Taco Bell’s Grilled Breakfast Burritos features scrambled eggs , warm nacho cheese , and a choice of either sausage, bacon , or seasoned Fiesta potatoes and pico de gallo , wrapped up in a flour tortilla and grilled.
With a double portion of seasoned beef*, nacho cheese sauce, potato bites, and reduced fat sour cream wrapped inside a warm tortilla, the Cheesy Potato Burrito is a seriously filling item, not some kind of setup for dad’s popsicle stick humor.
A user with the flair “verified employee” wrote that the fast-food chain will be suspending “all potato items,” Quesaritos, Loaded Grillers, Triple Layer Nachos, Nachos Supreme, Beefy Frito Burritos, and other menu items starting in mid-August. – Potato bites are staying, but for BREAKFAST ONLY.
The fast-food chain announced on Friday that it is removing 12 items from its menu, including fan favorites such as Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes , Nachos Supreme, and Loaded Grillers. Quesaritos are going to be cut from restaurants’ menus, but will remain available for order online and in the chain’s app.
I asked two employees at Taco Bell these questions and found out that yes, it is real cheese, and yes, they do use real eggs (VERY different than many other fast few chains that use egg beaters). The eggs come in a plastic bag, frozen, and are put into hot water for 35-40 minutes to warm them up.

To date, the popular fast-food chain has relied on traditional vegetarian standbys such as beans and potatoes . Last year the brand decided to make it easier for non-meat eaters to order at its locations by rolling out a vegetarian menu.
Taco Bell will remove the Mexican pizza, pico de gallo and shredded chicken – Shredded Chicken Soft Taco, Shredded Chicken Burrito and Shredded Chicken Quesadilla Melt – as of Nov. 5.
As for the latest round of changes, Taco Bell claimed there were several other reasons why it’s saying adios to the five items. Getting rid of the Mexican Pizza , for example, is part of the company’s eco-friendly commitment: Packaging for the item amounts to more than 7 million pounds of paperboard per year.
Items being eliminated include: Grilled Steak Soft Taco, 7-Layer Burrito , Quesarito (in-store only; it can be around via the web or app), Nachos Supreme , Beefy Fritos Burrito , Spicy Tostada ,Triple Layer Nachos , Spicy Potato Soft Taco , Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes, Loaded Grillers (both cheesy potato and beefy nacho ), Mini
