Review: Taco Bell - Burrito Supreme

One of Taco Bell's staple menu items, the Burrito Supreme has been available for the last two weeks or so at a promotional price of 99 cents (with today being that last day to take advantage of the offer.

It's normally priced at $2.69 at my local Taco Bell and consists of seasoned ground beef, refried beans, red sauce, shredded lettuce, cheddar cheese, diced onions, diced tomatoes and reduced-fat sour cream wrapped up in a flour tortilla.

Not many burritos tend to have lettuce inside; I think mostly because lettuce wilts and steams when placed next to the heat of the other ingredients especially enclosed in a flour tortilla. The Burrito Supreme is not exception but I still liked the variety the lettuce presented from the other Taco Bell burritos.
Everything kinda just melts together inside the Burrito Supreme which doesn't present a very pretty picture but it still tastes pretty good and the ingredients go well together. I especially liked the combo of beef, beans, and cheese. It did seem to be a bit liquid though.

Still, I enjoyed the combination of ingredients inside Taco Bell's Burrito Supreme. There are other things I like better on Taco Bell's menu but for 99 cents, it's a pretty good deal. At the normal price, I'd rather go for a more Taco Bell-exclusive items like the Mexican Pizza or Chalupa though.

  3. I enjoy the reduced fat sour cream thrown in there. If it's reduced fat, that means the other fatty ingredients are automatically canceled out, right?

  4. Actually I don't think it was very considerate of them to just unilaterally decide to stop serving the regular sour cream without even so much as a warning. I'm all for offering healthy choices on the menu or even a separate menu like the Fresco menu. But to just abruptly force a less tasty, albeit ostensibly healthier option was not cool. And as the above poster pointed out, you're not saving enough calories to balance out the other ingredients. I just get my items without sour cream now and add it home. Not the same as it being all melted in nicely as the items are made, but beats having to eat that unpleasant tasting reduced fat junk!
