Re:Taco Bell is launching a "gourmet" menu!?
Yes, they did replace their regular chicken with the new citrus marinated chicken and that was a corp decision, talk to them. The cilantro rice is a NEW 2 nd rice that only comes in the new cantina menu items. The regular Mexican Rice will still be available. I've already tasted some of the new items and the cilantro rice and the creamy cilantro dressing are very mild and the cilantro taste is almost non-existent.
The new cantina menu will feature the following items: a cantina bowl (steak, chicken or vegetarian), a cantina burrito (a burrito version of the bowl). These items are mad up of the cilantro rice, black beans, choice of chicken, steak, or no meat at all, romaine lettuce, cilantro dressing, guacamole, pico de gallo & roasted corn salsa, a black bean burrito, and a side of black beans & cilantro rice ( in one container).
The REGULAR Taco Bell menu will also be available and is not going anywhere. The only difference with that menu is the change of the chicken, and the recipe change of the guacamole and fiesta salsa which will be re-named pico de gallo.
