For many years, Taco Bell has been the favorite go-to place for fast, convenient, and savory Tex-Mex meals. There are so many options for Taco Bell meal deals that can really give you value for money, and Taco Bell has really expanded its menu beyond the usual offerings.
However, Taco Bell is not Taco Bell without its signature taco. It’s the cornerstone of every Taco Bell meal, and while you can choose to enjoy something entirely different altogether when picking from the many Taco Bell Meal Deals, the taco still reigns supreme. Here are 7 ways to enjoy your taco at Taco Bell:
The classic Crunchy Taco welcomes your bite with the sound of the crispy outer shell breaking inside our mouth. The crunchy corn shell is filled with seasoned beef, lettuce, and cheese, and sometimes this is all you need to make your day complete.
You can also opt for the Crunchy Taco Supreme, which makes this classic offering even better by adding diced tomatoes and reduced fat sour cream.
This one still gives you the tasty goodness of seasoned beef, lettuce, and cheese, but if you’re not a fan of the crunchy taco shell, you can get a warm flour tortilla instead. It tastes just like the crunchy taco, but the warm flour tortilla gives it a softer and more delicate flavor.
If you want something a little more, the Soft Taco Supreme adds in some reduced fat sour cream and diced tomatoes. You can also add other ingredients if you’re willing to pay a little extra: pico de gallo, chipotle sauce, beans, potatoes, guacamole, and many more.
Chicken Soft Taco
The Chicken Soft Taco is something you would probably not expect to see at Taco Bell. Tacos are usually associated with Taco Bell’s signature seasoned beef, but this one adds just the right variety that some people are craving. With tasty shredded chicken, sliced lettuce, diced tomatoes, and real cheddar cheese all wrapped up in a nice flour tortilla, those who are looking for just the right amount of a protein kick will definitely appreciate this one.
Grilled Steak Soft Taco
Another great substitute for the usual seasoned beef is grilled steak, which you can now enjoy as a soft taco. The grilled steak is made even more delectable by adding avocado ranch dressing, tomatoes, lettuce, and cheddar cheese. This soft taco is entirely different in terms of taste when you compare it to the usual soft taco and even the chicken soft taco. But if you’re game to try something different this time, then this could be for you.
Double Decker Taco
Another option that’s definitely not your usual taco is the Double Decker one. You get two layers of taco shells: one is the usual crunchy corn shell, and the other is the soft flour tortilla. So technically, you’re getting the best of both worlds. In between the 2 ‘shells’ is a layer of warm refried beans, and you get the same seasoned beef, lettuce, and cheesy goodness as you bite into it.
The Double Decker Taco Supreme gives you something a little more, because then you can enjoy it with reduced fat sour cream and tomatoes.
Fiery Doritos Locos Tacos Supreme
Reigning supreme in the spicy department, if you want something that sets your taste buds on fire then this is the one you should look for. Sure, this taco still gives you they typical seasoned beef, tomatoes, lettuce, reduced fat sour cream, and cheddar cheese, but the clincher is the taco shell. The shell is made of real Doritos, in its most spicy and flaming version. So when you bite into it, you’re getting all the goodness of a Supreme Taco and a Fiery Dorito all rolled into one. You’ll definitely go loco for this one.
Taco Bell of course knows that not everyone likes it fiery, so there are other Doritos Locos Tacos options you can pick from. The Cool Ranch taco gives you that fresh, summer feeling, thanks to its cool ranch-flavored Dorito shell. The Nacho Cheese version, on the other hand, comes with a taco shell that tastes like your favorite nacho cheese Doritos. It’s standard, it’s cheesy, and it’s oh so good.
Cheesy Gordita Crunch
The Cheesy Gordita Crunch is like the love child of a taco and a quesadilla. You still get your seasoned beef, lettuce, spicy ranch, 3-cheese blend, and cheddar cheese, but this one’s completely unique because like the Double Decker, you basically get 2 layers of shells. One is the crunchy corn shell, and the other is the Gordita (a warm and soft flatbread).
