Here is a sneak peak at the brand-new Taco Bell breakfast item: the quesarito.
Taco Bell is testing out more ways to make you “quiero Taco Bell” in the A.M. They are currently testing the new Breakfast Quesarito, a morning version of a hybrid concept completely unique to Taco Bell that combines the cheesy, melty, tortilla flavors of quesadillas and burritos. The Breakfast Quesarito adds some scrambled eggs to the mix, and is being tested right now in Oklahoma City. If approved, Taco Bell will join the elite forces of the brand-new Taco Bell breakfast menu containing the A.M. Crunchwrap Supreme, and the other Mexican breakfast hybrid: the Waffle Taco.

“The ultimate craveable mash-up has come to breakfast!” a Taco Bell representative said in a press statement. “The new Breakfast Quesarito is a classic breakfast burrito wrapped up in a grilled quesadilla loaded with lots of melted cheeses to bring a delicious twist to the everyday breakfast burrito!”
Right now, a bacon or sausage Quesarito costs $1.99, and a steak Quesarito costs $2.79, but prices may change as the product hits the market.

Taco Bell Might Be Removing Potatoes, Other Items From Its Menu
For anyone plugged into the Taco Bell rumor mill, the last few days have been pure chaos as fans contend with the prospect of losing some of their favorite menu items — including, but not limited to, potato dishes, which are objectively the best thing you can order at Taco Bell.
The rumors began nearly a week ago, with a post on the subreddit r/LivingMas (the subreddit for “all things Taco Bell”). A user with the flair “verified employee” wrote that the fast-food chain will be suspending “all potato items,” Quesaritos, Loaded Grillers, Triple Layer Nachos, Nachos Supreme, Beefy Frito Burritos, and other menu items starting in mid-August. The same user provided an update a few days later, noting some changes and new information:
– Quesaritos are staying, however, ONLY as a web/mobile app exclusive. Stores will not be able to sell them as the key will be removed.
– Potato bites are staying, but for BREAKFAST ONLY.
– Nacho Supreme is confirmed to be leaving.
– Added to the list of items leaving: Grilled Steak Taco, Chips & Guac, and Chips & Pico.
– AM Sausage Crunchwrap will now be built with crumbled sausage. The sausage patty is deleted.
Reactions to these rumored menu changes have been passionate, to say the least:
Taco Bell itself remains mum on whether or not it’s cutting these specific menu items, but confirmed to Business Insider and Thrillist that the chain is “in the process of evolving our menu to simplify operations and make our team member and customer experiences easier.” Eater’s request for comment has gone unanswered…
Taco Bell Tests New Breakfast Menu Item: Breakfast Quesarito
Earlier this year, Taco Bell announced it was offering a quesadilla-wrapped burrito known as the Quesarito. Now, the chain is testing an AM version of the Quesarito complete with eggs and nacho cheese.
According to GrubGrade reader Aaron (who spotted The Breakfast Quesarito in an undisclosed location), it has “scrambled eggs and shredded cheddar cheese on the inside and nacho cheese in the outer layer quesadilla-style wrap.” The egg-filled Quesarito is available with sausage or bacon for $1.99ਊnd there’s a steak version for $2.79.
Brand Eating reports that the original Quesarito was first tested in Oklahoma City, so maybe the Quesarito 2.0 is being tested in the same spot.
If this sounds like a Taco Bell breakfast item you would like to f*ck with, make your way to Oklahoma City or pray to the fast-food gods that the chain will roll out their Breakfast Quesarito nationwide.
Perhaps Taco Bell's most popular secret menu item is the Cheesarito. It's melted cheese, scallions, and taco sauce in a soft tortilla. This cheap snack packs a ton of flavor in a tiny package.

The beloved Enchirito was inexplicably removed from Taco Bell's regular menu in 2013. But, don't worry, you can still order this fan favorite enchilada and burrito mash-up. Most employees will understand exactly what you mean, but just in case, ask for an enchilada stuffed with beans, beef, and cheese.
Rumors Taco Bell is Dropping this Item Angers Fans
According to a self-proclaimed insider, Taco Bell will soon be removing Quesaritos from their menu, the rumors of which have got people really freaking out on social media.
For the woefully underinformed, the quesartio is a beef burrito, wrapped by grilled quesadilla filled of melted cheese, and appears to be a very popular item with late-night surfers of the Internet.
The rumors started on a subreddit called "Living Mas, which is a Taco Bell-focused section of social news aggregator Reddit. A user that posts under the username "tacobellblake" listed some bullet points of how the Taco Bell menu will change starting on August 13th, which included this particular "spoiler":
QUESARITOS – RIP. I've never liked this item but I appreciate it because I understand this is a fan favorite item. The Quesarito released first as a LTO in June 2014. February of the next year we got the Sriracha Quesarito. Then October 2015 was the Volcano Quesarito. E8 2016 we got the Habanero Quesarito. Exactly one year later we had the Steak Quesarito Box for a gaming giveaway. Now the year is 2020 and they decide the quesarito's time is up after 6 years on the menu.
Judging by the immediate and voluminous levels of outrage expressed by fans of the beefy, cheesy bit of goodness? Taco Bell would be crazy to kills this suddenly-beloved menu item. With apologies to Mark Twain, reports of quesarito's death may be exaggerated, for there has been a surplus of support for the quesarito, exemplified by a handful of tweets included below:
Taco Bell discontinuing potatoes & the quesarito has officially cemented this year as the worst

