Taco Bell recently announced that it will be bringing back the Beefy Crunch Burrito and the Cheesy Double Beef Burrito on April 21st. Both items are returning as part of the Taco Bell's new Fan Favorite menu, which highlights different dishes based on "fan excitement, passion and engagement."
The Beefy Crunch Burrito is a hybrid fast food creation that consists of seasoned ground beef infused with seasoned rice, sour cream, nacho cheese and Flamin' Hot Fritos corn chips. The corn chips are designed to give the burrito a crunchy texture that is reminiscent of a hard shell taco. In contrast, the Cheesy Double Beef Burrito features a double portion of seasoned ground beef and nacho cheese in a warm flour tortilla. While this dish lacks the same crunchy texture, it contains enough beef for even the hungriest meat lover.
Like other chains, the resurrection of fan favorites represents an attempt to draw in customers who are looking for specific menu items.
