(PNS reporting from CHICAGO) Cheesy burrito fans and hashtag activists, your prayers have been answered! Taco Bell will debut a new menu item Monday – the Verso-Quesarito-Burrito, a burrito wrapped in a quesadilla with Mexican poetry written on the tortilla.
The VQB is a ground “beef” burrito with rice, chipotle sauce and reduced-fat sour cream in a grilled quesadilla full of melted American cheese.
You can also order the quesadilla-burrito hybrid with shredded chicken or steak. As an added bonus, the Verso-Quesarito-Burrito will feature poems written on the tortilla by Mexican day laborers. They’ll be versifying using only gluten-free ink, of course (photo.)
Talk about progressive!
“We’re constantly hearing stories from beaners who are pissed off about their lack of visibility on fast food marketing and packaging, so we wanted make a change. Take that Chipotle!” Rick Bayless, Taco Bell’s chief marketing officer and head chef, said in a press release.
Previously, a quesarito was an off-menu item you could sometimes get at Rick Bayless’ house but only if he was willing to ask his devious maid to prepare it for you.
“It’s time to ‘Live Mas’ my friends!” Bayless said. “These quesaritos are game changers, and this verso, from a a poet/day-laborer named Pablo, is especial! We have never served burritos that taste good — but we CAN offer burritos with good taste!”
