Copycat Quesarito

Spicy beef, seasoned rice, cheese, and guacamole all rolled up in a cheese quesadilla!

Ingredients

1
pound ground beef
1
packet Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
1
packet Old El Paso™ heat & serve fiesta rice
16
Old El Paso™ Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for burritos
1
cup cheddar cheese, shredded
8
tablespoons sour cream
8
tablespoons prepared guacamole

Directions

  • 1 Add the ground beef to a large skillet over medium heat. Stir often to break up the meat until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  • 2 Drain the grease from the meat and stir in the packet of taco seasoning and water, as called for on the seasoning packet. Cook for 2 minutes and remove from the heat.
  • 3 While the meat is cooking, cook the rice according to package instructions.
  • 4 Lay one tortilla on a microwave-safe plate and top with a sprinkling of cheddar cheese. Top with a second tortilla. Microwave for 15 seconds or until the cheese has melted.
  • 5 Spoon a bit of rice onto the tortilla, topped with the ground beef, more cheese, sour cream, and guacamole as desired. Don’t overfill your tortillas or they’ll be difficult to close.
  • 6 Fold the ends of the tortillas up and bring the center over the filling. Roll the burritos closed.

As prepared by Buns in my Oven,

A beefy burrito wrapped up in a cheesy quesadilla! What's not to love? 

You guys have seen the commercials, right? 

The gooey cheese, the warm tortillas, the spicy beef. I’m talking about the new Quesarito, obviously.

It’s a burrito all wrapped up in a cheese quesadilla, and I am here to tell you that your life is not complete without it. My little Mexican food-loving heart darn near exploded over this one.

And bonus points: This is so super easy. You guys won’t even believe it. Let me show you!

 

Copycat Quesarito

Gather up all of your ingredients. Brown some hamburger meat and season with some Old El Paso taco seasoning. Whip up some rice. I used a box of Old El Paso Spanish Rice and it was perfect for this. The Fiesta Rice would be great too, but it was all sold out at my grocery store. Sad panda.

In addition to the cooked beef and rice, you’ll need soft tortillas, plenty of grated cheddar, and any other fillings you may like. I went for some sour cream and guacamole. I always go for the guac.

Making the cheesy quesadilla is the easy part! Just sprinkle some cheese on a tortilla, top with a second tortilla, and microwave about 15 seconds.

Die of happiness. Except not! It’s hard to eat quesaritos when you’re dead.
