Review: Cantina Steak Burrito!

Last week the Dailybuzz Tastemaker Program asked me if I wanted to review Taco Bell’s new Cantina Steak Burrito and write about it on That’s so Michelle.

Um hello, does a pregnant lady want to try a burrito? That’s an easy one. Yes. Yes I do.

So here are my thoughts; it’s different than anything I have tried from Taco Bell before and I actually liked it.

I have ordered their Fresco Grilled Steak Soft Taco before when I needed a quick lunch that was low calorie (it only has 160 calories and it’s not bad). But the steak in this new Cantina burrito is really, really good. It is soft and fresh tasting with good flavor.

I also noticed that the corn is really grilled. They aren’t just saying that. You can see the grill marks on it and the flavors are all there.

I also really liked the fresh pico de gallo. I even ordered an extra side of it to put more on my taco. (You can order sides of pico and guac now at Taco Bell, definite upgrade)

After I was done I didn’t feel like I had eaten something packed with sodium and cheese. It wasn’t sitting in my tummy like a brick either. I felt like I ate something fresh with rice and veggies and protein. Check the toasty marks on the top of the tortilla too. Yum.

My only criticism was that it was HUGE. That might be good for some people but I gave the other half to my husband.

(Sorry for the delay on my posts guys, I’ve been super busy at work and with doctors appointments and Nick was sick this weekend. Time slipped away. Tomorrow I will have a recipe post for a Blood Orange Sangria and a new baby bump picture. Promise. )

This post is sponsored by Taco Bell. See how great our steak is when you try the new Cantina Steak Burrito. Because when it comes to a great steak burrito, it’s all about the steak.

      Their website says it only has 580 calories (hmmm maybe I should put this in the post) so since I only had half (and had some extra pico) 300 calories for lunch is pretty darn good! 🙂 I think we could even do the whole thing if we were feeling super hungry. But it’s HUGE! haha

    hmmm, i should have looked at the website first…that’s really not bad even for the whole thing (given the size)…i might have looked at the wrong thing. the first thing i saw said 750 calories with 28g of fat…i couldn’t swing that.

    It’s weird that on they have the veggie burrito listed as 740 calories and the steak at 580 calories. How is that possible?

    PS – I totally got my first cantina burrito after reading this (ate half also). Great post! 🙂

      Hmmmm that is weird. I might have to go investigate that. Crossing my fingers that it’s the lower calorie count. Ha! 🙂
