For lunch today I decided to try out the Naked Chicken Chalupa from Taco Bell. Gotta say, it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. The idea of it reminded me of the double down from KFC and the idea of that makes my cholesterol rise. So I went in expecting a train wreck for lunch and grabbed the $5 box (since I'm fat) and was pleasantly surprised.
At first look I thought it was a taco shell, but from the name you can guess it wasn't. It was deep fried chicken patty folded like a taco with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and some kind of mystical sauce that sealed the deal for me. Seriously, after applying hot sauce and biting in the first thing I noticed was that sauce. It was creamy, amazing, and mystical at the same time. The chicken wasn't dry and didn't taste bad, but I couldn't get that sauce off of my mind.
Apparently this has been around before and is one of the revolving menu items Taco Bell has to keep it's menu fresh. It just somehow wasn't on my radar the last time it was around, but I'm going to have to try it again to make sure it's as good as I remember. Overall it's not as gross as it sounds. I would recommend it for something a little different if you're bored of the same ol' Taco Bell food.