the quesarito being removed from the menu? why do any of us even try anymore life is only pain
— Zac Efron & Guy Fieri's best friend (@Bobaganoush) July 14, 2020
Taco Bell is gonna remove the quesarito, the single greatest item they've ever added to the menu. This really is the year of zero good decisions
— Josh Guttveg (@joshguttveg) July 15, 2020
The examples could go on, and on…and on. One enterprising Taco Bell fan even went so far as to start an online petition at Change.org, which thus far has nearly 60o signatures.
A representative from Taco Bell neither confirmed nor denied the quesarito's eventual menu disappearance in an interview with Business Insider."We are in the process of evolving our menu to simplify operations and make our team member and customer experiences easier," leaving a window of hope for those upset by the rumored menu evolution.
Many fast food chains have limited their menu offerings due to the coronavirus pandemic, so Taco Bell is by no means an outlier in this regard. There is also the very plausible theory that the "insider" leak was designed to draw out free publicity, which if was the idea all along, worked out as well as could be imagined. Taco Bell has removed items before, which you can check out at the 11 beloved menu items from Taco Bell that have vanished forever.

Taco Bell’s Latest Breakfast Hybrid Is the French Toast Chalupa
Taco Bell is no stranger to fast food mash-ups. This is the chain that invented Kit Kat Quesadillas and Nacho Fries after all. Their latest breakfast item follows in their long and glorious tradition of taking literally any food item available and turning it into a taco shell. Seriously, they’ve used everything from Doritos to fried eggs as makeshift, faux-Mexican wraps.
Their newest creation is just as strange and ambitious in its hybrid appeal, so let’s all give a warm, sticky welcome to the French Toast Chalupa. The item is just like you’d expect. It’s essentially a slice of French toast that’s used as a chalupa shell, which surrounds eggs, bacon, or sausage crumbles. Naturally, it comes with a side of syrup for dipping. What brunch would be complete without it?
But don’t get too excited just yet. Right now Taco Bell is only testing the item at one location, so you’ll have to trek all the way to Dayton, Ohio to get your French toast fix. (Hey, we don’t blame you if it’s the impetus for your next road trip. It wouldn’t be the first time someone drove all the way to Ohio for fast food.)
And while you’re at it, you might as well stop at the Taco Bell in Birmingham, Alabama and try out something called the Queso Quesarito. That alliteratively named product consists of two tortillas wrapped around beef, rice, sour cream, and spicy chipotle sauce. Currently, there’s no plan to roll out either of these items nationwide just yet. So you’ll have to settle for a standard breakfast burrito in the meantime. But at least there is some good news on the horizon. Nacho fries will make a triumphant return in the coming weeks. So at least we have that to look forward too.
What Are The American Vegetarian Association Certified Items
The American Vegetarian Association has verified some of Taco Bell’s menu items and has approved them as certified vegetarian.
The Bean Burrito is referred to as the menu item that pioneers traveling west would order. The bean burrito is a tortilla filled with refried beans, cheddar cheese, sour cream, diced onions, and a red sauce.
Black Bean Crunchwrap Supreme
The black bean crunchwrap supreme is the vegetarian version of this popular menu item. A warm tortilla is wrapped around black beans, layers of nacho cheese sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and a crunchy tostada shell.
Black Bean Quesarito
The Quesarito is a quesadilla wrapped up like a burrito and filled with black beans, seasoned rice, chipotle sauce, and sour cream.

