There’s a lot of the sauce in here, which is definitely not a bad thing, per se. It’s spicy, and the unique formula they use jives with the meat, rice, and cheese in a way that regular Huy Fong Sriracha probably wouldn’t. Also, it isn’t crazily salty! Wow!
While I wouldn’t call the flavors here nuanced, there is a harmony achieved between the (thin, but not too thin) layer of cheese and the generous helping of Sriracha sauce. Granted, everything else takes a back seat, but with those two driving the minivan, this is one family road trip I’ll actively try not to sabotage.
Taco Bell’s Sriracha sauce is featured in a lot of other menu items now (you can get it on just about anything), but I think that it’s really met its match in the Quesarito. In any other case, the amount of this condiment that T-Bell employees are instructed to use would be overwhelming, but with the bold levels of cheese and starch already present in the Quesarito, it balances out quite nicely.
