Del Taco Shredded Beef Combo Burrito

A trend with fast food Mexican restaurants lately is to take the standard ingredients and combine them together in what is often called a “combo” item.  Combo burritos are the most common, taking up permanent residence at both Taco Bell and Del Taco.  I guess “combo” is better than that other more hip term “mash up” which doesn’t sound very good when applied to food.

Doesn’t that look delicious?  OK, maybe getting a “beauty shot” of the interior of a burrito isn’t as easy as it is with burgers.  Must be a real challenge to food stylists.  Anyway, this Shredded Beef Combo Burrito from Del Taco is just what you’d expect: shredded beef, beans, cheese and sauce.  The hook here is that Del Taco doesn’t normally have shredded beef.  So this is a “limited time” promotional item.  At $2.99, this is considered a premium burrito.  It was exactly what you’d expect a meaty, beany burrito to taste like.  I did find it dry however, despite the default sauce and my addition of 2 packets of Medium (Del Scorcho) sauce.  Nevertheless, a good alternative to the normal burrito offerings for frequent Del Taco visitors.
