Review: Taco Bell - Enchirito

The Taco Bell Enchirito is Taco Bell's rendition of the enchilada and features a soft flour tortilla wrapped around seasoned ground beef, refried beans, diced onions and then topped with melted cheddar cheese and a tangy red sauce.

It goes for $1.99 at my local Taco Bell.

It seems like the name is a blend of "enchilada" and "burrito" but I'm not sure why as its an enchilada as far as I can tell (I suppose most enchiladas I've had were made with corn tortillas I guess).
The Enchirito is probably the cheapest prepared enchilada there is and it's not too shabby. Mines lacked a little on the filling front; mostly beans, less ground beef and not an abundance of either. There was a decent amount of cheese though.

Like a lot of things at Taco Bell, the taste is familiar but the red sauce with a little tanginess and spices makes it different enough to enjoy every now and again.

  1. Holy crap, look at that sodium content!!!

  2. Whoops. I put it up wrong. It's fixed.

  3. That is not an enchirito this version is tasteless. The original version was
    wraped in a soft corn tortilla with black olive slices on top and a more
    flavorfull sauce not just a salt flavored sauce. Bring the original Enchirito
    back and it will stay on the menu.

  4. Ah... I would have loved to try the original.
