FAST FOOD NEWS: Taco Bell Toasted Cheddar Chalupa

News Taco Bell Toasted Cheddar Chalupa

Taco Bell, the maker of fine discontinued products, like the Double Decker Taco, Beefy Mini Quesadilla, Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco, and Fiery Doritos Locos Tacos, has added a menu item that might make you forget about those — the Toasted Cheddar Chalupa.

The highlight of the new product is its shell, which has real, 6-month aged sharp cheddar cheese baked into it. Like the original Chalupa, the Toasted Cheddar Chalupa is filled with either seasoned beef, chicken, or steak, and then shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, grated cheddar cheese, and reduced-fat sour cream are added.

Pricing for the new menu item starts at $2.49. It’s also available in a $5 Box that also comes with two Crunchy Tacos and a medium soda, which you can use to pour one out for all the recently discontinued Taco Bell menu items.

  1. I’ve tried it and it does NOT make up for all the discontinued products especially the Double Decker taco. Why they’re getting rid of it when it’s so simple to make and liked by so many is beyond me. Fortunately my Taco Bell said they will still work with me on an off-menu substitution to get it.
    But yea this new chalupa is HORRIBLE. At least mine was. It tasted like burnt Cheez Its and was very tough to chew. I’ll stick to regular chalupas even though they’re a little more expensive.

  2. Why do they even bother with low fat sour cream? Are there really people who would refuse to eat this if it came with full fat sour cream on top?

    1. Honestly it actually tastes better and it’s a bit thinner, making its texture better for this type of item.

      IMHO. Your mileage may vary

  3. I enjoyed it. The cheddar adds a smoky flavor and also gives a little more chew to the shell. (And I consider low-fat sour cream a bonus, not a drawback.)

    However, by me the price starts at $3.50 for beef, $4.00 for chicken or steak. And that’s far too much for a single chalupa.
