I love Taco Bell. I admit. I know it's quite unhealthy but every once in awhile I got to have a Taco Bell fix. I have to admit, I've never had the Beefy 5 Layer Burrito. One of my kids' friends orders it when we go there. So when I saw this copycat recipe, I thought of him.
I've been looking at Sarah's copycat recipes on her blog Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. She has over 60 of them!! There are several that I want to try.
This Beefy 5 Layer Burrito was a hit and tasted very similar. I think I went a little heavy with the cheese in this one but no one really complained. What restaurant meal would you like to see a copycat of?
