Review: Taco Bell - Beefy Cheesy Burrito

Taco Bell's Beefy Cheesy Burrito is one of the new items on their $1 Cravings value menu test. The burrito features premium "Latin rice," seasoned ground beef, and nacho cheese.

I'm not sure this needs to be said (since it's on the $1 menu), but it costs a buck.

I think Taco Bell is running out of names for their new (more like slightly different) stuff, "Beefy Cheesy Burrito" could be easily mistaken with "Cheesy Double Beefy Burrito" or "Beefy Melt Burrito."

I know quite a few of you miss the old seasoned rice which drew on tomato and spices for flavor whereas the new rice relies on herbs like cilantro (a polarizing herb but it works well for Chipotle) and parsley. I like the new rice though. While the old rice was similar to Taco Bell's seasoned beef, the new rice has a contrasting taste that adds more variety, but still pairs well with the beef. Combined with the oozing nacho cheese, the three ingredients were well-balanced and combined for some tasty eats.

I enjoyed Taco Bell's Beefy Cheesy Burrito quite a bit and it delivers great value at $1. Cheese, beef, and rice... What's not to like?

  1. These are definitely great for the price... with the cost of food going up so much lately, Taco Bell continues to deliver some pretty good values.

  2. I get tired of the same old stuff in a different alignment.. bring back the Bell Beefer! They could do that now since their motto is no longer "Think outside the bun".

  3. The new rice is disgusting. My whole family hates Cilantro and we sickened when we ordered there earlier this week. We will not be returning unless the old rice is brought back.

  4. It was great, I love the chips inside give it a boom!

  5. This is what turned my boyfriend on to taco bell. He's a picky eater and hardly ever tries new things. Now he orders many things off the menu and he used to say taco bell wasn't for him.
