Long before launching its cheesy new Quesalupa, Taco Bell unleashed the monstrous quesadilla-burrito hybrid known as the Quesarito. And now, about two years later, the fast food chain's mashup-crazed food engineers have basically reversed the popular menu item with new burritos that feature melty cheese cores, instead of an outer later of cheese.
Taco Bell said it is currently testing the new Cheesy Core Burritos (yes, that's what they're called) in the Omaha, NE and Toledo, OH markets, with the possibility of wider national rollout sometime in the future. As seen in the photo above, the burritos come with a queso-like cheese core wrapped in a tortilla and surrounded by a layer of rice and meat and fully enclosed in another tortila. In other words, they're basically reverse Quesaritos.
Taco Bell said the Cheesy Core Burritos start at $1.99 and are served with the option of chicken, beef, or steak. A spokeswoman for the company said customer feedback in the test markets will determine whether these things will go national, but judging by the picture alone, we'll probably be eating these things for fourth meal in no time.
