    I've got a soft spot for the Taco Bell chalupa. I don't know why I like 'em, but I do (probably comes from the fried packaged burritos that Little Louie's served in the 70's).

    So I ordered a chalupa, (didn't they used to use real sour cream? it tasted more like a salad dressing on the "supreme"), and a "side" of a volcano taco.

    The Volcano taco has a pinkish-red hard corn shell, about the color of a February tomato, and a slightly rancid flavor to it. As usual, the darn thing shatters into pieces upon first bite.

    The Volcano aspect comes from a spicy cheese sauce. It's spicy, in kind of a too-much-cayenne added way. Not good heat, like fresh habanero, more like a Flaming Cheetos way. Certainly not too hot to eat -- drinking was more needed to wash the taste away than to put out a fire.

    I won't order one of those again.

    I found the volcano taco to be surprisingly BLAND. I was expecting a "burn your mouth out" but it did not deliver.

    And I could make a more edible one using actual pumice and magma.

    I actually thought outside the bun last night. I went with the Chalupa Baja and a Gordita Supreme. Not a bad border run, all things considered.
    Cheetos are my favorite snack atm.

    Now they have Volcano Nachos. Has that same cheese sauce and pickled jalapenos. I doubt it's any hotter than the taco. Has the same blandness I'm sure.

    That's supposed to be "cheese" sauce? My brother got lunch a couple days ago and I couldn't detect any sort of cheese, even of the partially-plasticized variety in that sauce on the volcano taco. Definately not hot either, unless you're my 89 year-old grandma...the hottest part might be the redness of the taco shell. I am sadly a fan of their chalupas as well.

    Taco Bell is debuting its own custom wine, Jalapeño Noir, to pair with its Toasted Cheesy Chalupa. The tantalizing combination is only available for a limited time in Canada to celebrate the launch of the menu item.
