Let’s Get Cooking: Taco Bell Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burritos

First, marinate the steak by slicing it into strips and then into bite-sized pieces. I recommend using Lawry’s Signature Steakhouse Marinade or your preferred steak marinade. Don’t forget to add any leftover sauce from the pan you cooked the steak in.

Additionally, cook the rice ahead of time. For an authentic flavor, I suggest using boxed Mexican Rice, which adds a delightful spicy aroma and scrumptious taste. Alternatively, you can create your own version of Mexican Rice.

To enhance the flavors of this burrito, prepare a homemade Creamy Chipotle Sauce. You can find the recipe here. This versatile sauce can also be used for other dishes like Blackened Cod Fish Tacos.

Microwave the nacho cheese sauce to achieve a drizzle-like consistency, making it easier to assemble the burritos. Individual cups of nacho cheese sauce are perfect for portion control and convenient snacking.

Rolling a burrito with so many ingredients can be a bit challenging at first, but don’t worry. Let the photos serve as your guide, and remember, there are no exact measurements. Here’s how to build your burrito:

  1. Place a generous mound of cooked rice in the bottom half of a burrito-sized tortilla.
  2. Top it with the grilled marinated steak, ensuring an ample amount of steak for a flavorful bite.
  3. Add the fiesta tortilla strips for an extra crunch.
  4. Drizzle the melted nacho cheese sauce on top.
  5. Sprinkle shredded Mexican cheese for an irresistible cheesiness.
  6. Apply a generous amount of our homemade Creamy Chipotle Sauce.
  7. Finally, add dollops of sour cream for a cool and tangy touch.
  8. Fold in the sides of the tortilla, tuck in the filling, and roll tightly. Place the seam side down to secure the burrito.

Once you’ve assembled the burrito, place it seam side down in a hot skillet until golden-brown. This helps seal the edge. Remove the burrito from the pan momentarily to add an extra touch of cheese on top.

Now, here’s the exciting part: place a large handful of shredded Mexican cheese in a preheated non-stick skillet. Carefully place your burrito, seam side up, on the cheese. This will create a delightful, melted cheese topping.
