They took some phone photos.  I did as well, but don't have one of the quesarito: https://www.flickr.c...157653190836699

Honestly, if you could just find a way to recreate the Doritos Locos Taco . . . and I don't care how much tertiary butylhydroquinone, disodium phosphate, disodium insinuate, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, guanylate, propylene glycol alginate, xanthan gum, calcium disodium EDTA, trehalose, maltodextrin, food dyes yellow 5 & 6 and red 40, monosodium glutamate and sulfites you need to add to accomplish this culinary wonder. 

 

Thanks!

Nick, I'd totally devour that crunchwrap.      

 

You missed a chance to use queso fundido in that cheesy gordita crunch.

Nick must have scared them. Taco Bell and Pizza Hut are losing some artificial ingredients.

So, switching from MSG to "yeast extract" then.

How long will the quesarito be on the "secret menu?" That sounds like it could be pretty tasty.

You can ask for it anytime.  If they're not too busy, they'll probably make it.  Or if I'm working, I can make sure it gets done.

^^^^^

Señor Crepeguy's video(s) is called How to Make Taco Bell’s Entire Classic Menu From Home, if anyone playing at home was wondergin.

 

I can't believe I haven't seen this thread before. Brilliant! It's so very *wrong*!

 

(Now, if you'd put these on your secret menu with a meat other than ground beef -- or with black beans instead of meat -- I'd try them, Señor ExtraMSG)
