Taco Bell's new XXL Steak Nachos is a massive plate of nachos roughly twice the size of their Nachos BellGrande. On the plate, you can expect to find: plenty of tortilla chips, 4.5 ounces of their revamped steak, nacho cheese sauce, melted cheese blend, guacamole, refried beans, pico de gallo, and reduced fat sour cream.
I picked an order up for $5.99.
With a plate this size, the XXL Steak Nachos is great for sharing with one or two friends. The length of the plate ensures that you're not crowding each other to get at it.
The key differences between this and Taco Bell's regular nachos are the addition of pico de gallo instead of just plain diced tomatoes, and a scoop of guacamole. The pico de gallo is a bit more lively than tomatoes, and the guac is always good with chips.
I wish there were more cheese on the nachos. Cheese is a nacho essential and there wasn't enough of it in my order. I ended eating some chips with just guacamole or salsa, which is nice, but not very nacho-like.
For around the same price, I can get a better plate (with more meat and cheese) at my favorite nachos place. But my favorite nachos place is 20 minutes away and Taco Bell is oh so close and convenient.
