Taco Bell has announced that it is dropping Mexican Pizza from its menu along with other items in a menu revamp.
The new ‘streamlined menu’ is intended for a faster restaurant experience and will make room for new menu items.
“We’re constantly evaluating ways to provide a more efficient restaurant experience, and have already begun to see progress from streamlining our menu,” said Mike Grams, Taco Bell President, Global COO. “While we know fans may be understandably sad to see some of their favorites go, this evolution of our menu truly paves the way for fresh new ideas. The creativity and innovation in our kitchen hasn’t slowed down at all, and we look forward to rolling out new fan favorites.”
In July, Taco Bell announced 12 menu items that were being dropped including the Grilled Steak Soft Taco, 7-Layer Burrito, Quesarito, Nachos Supreme, Triple Layer Nachos, Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes, Loaded Grillers, and more.
The latest menu cuts include the Mexican Pizza, Pico de Gallo, and items that include shredded chicken such as the Shredded Chicken Soft Taco, Shredded Chicken Burrito, and Shredded Chicken Quesadilla Melt.
Taco Bell will be adding new items to the menu and testing out others. Here’s the new stuff from Taco Bell:
Chicken Chipotle Melt – Nationwide
A new permanent fixture on our Cravings Value Menu, featuring marinated all-white meat grilled chicken, creamy chipotle sauce, and cheddar cheese rolled and melted together. Fans can get their hands on the new $1* Chicken Chipotle Melt starting November 5.
Dragonfruit Freeze – Nationwide
Introducing Taco Bell’s new Dragonfruit Freeze, a tropical frozen beverage swirled with a burst of dragonfruit flavor, available nationwide starting September 24. To deliver on our contactless service, all Taco Bell freezes are now served with a flat lid.
Green Sauce – Regional
Did your local Taco Bell previously offer green sauce as an additional customization option? Our Food Innovation Team has spent time carefully crafting a new and improved recipe, now including flavors of fire roasted green chilies, pureed jalapeño and hatch green chiles to ensure it has an extra kick that pairs perfectly with any menu item. Green sauce will be returning to select markets nationwide starting November 5.
Quesalupa – Testing in Knoxville, TN
Our fan favorite Quesalupa is finally starting its journey back to menus nationwide next year, kicking off on September 24 with a test* in Knoxville, Tennessee. We’ve taken our classic chalupa shell and stuffed it with a cheese blend of real pepper jack and mozzarella so there is delicious melty cheese throughout.
