Taco Bell Testing Chicken Grillers Breaded with Crushed Tortilla Chips


After the success of their Doritos Locos Tacos that saved the American economy, Taco Bell has apparently decided that chips + meat is a winning combination and are testing a few new chip-inspired products to gauge customer excitement. First up: the beta version of a chicken wrap called the “Crispy Chicken Griller” that hit test markets in Ohio this month.

The Crispy Chicken Griller is basically Taco Bell’s answer to the McDonald’s McWrap and boasts marinated chicken strips breaded with crushed tortilla chips and available in three different flavors:  Avocado Ranch, Spicy Ranch, or Mango BBQ. The new sandwich costs $1.49 and (if they score well within the Ohio test market) could be introduced to Taco Bell locations across the nation soon.

Taco Bell Unveils a XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito Line

Taco Bell is turning things up. In the spirit of all things bigger-are-better, they’ve taken today to announce the launch of their biggest burrito ever claiming a spot on their menu —  The New XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito.

The bad boy seems like a hodge podge of the brand’s entire ingredient list, featuring three cheeses – cheddar, pepper jack and mozzarella – seasoned rice, beans, reduced-fat sour cream, guacamole, avocado ranch and fiesta salsa, wrapped up in their warm flour tortillas.

The new burrito variety also comes with your choice of meat: ground beef, grilled chicken or steak. The nutritional makeup on all three burritos are pretty similar, but are worthy of a closer look:

XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito – Steak: 820 calories, 36 grams of fat, 33 grams of protein

XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito – Chicken: 840 calories, 35 grams of fat, 40 grams of protein
