Review: Taco Bell - Nachos Party Pack

Taco Bell's Nachos Party Pack is their latest order of nachos so far and features tortilla chips topped with seasoned beef, warm nacho cheese sauce, refried beans, guacamole, pickled jalapeno peppers, reduced fat sour cream, and pico de gallo.

I paid $10.99 for an order (the suggested price is $9.99 but it's going for slightly more here in Southern California).

The Nachos Party Pack is roughly about twice the size of the $5 Nachos Grande Box that they offered last year. It comes in a long, fairly-sturdy cardboard box that works out well for sharing or serving on a party table.

For the most part, it's almost just a larger version of the Nachos Grande Box except that it included jalapeno peppers instead of a 3-cheese blend. The jalapenos add some tang, heat, and a watery crunch to the nachos but aren't wet as to pool liquid or add some hidden spice for the unwary.

Beyond that it tastes a lot like the $5 Steak Nacho Box and XXL Nachos I've tried in the past. For the most part, the ingredients are fairly well balanced (except for an uneven smattering of beans) and aren't so heavy that too many of the chips get soggy. Still, it could use a cup of nacho cheese on the side. That way the chips aren't negatively impacted by it but you still get all the cheesy goodness you can scoop up.

When it comes down to it, you can consider the Nachos Party Pack a nice option for nachos for a party or for sharing. It serves four people fairly easily (or two if they're really hungry). It also happens to be the cheapest option of the current line-up of Party Packs at Taco Bell.
