IRVINE, Calif. — Calling all Taco Bell fans!

The Beefy Crunch Burrito is making a comeback this summer at Taco Bell locations nationwide.

Its return comes after the fast food chain held a vote to resurrect either the Beefy Crunch Burrito or the Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco. Taco Bell declared the burrito as the contest winner on Thursday morning with its limited return coming in early August.

“Fans first discovered their love for this iconic burrito when it was welcomed to menus in 2010,” according to Taco Bell. “It quickly became a fan favorite across the nation and, although it was officially removed from menus in 2011, it made multiple returns as a limited time offer until 2018.”

POV: You voted and now the Beefy Crunch Burrito returns in early August.

The Beefy Crunch Burrito features seasoned beef, Flamin’ Hot Fritos, reduced-fat sour cream, seasoned rice and nacho cheese sauce.

“Through revival moments along the years, these limited-time cheesy, crunchy bites have sustained a committed and growing community of cult fans so passionate that it has spiraled into its own movement,” Taco Bell says. “Created by the burrito’s biggest fan, Richard Axton, the Beefy Crunch Movement has inspired a community of over 66,000 followers and counting dedicated to bringing back their ultimate Taco Bell craving.”

The Cool Rand Doritos Locos Taco, meanwhile, first launched in 2013 before it was removed from the menu in 2019.
