Taco Bell is said to be bringing back one of its most popular menu items that was dropped in 2020. Fans have been begging Taco Bell to bring back Mexican pizza for over a year now, and it looks like they’ll make it happen. Food blogger Markie_devo announced on his Instagram page that the beloved menu item will return to Taco Bell’s menus in April or May 2022.
The Mexican pizza—made of seasoned ground beef and refried beans sandwiched between two “shell pizzas,” then topped with diced tomatoes, a three-cheese blend, and spicy pizza sauce—became a cult following soon after its 1985 introduction to the taco. bell list. When pizza was removed from the menu in November 2020, customers were angry and hopeful since its return.
Plus, Taco Bell could go further, potentially developing some new and improved versions of Mexican pizza. According to food blogger Living Mas, this includes a “double cheese” version, a spicy chorizo version, and a bacon version. The candy version also appears to be a possibility.
Mexican Pizza 2.0 will also be shipped in a new rack, as the original unsustainable packaging was one of the main reasons it was canceled in the first place. “We know some fans might be sad to see this one, and so are we,” Taco Bell said of the Mexican pizza when it was discontinued. “One of the good things about saying goodbye to Mexican pizza that might help you rest easy is that removing them from our menus helps us live up to our commitment to leave a lighter footprint on our planet. Mexican pizza wrappers are currently worth over £7 million. Cardboard annually in the US “
Along the same lines, the company recently announced a set of new philosophies aimed at making a positive impact on employees, diners, and the planet. The company’s 2022 commitments to employees include a number of commitments such as “removing barriers to education,” “improving access to quality jobs” and “addressing racial equality and managing change.” The company aims to reduce packaging waste, claiming on its website that despite attracting 42 million customers each week, less than 3% of Taco Bell’s food is wasted. However, NPR reports that more than 8 billion bags of ketchup go to landfill each year. The restaurant has begun to address this issue through the TerraCycle Hot Sauce Sachet Recycling Program, and is currently testing the windowless Quesadilla bag in San Francisco and hopes to begin using it in other markets in 2022, according to a statement from the company.
