New Beefy Potato-rito from Taco Bell Now Available Nationally

Earlier this year we brought you news of Taco Bell testing a new product called the Beefy Potato-rito.  The Beefy Potato-rito has now become a national item and will be available for $1.00 for a limited time only. The Beefy Potato-rito features seasoned beef, seasoned potato bites, a three cheese blend, chipotle sauce and nacho cheese sauce.  Nutrition:  450 calories, 24 grams of fat, 7 grams of saturated fat, 1030 milligrams of sodium, 45 grams of carbs, 4 grams of fiber, 3 grams of sugar, 14 grams of protein.From the Taco Bell website:

Seriously. Think about it. Seasoned Beef and Potatoes are like the dynamic duo of the culinary universe. But hold on a sec! How come Potato is NEVER in the spotlight? It’s like Seasoned Beef is ALWAYS stealing the scene. Take Taco Bell’s new Beefy Potato-rito for example. This new $1* blockbuster is filled with those seasoned, crispy potato bites we all love. And let us not forget the great supporting roles of the melted, real cheddar cheese, creamy chipotle sauce and nacho cheese sauce. It’s obvious that it’s the combined powers of all these ingredients that makes this burrito truly amazing, not just the Seasoned Beef. Which is fine. Maybe one day Potato WILL star in his very own spin-off (without Seasoned Beef), but until then we can all look forward to their combined never ending battle to keep our budgets safe and cravings at bay.

    This is a great item but I have to say the $5 box for it is a HUGE disappointment. In fact in some areas the box is $5.99, meaning the items bought individually would cost LESS than buying the box which consists of 1 Potato-rito ($1) 1 Doritos Locos Taco ($1.59) 1 Crunchy Taco ($1.19) and a Medium Drink ($1.79) for a total of $5.57. They could have at least put 2 Potatoritos in the box to make it a better deal.
    But great item purchased separately, no doubting that!

      The box is $5.99 here, but the potato-rito is $1.39, DLT $1.79, crunchy taco $1.29, and drink $1.99, so it’s still a good deal.

    check your pulse if you aren’t linin’ up for this one

    This tasted very good, but the box was a disappointment for a small burrito as the main box
    Item with the usual two tacos. Just get like 4 of these and drink if you want, unless you just really enjoy standard Taco Bell tacos or a single dorito taco.

    This was good for a $1.29 at my Taco Bell. The potato to meat ratio was a little off on the ones I got with more potatoes in there. But the mix of chipotle and cheese sauce was the real winner. Mine was evenly spread, but I could easily see it end up at the end of the burrito like so many sauces before.
