Tasting Taco Bell's Triplelupa

Taco Bell's Triplelupa features a "3-in-1, tear-apart Chalupa shell filled with seasoned beef and topped with a three-cheese blend, lettuce, and tomatoes, with nacho cheese sauce on one side, chipotle sauce on the other and the ultimate cheesy chipotle flavor in the middle."

It's currently testing in the Minneapolis area but I was able to try it on a recent visit to Taco Bell headquarters.

Whether you're a fan of the Chalupa or not, the Triplelupa is unlikely to change your mind either way as it's the same thing only smaller and with slightly more variety. Beyond the two different sauces, you get the same signature taste of seasoned beef, lettuce, tomato, and cheese that you get with Taco Bell's tacos, Gorditas, and Chalupas.

As far as the sauces go, they're part of the regular ingredients at Taco Bell so you could go to Taco Bell right now and order a Chalupa with either sauce or both. I enjoyed both sauces (you get warm, gooey cheese with one and creamy smokiness with a touch of heat with the other) and they went nicely together in the middle.

The three mini-Chalupas of the Triplelupa are stuck together for novelty's sake and come apart easily for more convenient eating.

When it comes down to it, the question for me here is "Do I want a snack-sized Chalupa?" I like the smaller size as an option for when I want something light. It's a bit like a Chalupa slider that way. But as it stands currently, you have to buy three, which works better if you're eating family-style in a group.
