Taco Bell chili cheese burritos

If you grew up in the 90s and younlived taco bell you probably remember the yummy chili cheese burritos. If you dont remember this was a treat, cheesy and gooey you almost needed a spork to eat it. It was a burrito filled with chili and lots of melted cheese and the beat thing is it was cheap!

Chili cheese burrito 🌯 would make its appearance and then woukd disappear from my local taco bell… but when we would travel out of state I would always run to taco bell to see if maybe they would have chili cheese burritos. Sometimes I woukd get lucky other times I would have to settle for another favorite item

I was at a friend’s house when I tasted the secret ingredient to this recipe

I thought immediately of the long lost chili cheese burrito.

I started looking up copy cat recipes and sure enough it was the main ingredient so here are the next best thing if younare a chili cheese burrito fan and your taco bell has discontinued them, you can make your own!!!

Here is ehat you will need


  • Burrito tortillas
  • Cheese
  • Can of armor hot dog chili with no beans
  • Hot sauce of you wish
  • Taco seasoning


  • Empty the chili into a small saucepan and heat on low(so not to scorch)
  • Add packet of taco seasoning
  • Stir and cook thoroughly being to a soft boil
  • Warm your tortillas up by placing in between two damp paper towels
  • Add 2 tablespoons of the chili to the middle of the burrito shell
  • Add .5-1 cup of cheese… the more cheese rhe better
  • If you wish to add a dash of your favorite hot sauce do thst now on top of the cheese
  • Now fold the two ends up and roll burritos as tight as you can
