Today Taco Bell debuted the Naked Chicken Chalupa.
Even though I love Taco Bell, I don't usually go for their newer, gimmicky items.
I generally stick with classics and custom orders (soft taco sub grilled chicken, plus pico). And I'll be real, the idea of this thing grossed me out. CHICKEN SHOULD NOT BE FLAT. But I had to try it. So for lunch I walked over to tha' bell.
Here's how it looks in the package.
And here's how it looked in the flesh.
Here's a more aggressive shot of the contents.
It needs some Mild Sauce before I can dig in.
First bite, and, yo, this thing is pretty good.
Halfway through and honestly I am loving this.
At this point I noticed a notable spiciness. I'm not sure if it was the chicken itself or the avocado ranch sauce, but it was a welcome kick. Also, even without the sleeve, the chicken didn't make your hands greasy, which was a concern coming in. It was probably less greasy-feeling than a McDonald's nugget.
