I love Taco Bell. I’m not afraid to admit it. Yes, I criticize and judge non-authentic Mexican food all the time. Here’s the thing, Taco Bell makes no attempt at being classed as anything close to authentic Mexican. It’s in a class all by itself. One of my favorite things about Taco Bell is the ever changing menu. It’s actually genius because they tend to just come up with new items and use the exact same ingredients. I follow this very closely. Because if that, I will require myself to keep you all updated on test items and new menu items coming up. If you don’t like Taco Bell, click a different category on the site. There’s something for everyone here. Except vegans. You should probably go somewhere else.
Taco Bell is currently using their fried chicken patty as a Mexican Crispy Chicken Pizza in the Columbus Ohio Market. The “pizza” is a tortilla spread with nacho cheese and then topped with a crispy chicken, Mexican pizza sauce, 3-cheese blend and pico de gallo. Basically its a Mexican pizza with the chicken replacing ground beef and nacho cheese replacing the beans. They’re currently charging $3.49 to $3.99 for this depending on which location you visit.
My verdict on this item — don’t really care. The Mexican pizza has always been the item that old people order at Taco Bell (I recently started ordering it myself) so I can see the need for an update. At this price point, this wouldn’t be something that I would rush to my nearest Taco Bell to order. They also have an opportunity to capitalize on the hysteria the fried chicken taco caused so I can see this making it to the main menu as a temporary item one day.
