Review: Del Taco - Huevos Rancheros Epic Burrito

Del Taco's Huevos Rancheros Epic Burrito weighs in and over a pound and consists of grilled chorizo sausage, scrambled eggs, pinto beans, roasted chile salsa, sliced avocado, grated cheddar cheese, and sour cream, double-wrapped in two warm corn tortillas as well as an oversized, warm flour tortilla.

The breakfast burrito normally goes for $4.99 but I received this one courtesy of Del Taco.

The very hefty burrito was fairly tightly packed with a good amount of fluffy egg as well as chorizo sausage, which added more of a Mexican spiced profile compared to regular fast food breakfast sausage.

The salsa and the sour cream offered a tanginess to the burrito that was blunted by the rich butteriness of the avocado and the earthiness of the soft beans, as well as by the eggs and tortillas.

There was a core of shredded melted cheddar in the middle but it was fairly thin and I found myself wishing for a lot more of it.

The corn tortillas didn't contribute much and I only noticed the extra flavor occasionally. Mostly it just felt like there was too much tortilla going around.

When it comes down to it, the Del Taco Huevos Rancheros Epic Burrito makes for a nice breakfast burrito, especially if you have a big appetite (or like to save some of it for later). The chorizo sausage and avocado stood out for me but are also available in Del Taco's other breakfast offerings. The corn tortillas didn't really work for me.
