Taco Bell is testing out a few new creative menu options across new categories including wraps that cater to the lunch crowd and flatbreads.
The cheesy chipotle chicken flatbread is being tested in the Charlotte, N.C. market and is made with chicken, chipotle sauce, tortillas strips, onion and a three-cheese blend atop a flatbread for $3.99 (customers can also customize the flatbread by adding jalapenos for an added kick).
Unlike the beloved Mexican pizza — which is being added permanently to the Taco Bell menu after a pandemic-era hiatus — pizza-esque entrée uses a thin-crust flatbread instead of a tortilla, so it seems much closer to pizza than its cult-classic cousin.
Taco Bell is also testing the new grilled Lunchwrap — available in three different varieties in the menu category — in select stores in the Atlanta region. Here’s a breakdown of what the wraps will look like, available in a range of prices from $4.99 to $8.79, depending on whether you get it as a la carte or a combo:
- Southwest Grilled Lunchwrap: Choice of marinated and grilled chicken or steak, Southwest ranch sauce, lettuce, three-cheese blend, tomatoes and fiesta strips in a flour tortilla
- Chicken Bacon Club Grilled Lunchwrap: Made with marinated and grilled chicken, avocado ranch sauce, creamy chipotle sauce, lettuce, guacamole, bacon, three-cheese blend and tomatoes in a flour tortilla
- Steak Chipotle Ranch Grilled Lunchwrap: Made with marinated and grilled steak, avocado ranch sauce, creamy chipotle sauce, lettuce, three-cheese blend and tomatoes in a flour tortilla
Besides these new menu items, Taco Bell is also testing $2 nachos in Columbus, Oh.; the crispy melt taco in Alabama (featuring the brand’s new proprietary plant-based protein), and the mango whip freeze drink and double steak grilled cheese burrito are being added to menus nationally.
