10 Secrets Taco Bell Employees Will Never Tell You


What is it about Taco Bell that keeps people
coming back? It could be the fact that unlike other places that sell fast food, Taco Bell
is endlessly innovating and always coming up with new ideas. It could also be that people
really are living by Taco Bell’s old slogan and thinking outside the bun. They want something
other than the same old burgers they keep getting everywhere else. They want something
new and exciting. They want a taco shell made out of Dorito! So let’s bite into the top
ten secrets Taco Bell employees will never tell you. Dip everything at Taco Bell in nacho cheese Nacho cheese is the kind of magical thing
that everyone loves (well, as long as they’re not lactose intolerant). It’s gooey, cheesy
goodness that perfectly drapes over everything like edible velvet. That is doubly true for
the nacho cheese that you can get with your meal at Taco Bell. Sure, it may come in a
bag that gets poured into the dispenser by the employees, but look past the fact that
this cheese is probably very artificial and focus on the fact that it tastes delicious.
As it turns out, one of the greatest things people discovered about this sauce is that
you can and should dip absolutely everything in it. Yeah, that’s right. Dip anything from
Taco Bell in that nacho cheese sauce, and bam! You’ve got yourself a whole new treat
on your hands. Burrito? Dip it in cheese. Taco? Dip it in cheese. Quesadilla? You best
believe you should be dipping that thing in cheese. If you’re not coating everything you
get from Taco Bell in nacho cheese, then you are really not living your best life. It is
the secret to a great meal for cheap. On top of that, you can just get the cheese sauce
and pour it on something else, like McDonald’s fries. Cheese fries, anyone? Boom! Now you’re
living the dream, the Taco Bell nacho cheese dream. Taco Bell cinnamon twists Taco Bell might not exactly be known for its
signature desserts, but rest assured, like any other good fast food restaurant, you can
certainly satisfy your sweet tooth there. Sure, you might not be able to get a waffle
taco anymore, but you can still get the cinnamon twists. If you’ve never had them, then let
us describe them to you. They are little, crunchy twists that are tossed with cinnamon
and sugar, and they are completely delicious. You might think that making something so good
would be a whole complicated process, but you would be wrong. That’s because the secret
to the cinnamon twists is that they are just rotini pasta that has been deep fried. That’s
right, the dessert that everyone goes crazy for after they’ve finished their encharito (we’ll
get to that in a moment) is simply deep fried pasta tossed with cinnamon and sugar. Does
that mean you could make the cinnamon twists yourself at home? Absolutely it does! Of course,
it might just be better to trust the professionals at Taco Bell to do it for you. After all,
deep frying in your home can be messy and time-consuming. Plus, you can always grab
some of your other favorites while you’re at it. Order the Taco Bell Enchirito Every fast food place has a secret menu. Sure,
there is the front-facing menu that everyone is used to, that has all the familiar favorites
on it, but lurking just beneath that menu is an entire world of new possibilities for
customers to try. There are plenty of places that will be happy to make secret menu items,
and Taco Bell is one of them. However, the most famous of these secret menu items might
just be the enchirito. If you’ve never heard of this secret menu item, then allow us to
shed some light on it for you. The enchirito, as its name suggests, is a combination of
a burrito and an enchilada. As most Taco Bell fans know, the restaurant does not feature
a classic enchilada on its menu, so this is basically like having one made for you with
all of the ingredients the staff have available to them. It’s a beef, beans, and cheese burrito
smothered in that signature Taco Bell red sauce and cheese. Yes, you have to eat it
with a fork (although some ambitious individuals might go for it with their hands), but it
is definitely worth it. Make any order vegetarian at Taco Bell Fast food hasn’t always been great to vegetarians.
Some places have caught on and started offering veggie burgers (there is now also the major
trend of burgers that are “plant-based” but greatly resemble actual beef). Taco Bell was
way ahead of the curve on this front, though. For years, people have been able to get the
Taco Bell food they know and love but with beans substituted for the beef. That means
that pretty much anything available at Taco Bell can be made into a vegetarian option.
You can get a regular taco filled with beans instead of beef. And if you’re really hungry
for carbs, you can ask for potatoes as a substitute for beef. Basically, anything at Taco Bell
can satisfy a vegetarian who doesn’t want to give up on tacos, burritos, or quesadillas. That’s
sort of the beauty of Taco Bell. The food might not always be pretty, and it certainly
received a lot of flack in the past for certain ingredients, but the truth is that Taco Bell,
more than any other fast food institution, is trying to serve everyone, and if that is
not a major display of food democracy, then we don’t know what is! The Taco Bell spicy ranch is the same as Baja
sauce At any fast food restaurant, there are fan
favorites that come and go. McDonald’s has its McRib, Wendy’s has its bacon mushroom
melt, and now even the KFC Double Down has been added to the list of constantly disappearing
and re-appearing fast food. Of course, some fan favorites stay gone forever. When that
happens, it’s like a tragedy. It leaves a hole in your life that cannot be filled.
