What is Taco Bell Grilled Cheese Dipping Taco?
The Grilled Cheese Dipping Taco features shredded beef – Taco Bell’s brand-new protein offering that took the fast-food chain almost two years to perfect. Inspired by the Mexican meat stew Birria, the shredded beef is slow-braised in a blend of spices.
Alongside the shredded beef, the new menu item is filled with a creamy jalapeño sauce and comes with a three-cheese blend of cheddar, mozzarella, and pepper jack that is melted on the inside and grilled on the outside of a freshly fried daily white corn tortilla shell. The taco shell is sure to tantalize taste buds with its creamy texture and bold flavors
Complementing the taco are two dips: warm nacho cheese sauce and Taco Bell’s zesty red sauce. Both dips are carefully calibrated to achieve the perfect consistency and harmony of flavors with every bite.
“The rich and spicy flavors often found in Birria were a major point of inspiration as we created the new Grilled Cheese Dipping Taco. By combining slow-braised shredded beef with the two dipping sauces, our fans can enjoy a new range of flavors they may have never had from Taco Bell before,” Liz Matthews, Global Chief Food Innovation Officer at Taco Bell, said in a press release. “This Mexican-inspired dish represents an evolution of what fans typically expect from Taco Bell. We’re excited to bring this menu item nationwide after an incredibly successful test in 2022.”
Launched on August 3, 2023, the Grilled Cheese Dipping Tacos are available at participating Taco Bell restaurants across the United States for a limited time only and while supplies last. An a la carte order of the new menu item costs $3.49, which may vary depending on location.

The shredded beef was tender and delicious; I couldn’t believe how much flavor there was. It tasted great with all that cheese, and the jalapeño sauce added lovely creaminess and heat.
