The must-try Taco Bell secret menu items include the Cheesarito, Mexican Calzone, Enchirito, and Hulk. There are also drinks and sauces like the Tie-Dye Freeze and Lava Sauce.

Taco Bell Secret Menu Items You Want to Check Out
For all you Taco Bell fans who want to switch it up, here are 9 of the most appealing secret menu items that Taco Bell has to offer:
If you’re looking for a dose of cheesy deliciousness in your day, look no further than the Cheesarito!
This secret menu item is a soft tortilla wrap that contains a mouthwatering blend of scallions, melted cheese, and whichever sauce you want.
I recommend choosing fire sauce for that extra kick of flavor. Non spicy lovers can go for the classic Guacamole sauce instead.
Since it’s so popular, Taco Bell employees will often know exactly what you want when you order a Cheesarito. Naturally, the same can’t be said for most other secret menu items on this list.
Who doesn’t love a warm, gooey enchilada? Absolutely no one!
If you want to take your enchilada’s flavor to new heights, you won’t regret the Enchirito.
To transform a run-of-the-mill enchilada into an Enchirito, you should request additions of beans, beef, and cheese.
I promise you dancing taste buds, a full stomach, and a craving of seconds after indulging in this scrumptious treat!
3. Tie-Dye Freeze
Have you ever looked at Taco Bell’s collection of slushie flavors and wondered what it would be like to combine them all in one drink? I know I have!
Once you try the Tie-Dye Freeze, you too won’t have to wonder anymore.
To order this secret menu gem, just ask the Taco Bell employee to stack all the Freeze flavors they have at the branch in one cup.
The combination I tried was a mix of Mango, Cherry, and Baja Blast Freezes. At first, I wasn’t sure if the plethora of flavors would work out, but as soon as I took a sip, I thought: I’m a genius!
Plus, the Tie-Dye Freeze is the perfect refreshing blend of tropical flavors on those hot summer days.
4. The Incredible Hulk
Your guacamole love affair will meet its match with the Incredible Hulk, a monster-sized burrito with monster-sized flavors, too. You start with Taco Bell’s favorite five-layer burrito but instead of the melted nacho cheese, you ask for it to be substituted with a healthy helping of guacamole. You just cannot have enough of it, too, especially when you think about the vitamins and minerals of the guacamole on top of your soul-satisfying food.
How to order the Incredible Hulk
The Incredible Hulk is one of the most popular secret menu items Taco Bell has to offer, turning a rather unhealthy dish into something a bit more nutritious. The Incredible Hulk takes the regular menu’s 5 layer burrito and swaps the nacho cheese sauce with guacamole (there’s the green stuff!). This version is made “fresco” style and removes the tortilla shell and sour cream that normally come with the burrito.
When you order the Incredible Hulk, you can just ask for it by name. Most Taco Bell employees will know what it is by name, but if they don’t just explain the ingredients to them with the notes above.
Note: There is also something called the “Hulk” on the Taco Bell secret menu, but this is something entirely different, so don’t get them confused! The Hulk is simply a bean and cheese burrito with a dollop of guacamole on top (yes – it’s delicious, too!).
Incredible Hulk price
It’s one of the cheapest secret menu items available at Taco Bell, going for $1.89 at most locations (prices may vary).
5. The Superman
Sticking to the superhero theme, Taco Bell’s secret menu items also include the Superman.
Taco Bell is, indeed, an American institution, so it comes as no surprise that a few of its secret menu items are named after yet another institution in American life – superheroes.
To create this delicious meal, order a Beefy Melt Burrito and ask for extra additions of potatoes, tortilla strips, sour cream, and guacamole. Save this meal with its extra toppings of potatoes, guacamole, and crispy tortilla strips with sour cream dressing for your own superhero of a day. When you sink your teeth into its creamy, beefy and crunchy textures, you will become a fan, too.
The result is a heavenly combination of cheesiness along with a crispy crunch!
6. Mexican Calzone
The Mexican Calzone is based on a staple of Taco Bell’s standard menu, the CrunchWrap Supreme.
Making a Mexican Calzone is as simple as ordering a chicken or beef CrunchWrap.
Then, ask for black beans instead of the usual nacho cheese and lettuce. Next, ask to add Taco Bell’s signature three-cheese blend.
The resulting Mexican Calzone is arguably tastier than the closely related and super-hyped Mexican Pizza (Controversial opinion, anyone?).
Eating your Mexican Calzone is also an adventure – at least for me! Gobbling it up before the fillings burst out of the tortilla’s center crease is like a ticking time bomb.
7. Lava Sauce
A few years ago, Taco Bell’s Lava Sauce was all the rage. Unfortunately, they removed it from the menu in 2016.
Guess what? You can still make it yourself!
All you need to do is mix some nacho cheese with two or three packets of fire sauce.
You can add this DIY Lava Sauce to any of your favorite Taco Bell dishes to give them a spicy kick.
Also, why stop there?
Add lava sauce to your homemade dishes too to make your dinner one to remember.
8. Fiesta Potatoes BellGrande
The Fiesta Potatoes BellGrande is among the best side dishes on the Taco Bell secret menu.
Simply ask to switch the chips with fiesta potatoes. Not only can you eat this as a side dish, but you can also have it as an appetizer.
For my non-meat eaters, you can make this vegetarian-friendly by replacing the beef with black beans.
9. Double-Grilled Quesadilla
Are you familiar with ordering a quesadilla and that turns out soggy?
To put this problem in your rear-view mirror, there’s a simple fix. Just ask for a Double-Grilled Quesadilla and thank me later!
The extra round of grilling will give your quesadilla the double crunch it needs to delight your taste buds.
10. Chili Cheese Burritos
Add melted cheese and hot chili to your usual burrito, which has the best beans and beef combo ever, and you have chili cheese burritos. You may complain about the messiness of the dish, but you will not care so much when the flavor first caresses your palate before exploding in spicy fireworks. Just ask the cashier to add chili and cheese to your bean burrito.
11. Waffle Taco
When you order from Taco Bell online, you can choose from the restaurant’s standard menu items with a few customization options.
However, these customizations are limited so you won’t be able to create your favorite secret menu items.
As a result, it’s better to order them at a drive-through or when eating in at Taco Bell.
A few months ago, Taco Bell removed the highly popular Quesarito from its menu. The fast food chain started removing the fan-favorite dish from different locations’ menus. By April 19th, you couldn’t find the Quesarito in any Taco Bell across the country.
To many of its fans’ delight, Taco Bell announced it would bring back the Beefy Crunch Burrito to its menu this year. They finally followed through a couple of months ago, with the Beefy Crunch Burrito making its long-awaited return on August 3rd, 2023.
The Taco Bell secret menu is full of hidden gems. Whether you’re trying to take your burrito, tortilla wrap, or enchilada to the next level, you’ll find a filling meal to indulge in!
Once you try the Cheesarito, Enchirito, Hulk, or Mexican Calzone, they may very well become your go-to order from Taco Bell.
That’s not to mention the tornado of flavors offered by the Tie-Dye Freeze or the spicy twist you get from Lava Sauce.
We can’t wait for you to try these amazing secret menu items the next time you go to Taco Bell!
