Taco Bell's Quesalupa - A Review

According to Taco Bell, the Quesalupa is a cross between a Chalupa and a Quesadilla.  The creation comes in beef, chicken, steak, sausage, and bacon varieties.  The fact they distinguish between beef and steak makes me wonder what kind of steak it is.  Yes, I know they mean hamburger or steak, but that's not how they word it.

In any case, I had the basic (ground) beef option for $2.99.  The dish is comprised of two tortillas which have been stuffed with jack cheese and deep fried into the shape of a taco shell.  Then the shell is filled with lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, seasoned ground beef, and sour cream.

It tasted like a Chalupa or flat bread taco.  With crisp lettuce, fresh tasting tomatoes, and tangy sour cream it was a good Chalupa or flat bread taco, but that's what it was.  Diners expecting mass quantities of stringy cheese will be disappointed.  I got a few bites of standard jack (not pepper jack as Taco Bell's site claims) near the center of the dish, but there was so little cheese it was almost an after thought, rather than a main feature.

At $2.99, the Quesalupa is an expensive miss.  One can get a Chalupa Supreme for $2.49, or score a Double Decker Taco Supreme for $2.29, and not miss anything.  I give Taco Bell's Quesalupa 6 out of 10 stars. Eh....
