Taquitos…baked tacos, burritos.
Or whatever the hell you want to call these things. Shit, call them soft nachos. What’s the difference, really? It’s all tortillas with a bunch of shit thrown in there. Well, I mean you have to care about what you throw in there. But you get my point. These in particular happen to be the epitome of my favorite Taco Bell thing-y.
It all started about 1992…
There I was, 10th grade. Summer school. Yeah, I was quite the go-getter. Don’t judge.
We would go down Columbiana Road during our lunch break. Now, granted the kids with cars that we rode with had very limited gas; but we still made it there and back, and shit, $0.59 fit the bill. AND, at 11 grams of fat, it was perfect. Yes, I counted fat grams then. I have no idea why other than my jeans felt tight and it was the thing to do when you’re 16 years old.
I don’t think they’re that cheap now, but that’s when I grew to love me some bean burritos. I LOVE them.
Ok, so these are a little different – they’re little baked taquitos – and I made a Guacamole Ranch to dip them in, which is SOOOOO good. And food at home is so much better, right??
