Review: Taco Bell - Tostada

Taco Bell Tostada
Taco Bell's Tostada is not listed on their online menu so it might not be available at all Taco Bell restaurants. It features a meatless concoction of a tostada shell (basically a flattened taco shell) spread with a layer of refried beans and then topped with red sauce, shredded cheese, and lettuce. It costs $1.29 for one.

Like most menu items at Taco Bell, the Tostada tastes the same, but a little different. It has the crunch, lettuce, and cheese of a Crunchy Taco, but pairs it with the beans and red sauce more commonly associated with the better known Mexican Pizza.
Taco Bell Tostada out of the box
For the most part, it tastes like a Taco Bell Crunchy Taco, but with beans and a squirt of hot sauce. If you like refried beans, there's plenty of.

Taco Bell's Tostada is a nice change for when you feel like something crunchy, but would rather have the taste and texture of refried beans over seasoned beef.

  1. I love these, but they don't make them anymore.  It sucks.

  2. OH!  And they used to put sour cream and black olives on them when I was a kid...what happend to that?

  3. Haha, actually I think it got tilted on its side as I was carrying it in the house.

  4. It looks to me like the employee got a bit sloppy in making yours.
