Taco Bell is most known for its wild creations that bring people in mostly out of curiosity, and so they have a story to tell about what they just ate.
So by their standards, the Crispy Chicken Quesadilla is a pretty tame entry in their line of new creations. A standard chicken quesadilla, but with breaded pieces of chicken instead of the regular chicken they use in the standard edition.
At first glance before you start to tear into the meal you would never know that there was any difference in this crispy quesadilla and the regular one.
And really, once you bite in you can’t taste much of a difference either. The crispy part mostly gets drown out by the liquid and melted cheese they use to stuff the inside. But once you get past that part and get to pieces that haven’t been covered in cheese, you can taste a notable difference. It’s the chicken “chips” they released earlier, which are pretty good, and obviously, work well in a quesadilla.
Really, the simplest way I can sum up the experience is this: If you like the original chicken quesadilla, you will like this. The chicken is slightly different and at times adds a bit of crunch and a bit of extra flavor, but it’s nothing that stands out or is must-have by other crazy Taco Bell creations.
The best part of the Crispy Chicken Quesadilla is the deal that it comes with. For $5 you get the quesadilla, a regular taco, a Doritos Locos Taco, and a medium drink. That’s a lot of food and a pretty good deal.
So to sum up, it’s a good deal, and if you like regular chicken quesadillas, you will like this.
