The 7 Best Taco Bell Secret Menu Items—and How to Order Them

You heard it here first: the mysterious Taco Bell "secret menu" is not a myth.

As if our favorite fast food chain wasn't already hard enough to resist with all the classic and one-of-a-kind items on their actual menu, now we have even more mouthwatering menu mix-ups to try. There's something for everyone on this list of the best Taco Bell secret menu items, and we'll even let you in on the secret of how to order them. Let's kick it off with:

1. The Cheesarito

Ooey, gooey, zesty and ever-so-cheesy? The Cheesarito really has it all. What's more, this secret menu item is even vegetarian (but it's good enough for anyone to try)! To order it, you can probably just ask—it's commonly known as the most popular Taco Bell secret menu item—but if you're having trouble, just ask for a soft tortilla with melted cheese, scallions and taco sauce all rolled inside.

2. The Enchirito

This one is a lot easier on your tastebuds than it is to say, we promise. In fact, this secret menu item actually used to be on the real menu, but so many fans were forlorn when it was removed that a hack has been discovered for ordering it still. If the employees don't know what you mean when you ask for one, ask for an enchilada stuffed with beans, beef and cheese. It's that simple.


3. The Hulk

This Taco Bell secret menu item gets its name from one particularly Hulk-like ingredient: guacamole. A little of the good green stuff takes your regular old bean and cheese burrito to a superhero-worthy level, and it's even vegetarian, too. And yes, to order it, all you need to do is ask for the bean and cheese burrito with guac. Quick, easy and oh-so-delicious.


4. The Superman

Another item named after a superhero—but one that isn't so simple—is the Superman, which is a whopping combination of a double-beef burrito that's then loaded with:

  • Sour cream
  • Tortilla strips
  • Potatoes
  • Guacamole


5. Fresco Style

A favorite of vegans and health-conscious eaters on the go everywhere is the Fresco Style Taco Bell menu hack. We call it a hack rather than an item because what it really means is to just make your order vegan by removing any mayonnaise or cheese-based sauces and subbing any additional dairy products for pico. To make it your own, though, we recommend also subbing the beef or meat for beans in any of your favorite dishes.

6. Quesarito

This isn't just a secret menu item for Chipotle lover— you can get a Taco Bell version that's worth its weight in cheese, too. To ask for one of your own, just ask for a burrito wrapped in a cheese quesadilla, then add nacho cheese sauce (preferably on the side for perfect dipping capability).


7. Lava Sauce

And finally, lucky No. 7 on this list of the best Taco Bell secret menu items is the acclaimed and adored lava sauce. While it sadly left our menus in 2016, it never left our hearts—and it doesn't need to! It's a DIY menu item that's so easy to make it almost hurts: get a side of nacho cheese, then add two to three packets of fire sauce. Try it, and trust us. It might just change your life (or at least your next Taco Bell order).
