Chilitos for everyone!
"The Chili Cheese Burrito is the birthright of every Mexican fast-food restaurant patron. It is the ultimate fusion of zesty Mexican chili, melted cheddar cheese, and a warm, soft tortilla blanket.
You see, the Chili Cheese Burrito has the kind of home-grown American roots that define every great legend. Originally called a Chilito, this wonderful concoction was first made famous by a Midwestern fast food chain called Zantigo's. The centerpiece of their menu, the Chilito was offered with either hot and spicy green chili sauce or mild red sauce. Legend has it that this wildly popular item began a Chilito craze across the Midwest in the late 80's.
Unfortunately for Zantigo's, Taco Bell's growth in the early 90's all but wiped them from the map. To entice the locals, Taco Bell created its own Chilito, and began to market it worldwide. Zantigo's soon became but a distant memory, and a few years later Taco Bell renamed the item to the Chili Cheese Burrito. The legend had arrived.
Much like its creator though, the Chili Cheese Burrito has today been run out of most towns by bigger, flashier choices.
Let Taco Bell keep their sour cream-infused quesadillas, lettuce-filled taco salads, and salsa-covered MexiMelts. But let them hear your screams for a simple, delicious Chili Cheese Burrito."
