Taco Bell's new XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito takes a kitchen sink approach to big burrito making, probably featuring most available Taco Bell ingredients with their largest burrito thus far filled with seasoned beef, a three cheese blend (cheddar, pepper jack, and mozzarella), seasoned rice, refried beans, reduced-fat sour cream, guacamole, avocado ranch, and fiesta salsa wrapped in a flour tortilla and grilled.

The burrito is priced at $3.99 at my local Taco Bell. It's also available with chicken for $4.79 and steak for $4.99.

For the money, you get a sizable meal; good enough for two meals for a light eater like myself. It's not the biggest burrito I've ever gotten but still a good size. I'd be more impressed if they managed to wrap it in such a way that it feels "stuft."
There's a little bit of something for everyone in the XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito but the distribution throughout the burrito was a fair bit uneven in mine. There was surprisingly plenty of guac but it was a one-note guac with avocado providing the note. I was expecting more flavor from onions, tomatoes, lime juice and what not but I seeing as avocado is the most expensive ingredient in guacamole, at least I was getting good value.

Along with the guacamole, the fiesta salsa provided a good deal of flavor with a little bit of a kick to boot.
For one half of the burrito, I found myself wanting more beans and cheese. For the second half, I got the beans but not enough cheese still. I wouldn't say the mixture of ingredients had quite the abundance of seasoned beef that I was expecting.

Overall, the blend of flavors for the XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito just isn't my favorite flavor blend. I much preferred the last XXL offering, the XXL Chalupa.
