I'm pretty sure this actually was created and died in the 90's.

You can still order these. On the receipt it looks something like Chili Cheese Burrito minus beans, minus meat, plus pza sauce. If this is confusing, just tell them what it is. They run about $1.50 now. With that green onion scare last year, they no longer use scallions in anything tho.

Not on the menu but I know if your at a tacobell anywhere around Oklahoma city they are still available and cost .60 what a deal- no green onions though!

I remember when Zantigo was around in Milwaukee in the 80's when I was a kid. I loved the cheesarito. Never had a taco, burrito or anything like that - I only ate these!

They'll sell you a Cheesarito at any Minneapolis area Taco Bell-- can't recall the price, but $1.50 sounds about right. However, I was driving through Nevada last year, and the Taco Bell in Carson City had never heard of a Cheesarito, and refused to make one!

I was a vegetarian and ate these in Winona, MN while in college. I still crave them

Last time I was in Minnesota, I ordered them at the Mall of America... They actually still have them. I think the girl working at the counter was scared of how happy I was. I ordered, like, ten. I grew up on these. :)

I'm an rgm for a taco bell in Mississippi. We don't have the cheesarito here. It's a regional item and must be approved through certain areas to be sold. Up until recent we didn't even know they existed. Lol

my brother worked there and taught me how to make em. flour tortilla steamed with cheddar cheese green onion and salsa mixed with red enchilada sauce ( which is their pizza sauce)

I was told by a taco bell employee to ask for a bean burrito without the beans (!) and melt the cheese, and it would basically be a cheesarito.

I had one tonight. In Minneapolis they still make them.

To make it right its the Burrito sized Flour Tortilla, their cheese, Pizza Sauce and Green Onions and you put it in a steamer which makes it come out nice and moist. You can add Chicken to it and it is delicious. Bring it back Taco Bell

This was DEFINITELY an 80s item -- I was in and out of college by the 90s. My friends and I ate these EVERY SINGLE DAY in high school. Now, I've lived all over the midwest and west coast. Most midwest places know what they are -- west coast you have to teach, and usually they end up charging $2+ by the time they get done. Here's a tip: once you get one built right (at a good price), save that receipt and take it with you whenever you order another one.

I vaguely remember the commercials actually. I just remember some painter(s) on a ladder or what not. But I used to love those things, and I definitely do remember them......

Order a cheesy rollup plus Mexican pizza sauce. Works perfectly (minus the scallions which aren't available anymore). Add your own scallions at home.
