Return of the Beefy Crunch Burrito from Taco Bell

The Beefy Crunch Burrito will be available again for $.99 at all participating Taco Bell restaurants beginning December 22, 2011.  I reviewed it about a year ago and I remember really digging the Flamin’ Hot Fritos.

Taco Bell’s Beefy Crunch Burrito is loaded with delicious Flamin’ Hot® Fritos® chips combined with 100% real seasoned beef, warm nacho cheese sauce, seasoned rice and cool reduced fat sour cream providing a delicious and spicy crunch in every bite.

    This makes me mad. This burrito made me fall in love with Flamin’ Hot Fritos but they’re not available locally. Now they’re back and I’ll be forced not to want to rob every Taco Bell I come across just to get my fix.

  2. maxchain says:

    Alright, who told Taco Bell to jam Frito Lay things into their food in the first place? Was it you, Ryan?

  3. Brian says:

    Yeeessss! I love this burrito. It’s probably my favorite promotional item they offer. $1.98 for 2 of these makes a delicious meal anytime.

    Now if Sonic would just bring back the Frito chili cheese wraps and Frito pie

    I joined the 3,000,000 Fans to Bring Back the BCB a long way back, and have been waiting for an announcement. I can’t wait. It’s sad to get so excited over an effing fast food menu item, but these things are the greatest … minus sour cream, of course. The 22nd can’t come soon enough. 🙂 Pretty sure I’ll be going from 150lb-170lb before January 1st… thanks Taco Bell. <3

    I still don’t understand the concept of Fritos at Taco Bell.

    If I want crunchy, I’ll do nachos.

      I love crunchy, and i usually end up putting some of my nacho chips into my soft shelled items. The bonus of having flaming hot fritos to fill that void is nothing short of total awesomeness! Although, i do find the quality and quantity of chips is definitely slacking.

  7. Jeff D. says:

    I really liked this burrito when it first came out. Thing is I am not a big fan of the “Flamin’ Hot” flavor used in all the various chips and snacks they make, but for whatever reason that flavor doesn’t come out in this burrito. It’s just a really yummy spicy burrito!

  8. Keith says:

    I want the Doritos Locos Taco!

    No idea when it’ll show up in my neck of the woods though…

  9. Sandy says:

    I so do not get the appeal of fritos inside a burrito.

  10. Chad says:

    Wow, never had this before but it looks good. I’m excited to try it.

    This website is effing awesome by the way.

  11. Colin says:

    This is the happiest day of my life.

  12. raiders757 says:

    I never tried these the first time around, but at 99 cents, I’m all over it. That falls within my cheap bastard price range I set for anything Taco Bell. I go to TB for quantity, so it’s rare I get anything that’s over $1 on their menu.

  13. Mitchery says:

    This will seriously be my dinner for the next 5 weeks. If I live that long….

  14. Deanna says:

    Don’t the Fritos poke giant bloody holes in the roof of your mouth?

  15. Aaron says:

    He’s back, baby, he’s back. Your friend and mine, the Beefy Crunch Burrito. Why TB ever removed this item from their menu is a mystery to me. Infinitely better than the chicken flatbread that made its return a few months ago (even though no one wanted it).

    Two of these without sour cream (you’ve got a problem if you like TB’s sour cream, by the way) makes the perfect low cost lunch. Douse on some Cholula or Chipotle Tabasco sauce, and you’ve got something that is truly exceptional.

  16. Chad says:

    I had 4 of these today (2 for lunch, 2 for dinner).. a low price and a good amount of food. The second time the shorted me on fritos and it wasn’t as good so I bought flamin’ hot chitos at the gas station and put it on the burritos.. oh man, that was good!
