The Ultimate Taco Bell Secret Menu Will Make You Love Life Again

Updated February 28, 2024 by Kyle James

The Taco Bell secret menu is a fun addition to my other secret menu articles. I pretty much lived off Taco Bell in my college days and it was typically consumed after 10 o’clock at night. I would have loved to play around with some of these secret menu items back in the day, especially if any could have saved me money. With no further ado, here’s how their secret menu currently breaks down along with my personal review of many of the items. Enjoy.

The Taco Bell Secret Menu Will Take You to the Real Border


This Cheesarito is basically a cheese burrito with some yummy sauce in it.

To get the actual Cheesarito, I asked them to throw in a little onion they call scallions, and same taco sauce they use on their Mexican Pizza.

Verdict: I liked it. It was warm and gooey and had a little kick to it. If you like enchiladas, you’ll like this as it reminded me of a cheese enchilada wrapped up in burrito form.

Chicken Bacon Ranch Gordita Crunch

This bad boy is both a mouthful to say and eat.

To get it, you just order a Cheesy Gordita Crunch and substitute the regular taco shell with the ranch shell.

Then ask for chicken as your protein and all the sudden you have a party in your mouth “border burger” style.

Verdict: Unfortunately, the Taco Bell I was at didn’t have any ranch taco shells.

Chili Cheese Burrito

Also known as a Chilitto, this is a bean and cheese burrito, but instead of refried beans, they’ll use chili beans.

The bonus of beef in the chili is what makes this sucker a winner in my book.

Verdict: Good stuff, but I’m a big “whole bean chili guy”, especially over refried beans, so it was right up my alley.

Twice Crispy Quesadilla

You can ask for ANY type of Quesadilla to be “Crispy” or “Well Done”.

What comes out is an amazing creation with a slight, yet DELICIOUS, crust on it.

Verdict: I had my daughter try this one as she loves their quesadillas. She said it was NOT any more crispy than the regular quesadilla, so there’s a good chance employees won’t double crisp yours either.

Doritos Locos Crunch Wrap Supreme

Get the right Taco Bell employee and they’ll hook you up with this beauty.

It’s created when they put a Doritos shell inside the crunch wrap and the end result is supposedly out of this world.

Verdict: I haven’t tried this one yet, but it’s definitely on my short list.


The Enchirito is half burrito, half enchilada and sounds ridiculously awesome.

Order it by name and you’ll get a beef and bean burrito, smothered in red sauce, then topped off with melted cheese.

When I recently ordered it, they did NOT know it by name and I had to explain what it was which was a bummer.

So I broke it down by ordering, “a Burrito Supreme with extra beef and cheese. Then I asked them to put red sauce, nacho cheese sauce and blended cheese on top and heat it up real quick.”

The two employees were awesome and had fun with it and I gave them a nice tip for helping me out.

Verdict: Not gonna lie, the Enchirito was darn good and reminded me of wet chimichanga that you would order at a Mexican restaurant.

It’s definitely a bit of hassle to order but I’d probably do it again if they’re not super busy.

The Hulk

Think “green” and order a bean and cheese burrito, then add guacamole to it for a cool avocado surprise.

Guac on pretty much anything is a winner in my book.

Plus, it was be fun to order just to see the reaction of “burrito artist” behind the counter.

Verdict: It was decent. Let’s be honest here, the guacamole at Taco Bell ain’t real authentic and is more of a sauce than a fresh avocado treat, so everything in the burrito just melted together.

The extra cost of the guacamole wasn’t worth it in my opinion.

The Incredible Hulk

Take it a step further and order “The Incredible Hulk.”

If they have no idea what the hell you’re talking about, just tell them you want a Beefy 5-layer burrito but instead of the nacho cheese, ask for guacamole.

Also, I’ve heard of folks telling them to leave out the inner tortilla but I’m not sure why you’d want to do that, especially if you’re a starving college student.

Verdict: Meh…the flavors, gooeyness, and sauces all kind of melted together on this burrito, I really didn’t taste much guacamole.

I think it would be BETTER to leave in the nacho cheese and have them add guacamole in addition, I might try that next time.


This bad boy was on a bunch of Taco Bell menus as recent as 2014.

And guess what? Many locations will still throw one together for you and it’ll still be in the ordering system.

The Quesarito is 50% burrito, 50% quesadilla, and 100% awesome.

It’s basically a cheese quesadilla folded up like a burrito with all of your favorite burrito fillings inside.

Verdict: This was a winner. I went with a 7-layer burrito as my center piece and a cheese quesadilla wrapped around it.

It was BIG and very filling, and messy, you’ll need a lot of napkins for this one.

Spicy Bacon Tostada

In case the regular Spicy Tostada wasn’t tasty enough, try adding bacon to it.

You can thank me later for this yummy Taco Bell secret menu item. No really, you will.

Verdict: Haven’t tried this one yet, didn’t sound very exciting as Taco Bell bacon can’t be great.

The Superman

While I doubt the Man of Steel would ever order this, it sounds really yummy, especially if you’re hungry and ready to get your grub on.

It’s a 5-layer Beefy burrito, then add the kitchen sink.

The kitchen sink in this example means potatoes, guac, sour cream, and even tortilla chips.

It basically becomes a 9-layer burrito and is not for the faint of heart (or stomach).

Verdict: I’m waiting for when I’m super hungry to give The Superman a try.

Let me know in the comments if you’ve peeled off the Clark Kent glasses and dug into this burrito.

Waffle Taco

Taco Bell serves breakfast? Huh, who knew.

Order a Waffle Taco from their secret menu and get a waffle folded in half and stuffed with scrambled eggs, sausage, and drizzled with a little hot maple syrup.

Dang, that sounds like a really yummy way to break your fast.

I seriously doubt our local Taco Bell would even honor a “secret” menu. They will no longer make an Enchirito and even though they still have boxes, they refuse to make the nacho box!


I loved the Frito burrito, but they took it off the menu! However, if you ask for it, they will make it for you! Yeah
