There’s a lot to love about Taco Bell. Cheap prices, delicious food, tons of locations across the country for whenever a craving for a Doritos Locos taco strikes, just to name a few.

But now, the fast-food chain is giving us yet another reason to visit ASAP: A grilled cheese burrito.

As the name suggests, this isn’t your regular run-of-the-mill burrito. No. In fact, it’s a pretty unique recipe. You see, the tortilla exterior is coated in a layer of melted grilled cheese that has been toasted to perfection and pressed into a burrito shape.

Inside, there’s also nacho cheese sauce and shredded cheese, you know, just in case the outside cheese wasn’t enough.

Taco Bell even went so far as to say that this burrito “radiates con-queso confidence.”

Got the new Grilled Cheese Burrito and a Cheesy Potato Griller from Taco Bell. The grilled cheese burrito was great! But the cheesy potato griller didn’t have enough cheese, was still good though. #grilledcheese #burrito #grilledcheeseburrito #tacobell #tacobellgrilledcheeseburrito #grilledcheeseburritotacobell #cheesypotatogriller

The cheesy flavors meld together with the burrito’s other star ingredients, including seasoned beef, rice, sour cream, chipotle sauce and red strips. Yum!

“The Grilled Cheese Burrito makes a statement that cheese is meant for literally everywhere.

While the world always seemed fine with confining cheese to inside a tortilla, this burrito wouldn’t be contained.

A world with more cheese in it is a good thing. And a world with more cheese on it is a game-changer.”

The company says the burrito is a limited-time menu option at some locations priced at $2.99.

Already, foodies across America are taking to their local Taco Bell to test out this new menu addition. Thrillist sent one of its writers to try it out and, overall, he was pretty impressed. He said it smelled exactly like a grilled cheese sandwich, which is enough to make our mouths start drooling instantly.

What could be better than two of our favorite foods combined into one glorious burrito?! Nothing. That’s what.

Would you consider trying this burrito? What’s your go-to Taco Bell order?

We’d love to hear from you!
