Cheesy Bean & Rice Burrito

Taco Bell is probably every Indian person’s favorite fast food place. I have eaten way too much taco bell this pregnancy. I swear my baby may be made out of cheesy bean & rice LOL! If y’all haven’t had Taco Bell’s Cheesy Bean & Rice Burrito, you haven’t lived yet. Not to worry though, I’ve got you covered!!! This is my go to order at TB! So I had to make it at home so I can really see what’s going in my food. It’s basically a layered burrito with the ingredients being in the name: cheese, beans, and rice. And then of course grilled to perfection. Best part: If you have leftovers, make a quesadilla with all the ingredients the next day!

Hubby said it taste just like the taco bell one, which was a huge compliment. He is my biggest critic, so if he doesn’t approve a recipe it usually never goes up on the blog. I have many more homemade TB recipes coming your way, so stay tuned! Also please share your feedback and tag me when you make this @zheelicious 🙂

  • You can find taco bell sauce at Wal-mart!
  • I use Old El Paso brand re-fried beans; make sure you get the vegetarian kind.
  • I used McCormick’s or Old El Paso brand taco seasoning.
  • You can make the creamy jalapeño sauce with Greek yogurt to make things a little healthier.
