Taco Bell Announces the Return of Beefy Potato-rito
After briefly removing it from their menu, Taco Bell brought potatoes back this year. Recently, Taco Bell announced in a press release that the Beefy Potato-rito will be returning to the restaurant’s menu on April 15th. Also, the potato-filled burrito will only cost a dollar when it returns. The returning burrito is made with Taco Bell’s popular crispy potatoes, which are wrapped in a flour tortilla with seasoned beef, nacho cheese sauce and a creamy Chipotle sauce. While it won’t officially return to menus until April 15th, members of Taco Bell’s rewards program can get early access to the Beefy Potato-rito.
Taco Bell brought potatoes back to its menu on March 11 of this year, after restructuring its menu in 2020 to accommodate for more drive-thru-friendly items amid the coronavirus pandemic. One of the changes was the removal of all potato items — a move that was not met with praise from many of the chain’s vegetarian and vegan customers along with many meat-eating customers who still loved a good potato.
