Review: Taco Bell - Steak & Potato Boss Wrap

Taco Bell's Steak and Potato Boss Wrap features a double portion of grilled steak, crispy Fiesta Potatoes, chipotle sauce, reduced fat sour cream, bacon, 3-cheese blend, and a crispy tostada shell, wrapped with a hexagonal fold inside a flour tortilla and grilled.

I picked one up for $4.99.

There's nothing new here in the way of ingredients but there's some novelty in the combination, particularly with the potatoes and grilled steak.


While I've never had Fiesta Potatoes that were actually crispy, the potato goes well with the seasoned steak. The steak wasn't quite juicy nor tender but offered a properly meaty texture and beefy flavor.

The chipotle sauce featured fairly prominently with a creamy smokiness and a nice hit of spicy heat. The bacon augmented the smokiness with some extra salt but like the potatoes, delivered little in the way of crispiness. Fortunately, the tostada kept some of its crunchiness (less so, the longer you wait to eat the Boss Wrap).

The cheese and sour cream seemed to stand out more than usual with more than just the generic creaminess.

Overall, Taco Bell's Steak and Potato Boss Wrap was pretty nice. I particularly liked the beef and potato combo and the smoky heat of the chipotle sauce but also enjoyed that none of the ingredients got overwhelmed by the others. I could use some more crispy bits though.
