Review: Taco Bell - Beefy Fritos Burrito

Taco Bell's new Beefy Fritos Burrito is part of the new $1 Cravings value menu and features seasoned ground beef, cilantro rice, warm nacho cheese sauce, and original Fritos corn chips, wrapped up in a warm flour tortilla.

I bought one for $1.

If you're looking for a new flavor or flavor combination, you probably won't find it here. The Fritos add mostly salt, a little corn, and not much crunchiness to the burrito. Those hoping/expecting the Flamin' Hot Fritos are going to be sorely disappointed.

Other than that, it's a pretty standard beef and rice burrito. I didn't get much in the way of nacho sauce in mine, so it was just mostly rice and beef, which is okay but a little plain. More cheese would have definitely helped, but the cheese gods were not with me on this occasion.

Overall, Taco Bell's new Beefy Fritos Burrito was acceptable but a little bit too boring for me. The Fritos corn chips aren't very lively and I'd rather they had just crumbled a Doritos Loco shell of any flavor in there. I'd choose the similar Beefy Nacho Griller over it.

On a side note, for those still pining for the Flamin' Hot Fritos-laced  Beefy Crunch Burrito, you might want to fill out those surveys they have on the back of the receipts with a request for it. I was told that they take those surveys into account when deciding what past items to bring back.
