Review: Taco Bell Naked Chicken Chalupa

How do I know the new Taco Bell Naked Chicken Chalupa (released January 26, 2017) is actually THAT GOOD?

Well, let’s take a step back in time to when Taco Bell introduced their breakfast menu. 

I am a huge Taco Bell fan, so I thought it would be fun to bring in an assortment of Taco Bell breakfast items to the office when the menu launched.  I brought in the Waffle Taco (RIP Waffle Taco), breakfast tacos, AM Crunchwraps, and the Cinnabon Delights (which are amazing by the way).

So I got about $50 of Taco Bell breakfast for the office which accounts for A LOT of Taco Bell, and the only thing that was gone were those Cinnabon Delights, and everything else was just kind of poked and picked at (like eating the bacon or sausage out of the taco but not eating the eggs, if you know what I mean). 

So was the Taco Bell breakfast successful?  Eh.  I mean, I haven’t been back to eat it since that day.

Sooooo while I didn’t have high hopes for this Taco Bell Naked Chicken Chalupa, I was super excited to try it and bring some to the office (and FYI Foodbeast I saw you had a launch party for the Naked Chicken Chalupa, and I want to be invited to the next major TBell launch party you have).

I got 8 of the Taco Bell Naked Chicken Chalupas for the office, which I already thought was too many since I didn’t expect people to like it, but I decided to go for it anyway. 

And WOAH!!  Not only did I think the Naked Chicken Chalupa was delicious, but ALL of the Naked Chicken Chalupas I brought to the office were gone.  So that should tell you something.

Ok, now for a description of the taco.  It’s a thin breaded chicken patty shaped like a taco shell.  Not as greasy as you’d actually think (and it had a crunch to it).

The bottom of the taco is covered with an avocado ranch sauce, which combats any of the dryness from the chicken taco shell.  Then it’s topped with lettuce, tomato and cheese.  But seriously.  That avocado ranch sauce needs to be on everything they serve at Taco Bell.

  • Try the Taco Bell Naked Chicken Chalupa – it’s actually really good, the chicken shell keeps you full compared to tacos with Taco Bell’s questionable beef, and that avocado ranch sauce…do I need to say anything more?
