Crisp Burritos Return to Green Burrito Menu, Look Reasonably Crispy


Green Burrito, which can be found at Carl’s Jr. stores, has brought back their Crisp Burritos this week. Remember Green Burrito? There’s usually a menu attached somewhere to the side at most Carl’s stores. Hardee’s has the Red Burritos.

The fried crisp burritos are filled with seasoned ground beef, shredded cheddar cheese and jalapeños. They’re rolled together with a flour tortilla and “crisped” until golden brown. We’d like to know what the heck “crisping” entails.

The burritos are served with taco sauce or if you’re feeling a little adventurous, a side of guacamole for an additional charge. They’re available in a two-piece set for $2.59 and a four-piece for $4.59, as well as part of a combo meal at all participating Carl’s Jr. Green Burrito locations. Prices may vary depending on location.

Carl’s Jr. Enchilada Turkey Burger

During a recent late night coding binge, Rudy and I decided that we would attempt to benefit from the fusion of the local Green Burrito + Carl’s Jr. joint unit a few streets down from the office. With the launch of the chain’s new Guacamole Turkey Burgers, Rudy figured it could use a deeper level of flavors by topping it with a layer of Chicken & Cheese Enchiladas and a sprinkle of jalapeños from the salsa bar.

So much for the health aspect once promised by the under-500 calorie Turkey Burger menu. The result of our efforts? An unofficial Enchilada Turkey Burger. Here’s a look at the 1,000 calorie process:
