Frankenfoods

In the ethos of Mexican Frankenfoods, Taco Bell no doubt, reigns [taco] supreme.

Founded in 1962 in Downey, California, the modest taco operation has grown to the tune of  2 Billion customers per year in their more than 5,800 U.S. “restaurants,” gorging on an array of “authentic” Mexican fare ranging from the Black Jack Taco to Mexican Pizza, and the Satan-approved enchilada/burrito hybrid that made many an abuelita faint, the Enchirito.

Having bastardized most of our food and failed on their two attempts to open franchises south of the border, you’d think they’d take a breather…then along came  the Beefy Crunch Burrito.

Otherwise known as the fourth meal that will make your sphincter squeal, it’s described per the chain’s official website as: “Layers of seasoned ground beef, rice, warm nacho cheese sauce, reduced fat sour cream and Flamin’ Hot® Fritos® wrapped in a warm, flour tortilla.”

Well, at 510 calories, 22 g of fat and 1,250 mg of sodium all I can say is thank God for the reduced fat sour cream.

Have health insurance and live on the edge? Then the Touchdown $5 Buck Box which includes the Britney’s tortilla-wrapped wet dream, plus a Crunchwrap Supreme, a Crunchy Taco, Cinnamon Twists and a medium fountain drink is the way to go.

It’s hard to think of what the chain will come up with next in order to keep momentum, though if it were up to YouTube user sickair08 the answer would be simple: hot sauce/burrito/fruit punch smoothies. Yum!
