Review: Del Taco - Mini Bacon Quesadilla

Del Taco's Mini Bacon Quesadilla is part of their new Buck & Under menu and features a mini flour tortilla folded over hand-grated cheddar cheese and crispy bacon pieces and flat-grilled.

I picked one up for 75 cents, which is a quarter over the 50-cent plain Mini Cheddar Quesadilla.

Quesadilla are one of those things I don't order often because they're super easy to make at home. Still, sometimes I find myself at a restaurant and I just want one right there and then.

They aren't kidding when they call this a "mini quesadilla." It is a small snack-sized portion that might be even smaller than one of Taco Bell's mini quesadillas.

The flour tortilla was grilled to a nice, but uneven, thin and crispy brown crust.

The cheddar gives decent coverage and delivers a fairly mild flavor. Cheddar isn't so great for melting though. Blending it with some Jack would improve the melting and add more depth to the flavor. Cheese plus tortilla has always been a great combination.

The bacon was a pleasant surprise here. Del Taco's bacon delivers a good amount of smokiness and porky flavor. It wasn't abundant, but I got at least some bacon in every bite.

Overall, Del Taco Mini Bacon Quesadilla makes for an excellent cheap snack. The bacon fits in well with the cheese and the tortilla, adding a much welcomed bit of flavor.
