Review: Del Taco - Fiery 6 Layer Burrito

Del Taco's Fiery 6 Layer Burrito features slow-cooked beans, seasoned beef, hand-grated cheddar cheese, spicy jalapeno slices, and sour cream, wrapped in a flour tortilla with a "secret" layer of warm nacho cheese.

The burrito goes for $1.59.

The Fiery 6 Layer Burrito reminds me of Taco Bell's Beefy 5-Layer Burrito back in '10 on account of the nacho cheese in the "secret" layer. Most of the layers are the same except Del Taco's Fiery 6 Layer Burrito has spicy jalapeno slices.

However Del Taco's version contains a good even mix of ingredients without any one overshadowing the others. The beef isn't heavily flavored so I caught a good bit of the beans, sour cream, and cheese.

Be warned though, the spicy jalapeno slices add a sour bite and there was a pretty good amount of them in the burrito. None of the other ingredients were spicy.

Overall, Del Taco's Fiery 6 Layer Burrito is a pretty nice mix of ingredients that fit together quite nicely... as long as you can take the heat from the plentiful jalapenos.

  1. Do you know if Del Taco still has bits of red pepper in their nacho cheese?

  2. Honestly almost anything that's fast food that's suppose to be spicey isn't really. They tone it down so much so that everybody can enjoy it but for people that really like it spicey it's usually a let down.

  3. That's true. I think my spicy tolerance veers more towards the mainstream, so it's spicy enough for me but not overly so. But at least at the taco joints, there's always the hot sauce.

  4. I don't know but I didn't catch any in this one.

  5. Yea but what's the point of calling it Fiery if it isn't. That's the problem that I find with places these days. Now I live in Oklahoma and if you have any idea on how okies react to spicy food you'll know that usually it's mild taco sauce is what they go for cause anything else is just too hot.

    I'll go for chinese and get something that's marked as spicy and well it's not. I'm sure if I went to China and ordered something Spicy I bet you that it would be Spicy. I wish people would dumb down there food just to please the masses. If you can't enjoy it the way it should be then don't order. In Louisiana if you order Blackend anything they will tell you (some places) that they will not take it back if it's too spicy. And that's the way it should be. If you don't think you can handle it then don't order it.
