Taco Bell Beefy Nacho Burrito

rsz_1po4ckvxaww.jpgEver since Taco Bell decided to snatch away the Beefy Crunch Burrito from their menu, a huge void has been left deep within my soul. Apparently the fast food company sought to ease the pain a little by recently introducing the Beefy Nacho Burrito. Was it going to be as good as its predecessor? To be honest my expectations were quite low. However, I was pleasantly surprised as soon as I sunk my teeth in for the first bite. The tortilla strips actually had some crunch to them and there was a substantial amount of nacho cheese. The ground beef was rich and seasoned just right, while the sour cream added a nice hint of tanginess. It was almost as if I was eating a plate of nachos, both taste and texture-wise. If you've had the Beefy Crunch Burrito before, you ought to know exactly what to expect. Although Taco Bell is obviously retreading old ground here, this will be just enough to tide me over until they pry it from my hands at the end of this limited time promotion. Now if only this or its older brother could stay on the menu for good...

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

I can't stand how taco bell adds sour cream to ALL new menu items! I find it disgusting, and unfortunately the people working there are frequently not competent enough to follow my instructions to omit it.

PepsiCo is just trying to another Frito-Lay product into each product launch. The product is average or even less if you had it more than once. It is mot good.

I finally got around to trying this today (minus the sour cream) and I just found it to be far too salty. The strips seemed to be Dorito flavored, so they really added to the saltiness which is already pretty high from the meat and the cheese. Just too salty for me, plus I think I just don't like the idea of chips in a burrito. If I want crunch I'll add onions and/or lettuce ;)

I always order whatever burrito they have for 99 cents and then have them make it my way. For that price its a good deal and a good taste.
