So I recently tried the all new Toasted Cheddar Chalupa from Taco Bell. The new item showcases one of the Bell’s best food items the Chalupa and takes it to another level with a cheesy glow up.
What exactly is the Cheddar Chalupa you might ask? Well they have taken the Chalupa shell and have baked 6-month aged sharp cheddar cheese onto the chalupa shell to create a crispy blanket of flavor and texture, unlocking a whole new cheese experience.
“At Taco Bell, we get excited by the ‘what if’s’ we can dream up and bring to life for our fans – and the Toasted Cheddar Chalupa is an example of just that,” said Liz Matthews, Chief Food Innovation Officer at Taco Bell Corp. “We know cheese makes everything better, and baking aged cheddar into the shell of an already iconic product is a game changer our fans will love.”
Like the classic chalupa, the Toasted Cheddar Chalupa is filled with the option of seasoned beef, chicken or steak, then piled with shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, grated cheddar cheese, and reduced-fat sour cream, starting at just $2.49. The Toasted Cheddar Chalupa will also be available in a $5 Box, paired with two Crunchy Tacos and a medium soda.
