Although it’s too early to say if the Steak and Bacon Grilled Cheese Burrito will become a permanent menu item at Taco Bell, the success story of the Grilled Cheese Burrito may provide some hope. The Grilled Cheese Burrito finally became a permanent menu item earlier this year after being introduced to Taco Bell menus in 2020 and appearing on and off the menu for some time. Whereas the original Grilled Cheese Burrito contains seasoned ground beef, rice, and Fiesta Strips (slivered tortilla strips) the Steak and Bacon Grilled Cheese Burrito adds to it with hefty steak and crispy bacon.
Both versions of the burrito have grilled, crisped cheese on the outside. That feature arguably helped carry the Grilled Cheese Burrito all the way to the permanent menu and paved the way for upgraded variations. There are currently four types of Grilled Cheese Burritos on the Taco Bell menu, but with bacon bits grilled into the cheese and fluffy potatoes, the steak and bacon variety is the most unique. Fans can try it for $5.99 at some locations, but prices may vary.
