Method of Preparation

  1. First, arrange all the ingredients that you need to prepare the dish. Now, you need to cook the meat.

  3. You can drain the excess oil before adding the taco seasoning. Then add some water, bring to boil and simmer for 1 or 2 minutes or until the meat becomes tender. Switch off the flame after the meat is fully cooked.  
  4. Fry two flour tortillas for about 30 seconds to make the quesalupa shell. Cook each side in a shallow pan with oil on medium heat.

If you feel the taco shells are brittle, then microwave them for a few seconds to soften them again. Once you fold it into the taco shape, feel free to bake it to make it sturdy again.

While Taco Bell is not real Mexican food it sure is TASTY!!! This location is one of the cleanest in Oakland County. Always tastes fresh. The staff - inside and at the drive-through - are very friendly.

I have not been here before, but I have been curious about the new item, the Quesalupa unveiled during the Super Bowl a short time ago. I ate one today. It was good but not one of my favorite items in their menu. I don't think I will try it again. I prefer other things here much better like the crunchy tacos and the Mexican pizzas. Service was good and the price reasonable.

Naked Chalupa

Just stopped by Taco Bell for a quick bite. The counter hostess recommended the new Naked Chalupa, so I decided to give it a try. Delicious! It was freshly prepared which I'm sure made it even better. Think of a taco where the shell is chicken breast. The salsa has a bit of a bite, but not too hot. I had it as a combo "box" with two soft tacos and a drink. Not a bad deal at all.

Review: Taco Bell - Breakfast Quesalupa

Overall, I liked all the flavors of the Breakfast Quesalupa and really enjoyed the extra textures that the new cheese-stuffed shell provided. It would be somewhat nice if either the bacon or potatoes turned out crispy though.


I would not mind it at all if they were to double stuff the Quesalupa shell and sell it as a fried quesadilla (maybe they could call it the "Chimichanga Quesadilla").
