Guy Stuff – Taco Bell Chilito At Home

Posted on Thursday, January 3, 2013 in Guy Stuff

Untitled-1Guy Stuff – Taco Bell Chilito At Home

Today we have one of my favorite Fast Food meals, that has been gone for quite a while, the Chilito! As a kid I worked summers at Taco Bell in the 80′s, and back then they really had some awesome stuff – unlike today. Kids today might think Taco Bell is great, but back then – it was AWESOME! The Chilito was a cheesy chili burrito, a little smaller than the Burrito Supreme, in a thicker tortilla that was steamed. I’ll never forgive them for taking it off the menu :( At least I can make them *almost* as good anytime I want to at home, and now I’ll share how with you :)

This also makes for the best tortilla dip you’ve ever had :)

    That looks pretty good but can I make 1 suggestion? Don’t use flower plates during “guy stuff”. lol

      There is no such thing…

    Do you think for the vids that involve ingredients, can you put a brief ingredient list to paste into our shopping lists? Don’t have to go into as much detail with the ingredients as you do in the video, but it would be easier than typing everything in as I watch the video.

    (Unless you give a link to it at the end, not through the video yet… I just watch a ton of homebrewer stuff and I like when they put ingredient lists in the comments or reference them somewhere else where you can paste them out of)

      Yeah I’ll start doing that! This is just a rolling series, I didn’t (and still don’t) know where it’s going so I’m making it up as we go along :) Thanks for the feedback. I just bought ingredients for the next video tonight, so I’ll throw in a list with the post next week!

    They actually still have this in my area, Northern Indiana. It’s called a chili cheese burrito. I get one every time I have a drunk night! Fantastic drunk food.

    40 now, been enjoying chilitos since I was about 12. I recall originally getting them at a place called ZANTIGOS in Cincy. BTW, chili-cheese-burritos are still on every TB menu in Cincy. Just had a few last weekend. Have officially introduced them to my 10 yr old. FAMILY TRADITIONS!!!!

    This looks absolutly amazing. I wish taco bell still mede these, would love to try them. But thanks for sharing how to make a similar item, I’ll try making it sometime.

    Thanks for the recipe Bryan. My wife and I had chilitos tonight and they were amazing. I haven’t had a chilito in years and that was just the way they should be. My wife and I aren’t very large people and we ate 10, I think that’s enough said lol. No cigar tonight, after that I think it’s time to go to bed and probably slip into a coma. Thanks again for the recipe!
