Cheesy Bean & Rice Burrito

Taco bell is probably every Indian persons 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 :)

Stay happy, Stay hungry!
