Taco Bell Goes Off the Deep End With New Cheetos-Stuffed Burritos

Taco Bell Goes Off the Deep End With New Cheetos-Stuffed Burritos

Taco Bell is testing out Cheetos-stuffed burritos and will begin selling them nationwide this August for just $1 each

We could always use more orange dust-coated Mexican fast food in our lives.

The latest trending ingredient that’s popping up on fast food menus is — weirdly enough — Cheetos. That crunchy, synthetic orange snack will now be appearing in Taco Bell burritos, and will be sold in participating Taco Bell locations nationwide this August for $1 each, according to Foodbeast.

The announcement comes right on the heels of Taco Bell Canada’s Beefy Cheddar Cheetos Crunchwrap Sliders and Supreme Cheetos Crunchwrap Sliders with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. This version won’t be flamin’ though. Burger King has also announced a mac and Cheetos burger to satisfy your comfort junk food cravings.

But will this crunchy combination work? Or will you end up with a soggy orange mess? Only time (and hangry fans) will tell.

“People criticize burritos, saying, ‘Oh, burritos are an American invention. Flour tortillas are not eaten by Mexicans,’” says Pati Jinich, Mexican food writer and host of the James Beard Award-winning series Pati’s Mexican Table. “But that couldn’t be further from the truth.” So allow me to begin by making an important clarification: burritos originated in Mexico.

Burritos aren’t just Mexican in origin they’re probably tacos as well. That’s according to Texas Monthly taco editor (and author of the Serious Eats guide to American taco styles) José Ralat, who famously declared burritos a type of taco in 2019, drawing on the work of Mexican food historians Martha Chapa and Alejandro Escalante. Ralat stirred up a fierce Twitter battle but, more importantly, by contextualizing burritos in this way, he also clarified the way they fit within the canon of Mexican cuisine.

“Whether people argue that the Mexican states of Sonora or Chihuahua are the birthplace of the burrito, the fact is, the food named after a small donkey is from northern Mexico,” says Ralat. “The burritos of both Mexican states share one thing: an affinity for a single guiso, a filling, with an optional schmear of refried beans. But the common denominator is the tortilla: a flour tortilla.”
