Review: Taco Bell - $2 Chipotle Ranch Grilled Chicken Burrito

Taco Bell's Chipotle Ranch Grilled Chicken Burrito features grilled chicken, crispy red tortilla strips, shredded lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, Avocado Ranch sauce, and Creamy Chipotle sauce wrapped up in a warm flour tortilla.

The suggested price for one is $2 and it is part of their latest value menu. The burrito cost me $2.49 here in Los Angeles though.

With the only hot/warm ingredients being the chicken and the flour tortilla, the Chipotle Ranch Grilled Chicken Burrito ended up feeling a lot like a salad-filled wrap as there was a thin line of chicken throughout and a whole of lettuce inside. It was a pretty good-sized, well-shaped burrito for a very reasonable price.

With the overall lukewarm temperature of the burrito, the crispy red tortilla strips were very crunchy, which was a nice change from the steamed soft, barely crispy tortilla strips I usually find in Taco Bell's burritos. There was a good amount of them so I got plenty of crunch in my burrito.

The chicken came in relatively small pieces and had just enough presence to let me know there was seasoned chicken in the burrito.

The lettuce was fairly crisp, while the tomatoes were bland. The sauce came in moderate amounts and it was mostly the Avocado Ranch that came across. I didn't really pick up much of the smokiness or heat of the Creamy Chipotle sauce. The cheddar cheese also came across pretty well.

Overall, Taco Bell's $2 Chipotle Ranch Grilled Chicken Burrito felt well worth the price and offers a fresh salad-type option that's a rarity on the Taco Bell menu (although they offered a similar flavor profile with last year's Loaded Chicken Flatbread Taco). That being said, I don't really go to Taco Bell for salad.
