Chilli-cheese burrito. The musical would have an oversized horn section.

I repeat my puzzlement over the supposed popularity of something that is essentially a tostada.

I like Dolly, too, but her endorsement of a tostada means very little to me.

I just asked about this in the other Taco Bell Mexican pizza thread.

Then I googled it, found this article, and submitted it.  ;)

It was better when it had green onions.

Is Mexican Pizza the new McRib or sumpin'? It seems to be everywhere lately.

Is the angle here that it's stupid of Taco Bell to call a tostada a "Mexican pizza"?

A medium Pepsi is $1.08 between 2-5 p.m., seven days a week.

Sigh.

Here's how it works. Taco Bell has only so many ingredients. So, they can make only so many items. The Mexican pizza is just a flat taco. And is sort of gross.

The Chilli-cheese Burrito, on the other hand, requires the addition of one new ingredient. And (many) Taco Bells can't be bothered.,

The taco pizza was invented in the Quad Cities by the owner of Happy Joe's. Very good pizza but unfortunately the original owner is very anti-choice.

Right. Most of the Taco Bell menu is the same thing, just in different shapes. Look carefully in the kitchen area nest time you're in one. You may see a poster on the wall showing the kitchen staff how to assemble each item. It has a grid showing which of their limited selection of ingredients goes in which item.

I guess this is to be expected. You'll never find a theater with a bathroom for every patron.

Its the only thing on the menu food like, and then it was gone.

That's funny. There was a happy Joe's in my small town. One side was a wood paneled pizzeria, the other some kind of weird ragtime ice cream shop. My friend Matt was having dinner with his parents one day when they confronted him about having found Playboys in his room. 

That's not so happy, Joe. 

The funny thing was that he kept them hidden in a Domino's Pizza box he had pinned to the wall.

They got rid of the $1 beef burrito. Haven't gone back since.

The Mexican Pizzas don't use the same kind of shell as their tacos.  Their tostadas did but those are long gone.  The pizzas are fried in the store while the tacos come pre-fried.  They also have a different sauce on top that isn't used for anything else.  So that's two unique ingredients, plus the packaging.

The chili cheese burritos, on the other hand, just have one unique ingredient.  The chili sauce, which is just a powder mixed with hot water and some of their ground beef added to it.

Would have been simpler to bring them back than the pizzas, but more people were clamoring for the pizzas.

/ and yes, they don't look quite right without the green onions
// bring back the green onions you cowards

Also many of them don't have a choice.  If they're corporate owned they have to follow the official menu to the letter, with no deviations.  If they're a franchise owned store they do have some leeway.  There was one not far from my house that had the chili cheese burritos for a while.  They over charged for them a bit but they were every bit as good as I remembered.

A  mexican pizza is a tostada stacked on top of another tostada.

While I'm not a fan of Taco Bell (Taco Time is far superior, IMHO), I do like their Mexican Pizza. T2 doesn't have anything remotely close.
 
2022-05-26 4:30:21 PM  
Delayed in light of what recent events? They don't say.
 
2022-05-26 4:32:57 PM  
I have worked at a taco bell. Yes, the chili is just powder, hot water, and beef. But if you can, try to get a platter of their fries, and have them add chili and nacho cheese. Best damn chili cheese fries I've ever had, by far.

/Mexican pizzas suck.
//The refried beans are disgusting.

Technically, no.  Tostadas are generally made from corn.  The Mexican pizza shells are made from flour.

I liked to use the word "mucho" as much as I could with my Hispanic co-workers. I know they appreciated it, it meant a lot to them.

If World War III came and went and I was stuck in a wasteland were my dinner choices were a)bubonic plague infested dried-up rat carcasses or b)fresh Taco bell tacos, I would seriously consider a).

Everyone at my daughter's store hated hearing about the pizza being back and hates it even more having to make it.  They keep selling out, too.  Just not the same, though, without the green onions and black olives.

Still, much better with beans and no "meat".  Because that's not meat.

Isn't Mexican Pizza always musical after a few minutes anyways?

Obviously a taco truck would be superior.  But unfortunately the whole "taco trucks on every corner" thing never happened so not everyone has access to one.

Earthworm Jim Jones: [people who get diarrhea from Taco Bell are weak]


There are a lot of people who don't seem to eat a lot of fiber.  (How?  Things like bread and cereal have fiber, are they on some weird keto thing?)  Taco Bell's foodlike items often contain beans, which have more fiber than a lot of things.  If you don't eat much fiber, and you suddenly shove beans into your pie hole, your unprepared intestines will go into poop overdrive.

Also it seems weird to write a musical about a food item.  I say this as someone who paid actual money to see "Cannibal: The Musical" at one point.

Two tostadas that are face to face.  It's like two food items that spend their final moments in a loving embrace as you eat them.  It's farking beautiful.

harshing on taco bell is low hanging fruit perpetuated by people that think 'in and out' is a great burger.

taco is great.
the mexican pizza was/is great.
 
2022-05-26 6:03:34 PM  
The Mexican pizza could have been good, but the only time I ever ordered it, it was disgusting, not cause of the combination of ingredients, but rather I think the store had never changed the fryer oil. It was a gift that kept on giving, with ever burp.
If you like the chilli cheese burrito and happen to be in Michigan, the taco bell in Ithaca has them.
Probably one of the most disappointing things was when the company decided to ditch the onions/olives instead of bringing them back after the food poisoning outbreak. I'm not even sure either were found to be the cause, but you can be sure they liked charging the same price for less.

The beef meximelts, which they don't carry any longer, were the best thing on the menu, though way overpriced.

At the time that is what pissed me off the most about the last election. I was promised if one candidate won there would be taco trucks on every corner. I live on a corner lot, if I could walk out to my front yard and get a taco whenever I wanted I would be in heaven.

There is a problem in that a lot of users only read the first 50ish (probably only the first 30ish) comments in any given thread because modern people have an attention span of SQUIRREL!  This means that good comments that show up late (like the dehydrated beans story) are often ignored.  I try to give them some love when they're relevant (as above).  Also, it's time for gyros, which are not Mexican pizzas, but are delicious.  Keep reaching for the stairs!

As alluded to in the Boobies, "Mexican Pizza, The Musical" happens after you eat one.

/ Had one a few days ago

You're really arguing against all of Taco Bell, not one offering.

i do really wish affordable taco trucks existed near me.  But they don't.

Delay on Mexican Pizza?  I'll just waltz over to McDonalds and listen to the sounds of The Ice Cream Machine Blues.
