  • The Crispanada was originally tested in Tennessee

While we all have our usual orders at our favorite fast food places, it is always fun to see new items added to the menu to add some variety. It is even more intriguing when it is a limited-time item, adding some urgency to try it before it is too late. And that is exactly the case with the new Taco Bell Crispanada that was added to their menu just last week.

Taco Bell’s Cheesy Chicken Crispanada

The Cheesy Chicken Crispanada was rolled out onto Taco Bell menus nationwide on February 15. It had received positive feedback from test locations in Tennessee in 2023 that left the rest of the country feeling jealous.

The response was so enthusiastic that Taco Bell decided they had to share the new menu item with the entire nation! As the name suggests, the Taco Bell Crispanada is a modernized twist on the classic empanada, which is traditionally a fried turnover typically stuffed with ground beef, potatoes, and peas in a variety of seasonings.

New Spin On Favorite Dish

The Taco Bell Crispanada adds a new spin on this favorite dish, giving customers a crispy crunchy golden shell filled with a blend of chicken, melted cheeses, and a variety of Mexican spices.

Taco Bell is so convinced you will love this, that they made it one of their announcements at their inaugural Live Mas LIVE event that was held in Las Vegas.

Reasonable Pricing

To tempt you even further, you can enjoy this delicious-looking new treat for only $3.49.

We all no doubt remember the craziness involved in trying to get a taste of Szechuan sauce when it was brought back at some fast food companies years ago. Some customers wound up hoarding the sauce and price gouging others into paying exorbitant amounts just for a packet.

Fortunately, you probably do not have to worry about any rabid Rick and Morty fans buying up all the Taco Bell Crispanadas and leaving you to pay a fortune just to try one.

Just For A Limited Time

However, like far too many good things in life, the Taco Bell Crispanada will not be around forever. As stated, this is a limited-time menu item. And while it was popular in its test run in Tennessee, you can never guarantee that a beloved menu item will return. So if you want to see what all the fuss is about, now is the time to grab one before it is too late.

In High Demand?
