! However, I didn't want to disappoint the Taco King, so I went with the obvious choice - the Quesarito. It's a burrito, but the shell is a cheese quesadilla.

Holy smokes.

I had to prepare myself both mentally and physically for the Quesarito. After all, it's 650 calories of cheesy, meaty death-love. On the day of the Quesarito, I had a small breakfast and a normal lunch. I wanted to make sure I had a Quesarito-sized hole to fill. I sat around, watching the clock tick by - and after what seemed like forever, it was finally time.

I hopped in the car and drove on over to the nearest Taco Bell Drive-Thru. A nice lady asked me what I wanted to order.

"A Beef Quesarito, please!", I said in reply.

"Will that be it?", she asked.

Hmmm. No - I needed something to drink.

"I'll take a Diet Baja Blast, no ice please?. (I had already had the Diet Baja Blast before- it's not really Baja Blast, but it's something.)

After waiting just a couple minutes, I had my piping-hot Beef Quesarito. I pulled into the parking lot and took a swig of the Diet Baja Blast. (Tastes weird - trust me.) I pulled the foil-wrapped Quesarito from the plastic bag. As I unwrapped it, the smell of meats, cheeses, and sauces wafted throughout the car. Finally, there it was - sitting in my lap was the warm, flour-shell meatcheesesauce bomb.

I took a bite. I could instantly taste the familiar Quesadilla flavors, but the layers of rice and beef made it a new experience altogether. It was spicier than I had predicted, so I kept going on the Diet Baja Blast, even though it felt wrong. In about 4 or 5 savory bites, I had made it to the halfway point of the Quesarito, where I had planned to stop. Sure, the experience was over - but the memories will last a lifetime.

Looking back - the Quesarito has way too much going on. Do you need a quesadilla wrapped around a burrito? No, you don't. But maybe you want it, and you can count on Taco Bell to provide it. I personally prefer my quesadilla experience to stand on its own, and for this reason I feel that the Quesarito is not equal to the sum of its parts. That being said - if you want to take it all in and shorten your lifespan by 6 to 12 years, the Quesarito is here for you.
