News: Taco Bell - New Smothered Burrito

Taco Bell's latest permanent menu item, the new Smothered Burrito, launches tomorrow, Thursday, July 25. The dish is an enchilada-burrito combination and is also called a "wet burrito" in some places.

The Smothered Burrito features a warm flour tortilla filled with Latin rice, refried beans, creamy chipotle sauce, and the choice of shredded chicken, seasoned beef, or steak (being Taco Bell, you can also get the regular chicken as well; it just won't be listed on the menu). The burrito is then covered in red sauce, a melted 3-cheese blend, and reduced-fat sour cream.

The beef version will be priced at $2.99, while the chicken or steak version clocks in at $3.99. You can get it in a combo with a Crunchy Taco and a drink for $2 extra.

If the name sounds familiar, the Smothered Burrito was tested last year in Dayton, Ohio.

For a little something extra, you can ask them to grill the burrito before smothering it.

  1. So... an enchirito with rice?

  2. No... A bigger Enchirito with rice! Haha...

  3. And with sour cream and chipotle sauce!

  4. We have had a Smothered Burrito for the last 13 years! Sometimes I think they just copy us.

  5. Yea but your not where I live so. LoL

  6. Tasted one of these the other day. Ugh. I grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, home of the wet burrito. This is just... wrong.

  7. I actually disliked it, although I'm not sure why. I think I thought it was too bitter. However, the barista didn't ask if I wanted cream.

  8. Chica----Michigan is NOT the home of ANY Mexican food!

  9. Home of the wet burrito... pffft. Must be a MU grad.
