I miss Taco Bell for so many yrs now and just wen they opened in India (Bangalore) i had to move here and surprisingly there is no sight of it anywhere in the UK! altho m sure the indian version wud b indo-mexican for sure, still waitin to get bak n try it! Mexican food is not something u fall in love with at first sight/taste, in fact the first time i stepped into a taco bell i hated it! it takes a lot of gettin used to esp for the indian palate, but hell i wud die to find a mex restaurant nearby anytime now.. n brat loves it too, so almost every other day we have either tacos or bean burritos for dinner.. (yes its exceptionaly easy to make too :P)! Anyways without further blah, here is our all time favourite potato burrito made with typical taco-bell style cheesy fiesta potatoes, right at home!
Taco-Bell-Style Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes Burrito Recipe
Flour Tortillas – 3 or 4 (Can use wheat too)
Nacho Cheese Sauce – 1/2 cup (velveeta/cheddar or any other cheese you prefer)
Potatoes – 2 medium sized
Tomatoes – 2 medium sized
Lettuce – handful (optional)
Onion- 1 small sized – better with spring/green onions (optional)
Garlic powder – 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder – 1/2 tsp
Paprika – 1/2 tsp
Salsa – 4 to 5 tbsp
Sour Cream – 4 to 5 tbsp
Butter – 1 tbsp
Olive oil – 2 to 3 tsp
Salt and pepper to taste
Peel and cube the potatoes, toss along with oil, garlic and cumin powders.
Bake in a preheated oven or microwave for about 10 minutes.
In a pan, add oil and butter and fry the half-cooked potatoes along with paprika, salt and pepper.
Melt the cheese in microwave/ conventional oven.
Dice the tomatoes, chop the lettuce and onions.
Heat the tortilla on a flat-bottom pan, fill in with the potatoes, melted cheese, salsa, tomatoes, lettuce and onions and finally the sour cream, and roll into a burrito.
If you feeling greedy, you may add some refried beans too!
