Taco Bell to add Crispy Tortilla Chicken strips to menu amid Popeyes' Chicken Sandwich popularity

November 20, 2019

"Move over Popeyes, there’s a new fried chicken offering in town, and it’s from Taco Bell.


The megachain known for tacos and burritos – and, recently, for pureed chicken taquitos – has announced its latest out-of-the-box culinary innovation: the chicken strip.


The new Crispy Tortilla Chicken menu item, which the brand describes as “the ultimate Taco Bell twist” on a classic, features all-white-meat chicken dunked in a jalapeno buttermilk marinade before being breaded with a “crunchy tortilla chip coating.”


The strips are then served with the chain’s “new signature dipping sauce” — the flavor of which was not immediately shared in a press release, but appears to be an orangey sauce akin to nacho cheese. (A similar sauce was provided with the chain's Naked Chicken Chips – a.k.a chicken nuggets – upon that item's debut.)"

Who's Behind The Site

My name is Blake and I've eaten at Taco Bell throughout my whole life, becoming an avid fan about 6 years ago. I've had every vegetarian applicable item that has come out since 2014. In 2015, I spent 8 months working at a Taco Bell (in between jobs). My high school graduation party was in a Taco Bell and I have a cameo in the famous "senior pictures at Taco Bell" (the guy taking the order)

In these past years I've built up this site to be the home base for all other Taco Bell fans and have built a growing community through Reddit and other social media platforms. My main goal is to keep a strong community of consumers informed and together with our appreciation for the brand.


A life goal of mine is to visit the Taco Bell HQ and meet the people who work hard to make this chain so great, then continue to work with them on events and promotions to make people happy.

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy the site!
