Who doesn’t love nachos wen a snack attack hits? To be honest, it’s surprising this delicious snack isn’t already on the Chipotle menu. But fear not! All you’ve got to do to order it is get a burrito bowl but sub the rice for chips. Then load up on all the toppings you can dream of and you’re good to go!

Okay, so this secret menu item might just be the worst kept secret of all. The famous off-the-menu treat is made by combining a McDouble with a McChicken. You can probably order this one at the cashier, but to avoid the embarrassing name we suggest ordering the items separately and combining them yourself!

MCDONALD’S – FULLY LOADED MCFLURRY

Okay, this one is for those of you with a sweet tooth. The ultimate dessert can be ordered from this fast food joint in the form of a fully-loaded McFlurry. Here’s what to do: swing by the drive-thru and ask for an Oreo McFlurry. Then ask for added caramel, added chocolate sauce, an apple pie on the side, and added M&Ms. Crumble up your pie and toss it in and you’re good to go! Fair warning – you may feel ill from all the sugar after this one.

MCDONALD’S – THE DOUBLE MCCHICKEN

There’s no double McChicken on the menu and we think that’s a darn shame. So create your own with this DIY recipe. All you’ve got to do is order two Junior Chickens, combine them, and you’re good to go! It’s that easy!

We don’t get In-N-Out Burger here in Canada, but Five Guys has a cool dupe. Just order up a cheeseburger with any toppings you like. Then ask for sides of mayo, ketchup, and relish. Mix the three sauces together, plop ’em on your burger, and you’re all set! It’ll taste just like the iconic animal-style treat.
