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.
