Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Bigger than I thought it would be (12 inch tortilla that makes my hands look small). Lots of steak and cheese. Tender steak. Salsa has a nice flavor that goes well with the quesadilla and chips. Pepper jack cheese gives it enough flavor so you don’t need to dip it in the salsa. Comes with chips. Big containers of salsa and sour cream with enough to use with the quesadilla AND chips. Shareable. Awesome source of fiber, if you eat the whole thing. Everything Lorena Garcia touches.
Cons: Salsa wasn’t as spicy as I hoped it would be. Steak was unusually tender, as if it’s been prechewed. All the steak was concentrated at the bottom of the quesadilla. Awesome source of sodium and saturated fat, if you eat the whole thing. Smells like everything else from Taco Bell that’s been grilled.

5 thoughts to “QUICK REVIEW: Taco Bell Cantina Double Steak Quesadilla”
Yes, if steak is tender, something has to be wrong…
I should’ve explained myself better. And I have by adding to the review. And I’ve added the steak’s tenderness to the pros. Yes, tender steak is a good thing, but it’s unusually tender. How unusual? It’s the most tender steak my teeth have ever sunk themselves into. To me something is weird if fast food steak is more tender than every steakhouse steak I’ve ever had.
The original quesadilla is the only thing I get from Taco Bell. I’m looking forward to trying this (as repulsive as the nutritional info may be).
am I the only one who is hoping for a Cantina Crunchwrap.
I will second that!
