Taco Bell XXL Steak Nachos

TBXXLnachos.jpgTaco Bell is bringing out the ďXXLĒ label again, this time with the XXL Steak Nachos. Taco Bellís nacho offerings have always been on the small side, more of a snack than a meal. With the XXL Steak Nachos, you probably wonít have to order anything else to get a full belly. The container that the nachos are served in is impressive. Itís about a foot long and around seven inches wide. Inside, youíll find tortilla chips covered with refried beans, cheese, nacho cheese sauce, steak, reduced-fat sour cream, guacamole, and pico de gallo. The flavors were what Iíve come to expect from Taco Bell; thereís nothing new here. The nachos contained a fairly generous amount of steak, which was juicy and had a good flavor. The weak link here is the reduced-fat sour cream. It tastes like, well, reduced-fat sour cream. I donít think anyone who is eating the XXL Steak Nachos is really watching their caloric intake very closely, so Taco Bell should just use regular (high fat) sour cream and make the XXL Nachos taste better. At $5.99, I think the XXL Steak Nachos are at least a dollar overpriced, even considering the portion size. Youíll have to decide if a big pile of nachos is worth this price.
