Taco Bell Corp. is a California-based fast service restaurant chain that specializes in Mexican style fast food. Taco Bell--with 1995 sales in the United States of $3.5 billion dollars--held the largest share of the Mexican-style restaurant market in the United States. In mid-1997 the fast food chain was owned by the giant PepsiCo empire and was expected to soon become part of the restaurant holding company TRICON Global Restaurants, Inc., a far cry from its modest beginnings as a hot dog stand.
Grilled Stuffed Chicken Burrito
GRILLED STUFFED CHICKEN BURRITO
Taco Bell Copycat Recipe
Makes 10 Burritos
3 chicken breasts
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon cumin
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
6 ounces enchilada sauce
2 cups uncooked medium grain rice
4 cups water
1/3 cup ranch dressing, depending on the size of your avocado
1 cup grated cheddar cheese, to taste
10 -16 tortillas (varies by size)
Pound out the chicken breasts until they're thin and flat. Sprinkle most of the spice mixture evenly over the chicken breasts. Make sure they're well seasoned.
Meanwhile, cook the rice in a pot or rice cooker (the latter produces better results). Once it's done, mix it with the remainder of the spices and the enchilada sauce. Grill the chicken; allow to cool and slice. Mash the avocado and mash in the ranch dressing, salt, and lime juice. Warm however many tortillas you wish to make burritos with.
To construct a burrito, lay out a tortilla and spoon on some of the avocado sauce. Spread it over the middle of the tortilla. Then spoon on a few tablespoons of the rice, followed by a sprinkling of cheddar cheese. Place the chicken on top of the cheese, add more avocado sauce to taste, and roll up the burrito. (Lime juice and salsa verde are also wonderful on this if you wish.). Microwave the final burrito for about 20 seconds just to make sure everything is warm.
