Review: Taco Bell - Chicken Enchilada Grilled Stuft Burrito

Taco Bell's limited-time Chicken Enchilada Grilled Stuft Burrito consists of marinated white meat chicken, enchilada sauce, a three cheese blend (cheddar, pepper jack, and mozzarella), enchilada rice and reduced fat sour cream wrapped in a flour tortilla and pressed to a crisp finish. They're priced at $3.29 each.

The Chicken Enchilada Grilled Stuft Burrito promises a just a little more novelty than the typical limited-time Taco Bell reformulation using existing menu ingredients. Not because it uses new ingredients, but because it offers enchilada flavor that can only be found on the Taco Bell menu with the Enchirito (an "amalgam of burrito" and "enchilada").

Unfortunately, the Chicken Enchilada Grilled Stuft Burrito doesn't quite deliver on that promise, at least mine didn't. When I think of enchiladas, I think of two things: lots of cheese and lots of red sauce. The Chicken Enchilada just didn't have enough of either to make me think "enchilada!" While it wasn't unpleasant to consume, while chewing, I kept thinking that I want more flavors.

While part of this was due to the under-abundance of cheese and red sauce, part of it was due to uneven distribution of ingredients; a common problem at Taco Bell especially with burritos. Half of my burrito had too much sour cream and the other half was mostly enchilada rice (which is like their seasoned rice but a bit moister and saltier). There was an fair distribution of chicken but the flavor was overpowered by the sour cream on one half and the rice on the other.

On the plus side, I've always liked the crispness of Taco Bell's Grilled Stuft Burrito line; it's a thin layer that just adds a bit more variety. While I wouldn't say the burrito was stuffed with ingredients, it was still quite a bit of food especially for the price. But overall, the Chicken Enchilada was just okay for me but could have been a lot better.

  2. Exactly my response after trying one just minutes ago. "Where's the enchilada sauce?" was the thought that kept going through my head. I didn't see any at all in my burrito. It was pretty bland and flavorless, especially for the $4.39 price tag here in Anchorage, Alaska.

    I searched Google for a review to see if it was supposed to have some. Your review is in the #1 spot on Google when searching for "taco cell chicken enchilada grilled stuft burrito," so hopefully Taco Bell is listening to your review.

    I'm not super likely to order it again, though if I do, next time I'll be sure to ask for extra enchilada sauce.

    The Grilled Stuft Steak Burrito (with extra Baja sauce) is my favorite thing on the menu. :)

  3. Haha, but they would require that they make something out of ingredients that they don't already have on hand!

  4. The enchilada rice actually has nacho chips in it. That and the fact that there is half as much seasoning in are the only differences.

    Enchiladas dont have cheese, dumb ass. Search about mexican food before you make a comment.

  6. A chicken burrito with enchilada sauce = practically the same thing for $1.29 :D

    Or even better: chicken burrito with lava sauce. (!)
