Check Out Taco Bell’s Latest Menu Items!
By Cooking Panda
I almost can’t keep up with Taco Bell’s menu; the rate at which they add to it is almost too much. Almost. Luckily, this world is full of cheese and tortilla fans, so it only makes sense that they’re always coming up with crunchy, cheesy new items.
The latest is a mashup of the Doritos Locos Taco and the Quesalupa. Brand Eating reports that this creation, along with two other new menu items, will be testing March 2017 in three different markets.
The Doritos Quesalupa Crunch (sounds good already) will be testing in Cincinnati. It bears similarities to the Gordita Crunch, in that it has a shell inside of a shell. The difference is that this particular shell combination is special. The crunchy shell on the inside is that of a Nacho Cheese Doritos Loco Taco, with the outside, softer shell being that of a Quesalupa. Then the two shells are lovingly stuck to one another by a layer of nacho cheese. Is there anything better?
The next new treat is the Chicken Enchilada Burrito, available for testing in Flint, Michigan. It should be expected to taste like an enchilada, even though it looks like a burrito. Think of it as a traveling enchilada. It features two chicken taquitos wrapped in a layer of seasoned rice, your choice of red sauce or nacho cheese (cheese, please!), sour cream and Taco Bell’s three cheese blend, rolled up all snug in a tortilla shell — burrito form.
Last but not least is the Caesar Crunchwrap. Its market will be Nashville, Tennessee, and the name really says it all. Think Caesar salad served Crunchwrap-style. Inside the tortilla is your choice of protein (chicken or steak), parmesan, crispy corn strips, Romaine lettuce, Caesar dressing, the three cheese blend and tomatoes. Just like your regular Caesar salad … except I don’t usually make mine with tomatoes, so that’s a little different. Also different is an added green chili flavor to the dressing. Taco Bell, you do you.
The Doritos Quesalupa Crunch is $3.49 in Cincinnati, and available through April 8, while the other two items are $2.99 in their respective markets, or $5 in dinner box form.chalupa, Chicken Enchilada Burrito, Crunch Wrap, Doritos Locos Taco, Quesalupa, taco bell
