Taco Bell’s Grilled Stuffed Burrito: Recipe Sunday

I am kicking myself right now. I made this last week and took some awesome photos of it. And then I deleted them without saving them to my computer. So instead, here’s an image of the original from Taco bell, the XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito:

The XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito from Taco Bell

I set out to make my own because 1)Taco Bell uses some weird mystery meat, 2)I don’t like driving across town for fast food, and 3)because I believe that I should be able to make any dish that I enjoy eating.

According to the Taco Bell website, the grilled stuffed burrito contains:

The XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito is our biggest burrito yet, STUFT full of our seasoned beef, a three cheese blend, flavorful seasoned rice, hearty beans, reduced-fat sour cream, chunky guacamole, avocado ranch and fiesta salsa, wrapped up in a warm flour tortilla.

I can do that. These did come out pretty awesome. They looked just like what you buy from Taco Bell and tasted pretty close. In my mind, they tasted better.

    It is not “mystery meat”, it is ACTUAL beef. The chicken and steak are also real!
