REVIEW: Taco Bell Cheesy Double Beef Burrito (2022)

Taco Bell Cheesy Double Beef Burrito  2022 Split Top

Taco Bell’s website describes its Cheesy Double Beef Burrito as having “seasoned rice, seasoned beef, nacho cheese sauce, fiesta strips, three cheese blend, reduced fat sour cream wrapped in a warm tortilla.”

Oh, I’m sorry. I copied and pasted the ingredients for Taco Bell’s Beefy Melt Burrito.

Here’s what the website says the Cheesy Double Beef Burrito has: Double the seasoned beef as compared to a Crunchy Taco, seasoned rice, nacho cheese sauce, fiesta strips, reduced fat sour cream, and a three-cheese blend wrapped in a warm flour tortilla.

Hey, wait a minute. So the Cheesy Double Beef Burrito is a beefier Beefy Melt Burrito, or a Beeeefy Melt Burrito, if you will.

If you’re a regular Taco Bell-er I’m sure you already recognized this. And being so astute when it comes to all things Taco Bell, you probably knew there was a Cheesy Double Beef Burrito before that didn’t have the fiesta strips and sour cream.

As for how it tastes, well, the first thought that popped into my head after taking a bite was that it tastes like what I imagine is the textbook flavor definition of Taco Bell. And that’s because there’s nothing unique about the combination of ingredients, nor is there something that makes this product special, like Frito-Lay chips or a new sauce.

If you’ve eaten many different Taco Bell products over the years, there’s a 99 percent chance that you’ve eaten something with the combination of seasoned beef, seasoned rice, nacho cheese sauce, three cheese blend, and reduced fat sour cream. And let’s face it, the seasoned rice is more for filler than flavor, and the three cheese blend’s flavor gets lost when paired with nacho cheese sauce. So the ingredients that really get noticed here by my tongue are beef, nacho cheese, and sour cream, and I don’t have enough fingers to count the number of times those three ended up in the same product.

I will admit I was surprised by this burrito’s heft. I guess having double the seasoned beef as a crunchy taco makes a difference. Also, the fiesta strips still had some crunch even after I drove home and took photos.

Is it good? Yeah, it’s good. Is it inventive? No. Would I order it again? If I could buy it at the $2 advertised price, definitely. Even at the $3.59 price I paid because I live on a rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean where everything is more expensive, I probably would.

7 thoughts to “REVIEW: Taco Bell Cheesy Double Beef Burrito (2022)”

  1. Weighing your burrito reminds me.. Taco Bell used to actually publish their serving sizes in grams.
    In fact, a lot of fast food spots published their serving size in grams. Now, none do.
    I can’t imagine most people would care, but it was really convenient for anyone on a diet.
    An over/under-stuffed burrito can easily vary by 50% or more calories from day to day.

  2. Surprised this rating is so high. It’s a heavy burrito, but the burrito is nothing but rice. The cross-section shows no beef whatsoever just rice, sauce, tortilla strips. I can’t stand the taste of their rice and I always get rice burritos like what appears to be the case here.

    If that’s not the case here, well it’s definitely the case with my locations and it makes me sad because I used to love TB.

  3. I always get my Beefy Melt Burritos with extra beef, so I guess I can just order this now. And is that Baja Blast from this year or from a stockpile? I haven’t seen them yet this year.

    1. It’s from this year. I’m surprised you haven’t seen them yet. Have you been seeing Baja Gold and Baja Mango Gem?

      1. I’ve only seen those two in 20oz. I guess I’ll have to go on a Baja Blast hunting trip. Thanks for the reply!

    1. “starting to?” Lol. And I’m pretty glad that this is back. Anyways, it’s Taco Bell…people should know what to expect by now. Also glad that the crispy chicken cantina tacos are making a reappearance.
