Copying Taco Bell recipes [split from Taco Bell Pre-90s Was Good thread on Chains]

Hey hounddogz... It can be brought back. People today must make noise. The way to do it, is to show the younger generation how Taco Bell today is not as good tasting as they think. This is done by making the same dishes at home. How? Like this:
Use refried beans from a can, add some lard to it with a little water in a pot on the stove and heat and mix to the consistency you like, next get your own fresh tomatoes and chop them up, next get regular (normal full fat) sour cream, next get and shred fresh iceberg lettuce, next get some vidalia or spanish sweet white onion, next get fine shredded Monterey jack and mild cheddar blend from a package, next get sliced black olives from a can and drain liquid, next get fresh green onions and chop them up into 1/4" long pieces, next get flour tortillas, next get Snyders White Corn Tortilla Chips, next get Taco shells like Ortega brand, next get normal/regular/traditional fat-meat ratio 100% ground beef and add the taco seasoning packet/s according to directions, some water and DO NOT DRAIN the fat! -cook and mash to flavor and reduce size of pieces of meat, next get some red enchilada sauce, next make the nacho cheese sauce like the recipe on http://cooklikeyourgrandmother.com/20... website, next buy real guacamole such as the refrigerated Calavo brand guacamole, next assemble the ingredients in the proper way for the items you are duplicating. To make a mexican pizza flat shell, you just deep fry a flour tortilla in lard until it bubbles and crisps. You can make the bean burritos, burrito supremes, nachos belgrandes, tacos, mexican pizzas, and some other favorites like the Taco Salad if you get a flowered shape stainless steel form to deep fry the large flour tortilla in the lard to make the bowl. For the salsa? Just dice fresh tomatoes, dice green bell peppers, dice sweet white onion, and chop up fresh Cilantro and mix and let set, or put all into a processor and chop. If you remember the bacon cheeseburger burrito? I duplicated the sauce too, all it is - is bacon ranch dressing with a little Kraft bbq sauce added until it turns that orangy color, and then add a few more bacon bits for the chunks. Give them these fresh full fat versions of their liking and I guarantee you will win them over. Pass this to the whole country! By the way, I actually copied "Arby's Sauce" to perfection. The sauce they give you in the packets.... I also copied their red sauce that they add on the buns of the beef&cheddar and super roast beef. Took me years of trying. All recipes for these two sauces on the internet are wrong. But I copied both sauces exactly. I am what you call a supertaster, and can distinguish subtle differences in foods. Stick with me and together we will beat Taco Bell at their own game. Talk to you later...
