From tasting the iconic Mexican Pizza for the first time to trying Dolly Parton's usual order, I'm always down for a new Taco Bell adventure. And while taco may be in the chain's name, I've found that some of the best items on the menu are actually burritos. Over the last few years, Taco Bell has really stepped up its burrito game and released exciting new flavors. Here's how the newer burritos stacked up against Taco Bell's beloved classics. Taco Bell released the Beefy Melt Burrito as part of its new Cravings Value Menu at the start of 2022. The $2 burrito includes seasoned rice, seasoned beef, nacho cheese sauce, fiesta strips, a three-cheese blend, and sour cream, according to the chain's website. The Beefy Melt Burrito definitely didn't live up to its name. I couldn't taste any of the nacho cheese sauce, and there wasn't even that much beef. At first, I actually thought I was given a vegetarian burrito by mistake — until I saw a few pieces of meat hidden underneath the rice. With barely any cheese, meat, or sauce, my Beefy Melt Burrito was a huge disappointment. Read my full review of the Beefy Melt Burrito here. The bean burrito is a Taco Bell classic, one you know will always be on the menu no matter the season. The $1.59 burrito features just four ingredients: beans, cheese, onions, and Taco Bell's red sauce. The first thing I wrote in my notes after trying Taco Bell's bean burrito was, Wow, that's a lot of beans in a mouthful. I know it's the main ingredient, but the beans completely overpower everything else. I had to douse my burrito with some hot sauce just to get another flavor. There are far more exciting vegetarian-friendly options at Taco Bell for the same price or a few extra cents. I definitely wouldn't order the bean burrito again. Taco Bell's Quesarito is meant to be the best of both worlds — a quesadilla wrapped inside of a burrito. The $3.79 burrito features seasoned beef, seasoned rice, cheese, nacho cheese sauce, chipotle sauce, and sour cream. Taco Bell writes in its Quesarito description that the first rule of burritos is that burritos are best when they're also quesadillas, but I have to disagree. The beef in my Quesarito had great flavor, but it got lost underneath that extra cheese and tortilla. The combination of the nacho cheese and chipotle sauces helped soften each bite, but mostly I felt like I was just eating a lot of tortilla. The Chipotle Ranch Grilled Chicken Burrito is also part of Taco Bell's Cravings Value Menu and was released in January alongside the Beefy Melt Burrito. The $2 burrito includes grilled chicken, fiesta strips, avocado ranch sauce, chipotle sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and shredded cheddar cheese, according to Taco Bell's website. I always love when Taco Bell grills its burritos, and the combination of the crispy tortilla and lettuce gave the same satisfying crunch as a great deli wrap. Plus, all the veggies tasted super fresh. I thought the chicken was nicely cooked and seasoned, and the delicious avocado ranch and chipotle sauces added so much flavor. They paired great with the chicken and were well-distributed throughout the burrito.Read my full review of the Chipotle Ranch Grilled Chicken Burrito here. The Burrito Supreme is another Taco Bell standard. The $3.99 burrito features a variety of ingredients. It includes seasoned beef, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, cheese, and beans, plus Taco Bell's red sauce and sour cream.I'm a huge fan of the Burrito Supreme. I thought the beans were especially tasty when mixed in with the red sauce and sour cream, and my burrito had the perfect amount of beef. I first tried the Burrito Supreme alongside Taco Bell's bean burrito and Quesarito, and this one was far superior. It's so deliciously moist and — thanks to the addition of all those veggies — tastes way fresher. Taco Bell's Fiesta Veggie Burrito has only been available for a few months, joining the Beefy Melt Burrito and Chipotle Ranch Grilled Chicken Burrito on the chain's new Cravings Value Menu. The $2 burrito comes with seasoned rice, black beans, red strips, chipotle sauce, tomatoes, guacamole, a three-cheese blend, and sour cream, according to Taco Bell's website.There was an explosion of flavor when I first bit into the Fiesta Veggie Burrito. I thought the black beans tasted delicious, and they paired really well with the seasoned rice. But the guacamole was definitely the star of the show. It tasted super fresh, and was perfectly distributed throughout my burrito. I think vegetarians often get stuck with some pretty uninspired dishes from fast-food chains, but the Fiesta Veggie Burrito is packed with tons of flavor. I never thought my favorite Taco Bell burrito would be vegetarian, but the Fiesta Veggie Burrito is easily one of the best items on the entire menu — not just the burrito section.
