Chipotle’s Queso And Nachos Versus Taco Bell’s — The Winner Is Clear

After being described as “dumpster juice,” Chipotle has changed its queso recipe and is testing nachos as a new menu item. We taste-tested the recipe against Taco Bell’s queso, and the winner was clear. The following is a transcript of the video.

(Queso 1)

Linette: This looks like paint.

Chris: It’s very solid and doesn’t move or jiggle. I don’t know if it’s edible or not.

Manny: It’s good, it’s just nacho cheese.

Ashley: You know, not super authentic but kind of what you would come to expect from a nacho.

Matt: Tastes like movie theater cheese.

Linette: This is definitely like a cheese sauce, a very American cheese sauce.

Devan: It tastes exactly like the cheese that comes out of the 7-11 machine.

Emma: Yeah I really don’t like that that much.

(Queso 2)

Linette: Okay, that queso is good.

Chris: It looks like it has more, like, peppers or other ingredients into it.

Matt: That’s really good. Yeah, it’s got flavor. It’s nice. I like it.

Ashley: It kind of has a different consistency. It doesn’t have the super smooth consistency that you might see from what you would expect from nachos.

Devan: This is a dinner-party-type cheese. This is a — you’re having a Super Bowl, someone’s bringing over some cheese and chips, they’re bringing this.


Chris: Alright, so, I definitely like this one better already.

Manny: I felt like nacho cheese 2 was doing a little bit too much.

Linette: If you want to eat something delicious, I would go for #2.

Ashley: Chip #1 wins for me.

Matt: The first one kind of sucked.

Emma: I think they were both kinda bad.

Devan: Obviously, this cheese is better than that cheese, but they’re two completely different things.
