It's official: Taco Bell can do no wrong when it comes to Queso.
Per Brand Eating, the popular fast-food chain has debuted its new Queso as the superstar ingredient to its new Steakhouse Burrito and Steakhouse Nachos, which are limited-time menu offerings. After so long in the Tex-Mex game, our only question is, why didn't Taco Bell ever think of doing this before?
As of Nov. 17, the new cheese sauce became available nationwide, and can also come solo with some chips.
Mmm … chips and Queso.
The new cheese dip features all of the good stuff … we're talking fire-roasted green chilies, onions, jalapenos, tomatillos, cheese and a pinch of the spice -- cayenne. Brand Eating reports that the chain says it came up with over 20 different versions during a six-month-long experimental period before they settled on this particular Queso recipe.
It's "the perfect combination of sharp and creamy indulgence balanced with good spice and acidity from the peppers and spices."
The Steakhouse Burrito features "a double portion of grilled marinated steak, potato bites, bacon, sour cream, three-cheese blend, and queso wrapped up in a flour tortilla," according to Brand Eating, while the Steakhouse Nachos will instead get you a mega-large portion of crispy tortilla chips, which are then topped with "a double portion grilled marinated steak, queso sauce, pico de gallo, sour cream, refried beans, guacamole, and three cheese blend."
Our mouths are watering so much right now.
For $4.99 you can get a beef burrito, and for $5.79 you can opt for the version with chicken in it instead -- for $5.99, of course, you can treat yourself and get it with steak, although it should be noted that prices may vary from location to location.
The nachos will start at $5.19 for beef, increase to $5.99 for chicken and then finally land at $6.19 for the steak variety.
Chips and Queso are available for $1.29.
