First, some history:
This behemoth came out about five years ago and at that time, it seemed like a good idea. Take a quesadilla and merge it with a chalupa. Sort of like a deep-fried taco shell with cheese baked into it. Then came time to try it and boy, that thing did not live up to the hype. It was too greasy and not enough cheese to come close to what the promotional photos were promising.
Welcome back to 2021, where things are getting better. Taco Bell decided to re-release the Quesalupa and this time 50% more cheese! Well, I am here to tell you that 50% of nothing is still nothing. JK. There was definitely more cheese, but I can’t really tell you if it qualified as 50% more. It seems to combine with the shell in such a way, that the flavor is there, but the texture is gone.
This is definitely better than what I remember from five years ago, but I still don’t like the overwhelming oil flavor. I think they could mask that a bit by putting on some sort of delicious sauce instead of their garbage reduced fat sour cream. I loaded it up with fire sauce, which did the double duty of destroying both the oil flavor and my butthole. 😈
While it is not the best thing ever, I will probably have another one before it goes away again. Maybe I’ll customize it with a better sauce, because that might elevate it to a higher level. 🌮
