What is the Taco Bell Steak Nacho Fries Burrito?
It features the returning Nacho Fries with steak, tomatoes, reduced-fat sour cream, cheddar cheese, chipotle sauce, and nacho cheese sauce inside a warm flour tortilla.
How is it?
Well, it depends on how tired you are of Taco Bell’s creamy chipotle sauce. I’m fine with it because it’s still tasty to me, but it sure seems as if it’s been in every product the chain has put out over the past six months. So I wouldn’t be surprised if there are folks whose taste buds have grown bored of it. Last September, it came with the Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco. Last November, it was in the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito. In January, it was nestled in the Chipotle Cheddar Chalupa. And, last month, it was squirted into a Cantina Crispy Chicken Taco. But if you’re like me and still enjoy that smoky, slightly spicy sauce, then there’s a great chance you’ll like it in this burrito.
Along with the creamy chipotle sauce, the other highlight of this menu item was, and this is going to be hard to believe, the tomatoes. Yes, they’ve been in DOZENS of previous products, and I don’t think I’ve ever considered them a highlight. But the bites I enjoyed the most were the ones where the acidic explosion from a tomato happened on the backdrop of the chipotle and nacho cheese sauces, which created something like tomato queso.
The flavors of the headlining ingredients – the steak and Nacho Fries – come through with most bites, but the sauces stand out the most. The steak was, as usual, unusually tender. And, despite hanging out with three different sauces in the flour tortilla, the handful of fries surprisingly had some crispiness to them.
Anything else you need to know?
You’re not alone if you thought to yourself, “Is the Taco Bell Steak Nacho Fries Burrito new?” I confused it with the Loaded Taco Fries Burrito I had last summer that had seasoned beef, Nacho Fries, crispy red strips, lettuce, nacho cheese sauce, spicy ranch, tomatoes, and cheese.
Also, while we’re comparing burritos, I felt that this one wasn’t as hefty as the Loaded Taco Fries Burrito because it appears to have fewer fries stuffed in it. Of course, your fry stuff-age may vary.
If you want to celebrate the return of Taco Bell’s Nacho Fries, its Steak Nacho Fries Burrito is a delicious way to do so.
