Had this for lunch today, it was awful. Too many beans made the chicken taste not show through. The crunch strips were too and far between to even make any sort of impact. Pass.

it was ok, i had steak, maybe your ingredients werent mixed right, like the 7 layer burritos where the 7 layers are all stacked so you go through them individualy

This burrito was another fine edition of Taco Bell Craps where they roll "the dice of ingredients" and mix whatever comes up. We got burritoes, we have grillers, put them together what do you get? a grilled stuffed burrito! We have crunchies we put in our chicken salads, and nacho cheese, let's throw them in there too, oh yeah! Some times the dice are winners, sometimes like this one, not so much. Two beany, crunchies don't take long to become soggies, even with steak it's hard to distinguish ingredients, and Taco Bell should seriously consider replacing its nacho cheese with real cheese that has substance and melts when heated on everything it sells.

This thing sucks. By the time I got home and ate it, they weren't crunchy at all. And yes, too many beans. Guess you can't win 'em all.

Had the steak version today. There was no crunch. I saw them in there, but they weren't crunchy anymore. For a burrito from Taco Bell its fine, but it was nothing special.

Finally got my review online.

I agree with some of your other comments, there was hardly any meat in there and I can see how the crunch can be un-crunched in a short time.

Wow...I loved it. I ordered the chicken, and happen to like the beans at taco bell, so having a generous amount seemed like a good thing to me! The strips wouldn't have broken a tooth or anything, but they still had a bit of crunchy quality to them.
I agree totally with the 7-layer comment. Usually I get to the part where it is just a big mouthful of that mystery guacamole or sour cream and decide to eat around it or throw it away.
I like the nacho crunch burrito, though. And hey, those grill marks and "seared" outside...gotta count for something, right? ;)
