Taco Bell Loaded Potato Griller

tbpotatogriller.jpgI like Taco Bell for many reasons, but perhaps the primary reason is because they are always introducing new products to their menu (if only for a limited time). I picked up one of these products recently, a Loaded Potato Griller, because I had seen the commercial on TV and it seemed to be a bargain at $1.29. The Griller was actually larger than I expected it to be, making it an even better value. The grilled tortilla was filled with crispy potato bites, nacho cheese sauce, bacon, and sour cream. Although the Griller’s flavor wasn’t terribly exciting, the combination of ingredients worked and I really enjoyed eating it. The best part of the Griller wasn’t what was on the inside, however. It was the grilled tortilla. The simple step of grilling the tortilla made all the difference. It doesn’t come as a surprise to me because I know that when heating a tortilla at home, doing it over an open flame or on a griddle gives it a far superior flavor. Taco Bell would be wise to offer grilled tortillas on more of their menu items, or let customers request grilled tortillas on any item. If this were an option, I wouldn’t eat an un-grilled tortilla at Taco Bell ever again. And, I’d probably eat there more often.

i dropped by my local taco bell, and sampled the loaded potato griller, along with missus ghostmarine. the tortilla ranged from crispy (almost too crispy), to somewhat gooey. having said that, however, the fixins inside were actually tasty, and plentiful. the bacon was a good counterpoint to the potatoes, and sour cream. overall, not a bad item. i think that the next time, i have one, i'm going to ask for "easy" sour cream...too much for my taste. on the other hand, missus ghostmarine, was "thumbs up" for the product. maybe, as a suggestion for the great Gods at taco bell, is add chicken, or steak (or beef) to this one...one can hope.
and as always; semper fi.

I just tried the Buffalo chicken griller it was tasty the sauce is the volcano lava sauce so it is a little spicy with cheese sour cream and a good amount of chicken, which was juicy and flavorful. I recommend you all try the buffalo chicken griller I think you get more than what you pay.