What can a Diabetic eat at Taco Bell?
Having Type I or Type II diabetes doesn’t mean an end to some of the foods you enjoy – including fast food like Taco Bell. It’s all about balance and moderation. Even so, your daily dietary intake is very important to manage your diabetes, so keep track of your carbs to manage blood sugar levels.
Carbs are not the enemy of diabetics
A person with diabetes needs the same nutrients as anyone else – including carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Carbohydrates convert to glucose, needed by neurons and red blood cells for energy. Just because you have to track your carbs doesn’t mean you have to avoid or decrease carb intake to dangerously low levels. Doing so can affect neurons, brain functions, and even lead to brain damage.
Carbohydrates also contain valuable nutrients like fiber, vitamins, and minerals but not all carbohydrates are considered equal in regard to nutritional value. For example, starchy or sugary carbs offer less value for energy conversion than carbs gained through plant sources.
Does that mean that you can’t enjoy fast food once in a while? No. You can, but as with all your food choices, moderation and careful monitoring for your blood sugar levels is important.
Consumption of carbohydrates triggers an increase in blood sugar levels. This is normal. However, for diabetics, balancing and tracking your blood sugar levels with medication, exercise or activity, and carbohydrate intake may take some getting used to.
Why do diabetics have to watch their carb intake?
You may have heard that carbohydrates are bad for diabetics, but the body needs carbs – even diabetics – but carbs also have a direct influence on your blood sugar levels. Typically the standard intake of carbs on a daily basis ranges 45% to 65% of your total daily caloric intake. According to the CDC, a diabetic should aim for about 45% carbohydrates – but always discuss optimal levels with your physician or dietary/nutritional professional, as every person metabolizes food differently based on age, weight, and so forth.
Medical professionals recommend limiting carbohydrates to a certain amount of grams per day. For example, the recommended daily intake of carbs for men is approximately 60-75 grams per meal for men and 45-60 grams for women, for an overall daily allowance of roughly 130 grams.  Diabetics should always follow their doctor’s recommendations which may vary depending on the type of diabetes you have and your current health status.
Carb servings are typically measured in grams, with an average of 15 grams per serving. Remember that intake differs among individuals based on age, weight, type of medications you’re taking, activity levels and lifestyle. Consult with your primary care provider regarding personalized recommendations for primary dietary nutrients: carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
Does my diagnosis mean I can’t dine out or eat fast food?
After you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes (Type I or II), you do have to pay more attention to your diet. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t eat out – even at your favorite fast food restaurants like Taco Bell.
Lots of common foods contain carbs and you’ll find them on just about every dining or fast-food menu. Some examples include but are not limited to:
- Grains – everything from crackers to rice to noodles and bread
- Dairy products
- Starchy vegetables – potatoes, corn, peas
- Fruits – think apples, melons, oranges and bananas
- Legumes – such as lentils and dried beans
Some foods have very low or no carbohydrate content, such as poultry, meats, and some types of cheeses. Nuts, oils, and other fats contain low levels of carbohydrates. By reading nutritional information and label ingredients before dining out, you can enjoy fast foods (within reason). Pay attention to the number of carb grams per serving and select menu options that offer lower carbohydrates and you can still enjoy your ‘Run to the Border’.

The burritos at Taco Bell are a bit more challenging. Most of the burritos average between 47 to 63 g carbs, except the regional Chili Cheese Burrito at 40 grams.
Chalupas and Gorditas are also a possibility, depending on your intake for the rest of your day. The Chicken or Steak Chalupa Supreme options will give you 31 g and 32 g of carbs respectively.
Some additional lower carb options at Taco Bell can be found on their Veggie menu. Items such as:
- Cheesy Roll-Ups (15 g)
- Shredded Chicken Quesadilla Melt (35 g)

- Pintos ‘n cheese (20 g)
- Chips and Pico de Gallo (22)

Track your nutrients and stay within ranges recommended by your physician. Just because you have diabetes doesn’t mean you can’t continue to enjoy the foods you love. It's all about moderation.

Taco Bell Is Adding a Burrito Wrapped In a Quesadilla To the Menu
Taco Bell’s decision to start serving breakfast was big news this week, but let’s be honest, Taco Bell breakfast is going to be an abomination. There’s a reason why no one substitutes waffles for tortillas while making normal tacos: it’s disgusting. It’s like making chili but instead of kidney beans someone throws in Cheerios and tries to call it “breakfast chili.”
Not all of Taco Bell’s new concoctions are gross. The company is also adding a quesarito to the menu. A quesarito is a burrito wrapped in a quesadilla. It sounds incredible, as do most food stuffs characterized by being wrapped in an extra layer of cheese and carbs.
Taco Bell is currently testing the quesarito in Oklahoma City. “It’s a killer product,” Taco Bell president Brian Niccol told Nation’s Restaurant News. “It’s lighting it up.” There’s no date set yet for the quesarito’s mainstream debut.
Chipotle already serves quesaritos, because Chipotle is like Taco Bell’s rich cousin who gets everything first, the one who hasn’t accepted Taco Bell’s friend request on Facebook yet but that’s just because she’s like super busy. Taco Bell’s quesarito will obviously be inferior to Chipotle’s, but at least it’s a tasty concept.
History [ edit | edit source ]
The idea of the quesarito is not an original of Taco Bell, as Chipotle restaurants designed it from their secret menu. This idea dates back to 2011. However, Taco Bell is credited with innovating their own style of the quesarito, and making the food go mainstream and national in 2014.
As of August 13, 2020, Taco Bell has pulled it from their in-store and drive-through menus, instead only being available for order through the website or mobile app.

Taco Bell Tests Queso Quesarito
Taco Bell tries out a cheesier option for the Quesarito with the test of the new Queso Quesarito in Birmingham, Alabama.
The test item is basically the chain's regular Quesarito but with queso sauce in place of nacho cheese sauce. Specifically, it's a quesadilla made with two flour tortillas sandwiching queso sauce and shredded cheese wrapped up into a burrito filled with seasoned rice, seasoned beef, Creamy Chipotle sauce, and sour cream.
Taco Bell's queso sauce was first introduced in 2016 as a limited-time item and consists fire-roasted green chilies, onions, jalapenos, tomatillos, cheese, and a hint of cayenne.
The Queso Quesarito is priced at $2.99, which is about the same price as the regular Quesarito.
