Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
Today we are looking at a fast food snack that was available at the chain Taco Bueno, before we get to the item, lets talk about this restaurant first. Taco Bueno is a fast food restaurant chain that was founded in Texas. It specialises in Tex Mex cuisine and has over 140 locations in the USA including Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana and Missouri.
In June of this year, it was announced that Taco Bueno were releasing a brand new product for their restaurant – a quesadilla burger. The product was only available for a limited time and combined a variety of styles of food together. The burger could be purchased for $6.99 at stores that were participating.
So what actually is a quesadilla burger? Well is is a beef patty topped with pico de gallo, guacamole, lettuce, queso and chipotle ranch dressing which is then served in between two crisp quesadillas. You could pay a little bit extra and for $8.99 you would also get chips more queso and a fizzy drink.
