Taco Bell just added the Toasted Cheddar Chalupa to their menu, and we were really eager to try it out! After all, taking a beloved menu item and making it even cheesier seems like a slam dunk!
We sent our in-house Taco Bell expert and self-proclaimed chalupa-lover Stetson to test this updated version of one of his favorite menu items. In case you missed it, you can catch his taste test by watching a replay of yesterday’s Facebook Live video. Here’s what he had to say before trying out the Toasted Cheddar Chalupa:
“I basically live at Taco Bell. I love all of their items, from the bean and cheese burritos to that spicy nacho cheese and chips to their classic crunchy taco. Every once in a while something new comes along to Taco Bell that surprises us and tastes great, and sometimes the new item is a disaster. Today I’m trying the new Toasted Cheddar Chalupa to see how it rates as the newest menu item at Taco Bell!”
The Toasted Cheddar Chalupa features 6-month-aged cheddar toasted right onto the traditional Chalupa flatbread shell. Inside you’ll find seasoned beef, a three-cheese blend, lettuce, tomatoes, and reduced-fat sour cream.
The Toasted Cheddar Chalupa can be ordered with beef ($3.19), chicken ($3.79), or steak ($3.99). You can also upgrade your Chalupa to a meal with two tacos and a drink for $5.99. Please note that prices may vary by location, and these were the prices listed at Stetson’s local Taco Bell.
Here’s what Stetson had to say about this new menu item:
“This new Toasted Cheddar Chalupa was a total surprise! I really enjoy the classic Chalupa from Taco Bell, but this one just blew me away. From the first bite into the crunch of that toasted cheese I was hooked. The shell melted in my mouth and gave me a taste of cheese that was just perfect. With fast-food, we know that sometimes menu items at chain restaurants can be a hit or miss, but this particular Chalupa couldn’t have been any better. I haven’t had anything new from Taco Bell that blew me away like this in a very long time. This definitely should be a permanent menu item. I recommend it 100%, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!”
