Review: Taco Bell - Cheesy Bean & Rice Burrito

Taco Bell's Cheesy Bean & Rice Burrito comes off from their $1 Cravings value menu test and features nacho cheese, refried beans, and seasoned rice wrapped up in a flour tortilla.

It costs $1 and is listed as a "Cheesy" craving.

This one is very similar to the Beefy Cheesy Burrito I wrote about earlier, but with a different flavor component with the beans instead of seasoned ground beef.

The beans add an earthiness over the more seasoned flavor of the ground beef. It's a plainer flavor that allows the rice and cheese to shine a little bit more. They're both nice, but the beef stands alone better; I remember I didn't like the Bean Burrito too much.

The Cheesy Bean & Rice Burrito is a much better product over the Bean Burrito. There's three different textures going on inside: the melty cheese sauce, the gooey bean paste, and the soft grainy rice. More importantly, there are three distinct flavors going on where I found the Bean Burrito to taste mostly like bean and not much else.

Overall, the Cheesy Bean & Rice Burrito is a solid value burrito with a good amount of flavor and enough variety to keep it interesting.