It’s the kind of thing that can supremely ruin your day (or, at the very least, your
lunch hour). However, sometimes your favorite things will make their way back into your
life, even if you don’t realize it. For example, Taco Bell fans must remember the famous Baja
sauce: a creamy yet spicy topping that was absolutely perfect on almost anything. And
yet, if you try to find it at any Taco Bell now, you will be truly disappointed, as it
has been taken off of the menu. Fear not, though! For Baja sauce never really left.
Instead, it became what is now known as spicy ranch! That’s right, the Baja sauce you loved
all along was really just ranch with a little bit of hot sauce mixed into it, and the spicy
ranch that is now available at Taco Bell is exactly the same. As they say, a Baja sauce
by any other name is just as sweet. Ask for a specific amount of Taco Bell sauces As we may have revealed with our point about
Baja sauce, it’s the sauces that make everything at Taco Bell extra special. Look, we know
the food itself is pretty great, but without those little packets of heaven, nothing tastes
quite as good. So what have you got to choose from in the sauce department, anyway? Well,
you have the mild and hot sauces, which are obviously great choices on their own. The
mild delivers a hint of heat with that signature tanginess, while the hot really amps things
up by increasing the spice. Then, you can go even further with the fire sauce, which
is so spicy that not many people can handle it. Beyond that, you’re dealing with Diablo
sauce, the spiciest packet they offer. Of course, if you’re really an individual, you
can go with something more flavorful like the salsa verde or the breakfast salsa, both
of which offer unique flavor without burning off your precious taste buds. Of course, when
asking for these sauces with your meal, it can be a little disappointing when you don’t
end up with enough. So what do you do? Well, instead of asking for “a lot” of sauce of
packets, ask for a specific number. Say you want 10, or 15, or 30, and the staff at Taco
Bell will be more than happy to cram a whole handful of sauces into your to-go bag. That’s
how you get the flavor you’re looking for! Exact weight at Taco Bell Have you ever looked at the tacos you got
from Taco Bell and wondered how every single one comes out the exact same as all the others?
Well, there’s a very simple reason for that. Even though it seems like Taco Bell is a fun,
loose, do what you want kind of atmosphere, the truth is actually far different. As it
turns out, every item at Taco Bell is made on a scale, with each ingredient needing to
be weighed out in exact measurements. That means that every taco, quesadilla, and burrito,
is built according to very strict weight guidelines. The staff is rigorously trained in how to
do this. According to a former manager from Taco Bell, if a food item is off by more than
.3 ounces, it has to be thrown away and rebuilt. This means that all of the ingredients must
be added in exact increments. So the next time you think to yourself that working at
Taco Bell must be so easy, just remember that the staff members go through a lot to get
every item on the menu exactly right for their customers. This means that they have to make
a lot of mistakes and really learn the technique before they’re able to do it without thinking. Substitute Doritos in your Taco Bell nachos As we all know, Doritos are basically the
best snack food that money can buy. They are crunchy, coated in flavor powder, and are
pretty much the perfect chip for any occasion. So how can anyone possibly make Doritos better?
Well, let’s first talk about the flawed logic of that question. You see, You don’t make
Doritos better, Doritos make everything else better. This is doubly true for one of the
signature dishes at Taco Bell: their nachos. There’s a secret to making them better that
is so obvious you might kick yourself if you haven’t thought of it yet. You can substitute
Doritos for the regular corn chips in your Taco Bell nachos. Yes, it’s true. You can
take out the plain, old tortilla chips that normally get smothered in cheese and other
toppings and instead have the staff fill your dish with nacho cheese Doritos. Some places
have actually already done this (there’s even a name for this particular type of culinary
mix-up: “Dorachos”), but at Taco Bell, it’s up to you, the customer, to make sure the
staff knows that this is what you want. And trust us, it is definitely something that
you will want to try. Taco Bell staff make their own crazy items While Taco Bell customers certainly enjoy
eating the food, it’s really the staff who get the most out of the standard ingredients
found behind the counter of any location. Sure, when they go on their lunch break, they
could go somewhere else for a change of pace. After all, how many tacos could you possibly
want to eat after making them all day? However, the staff have figured out something that
only a handful of customers have come to realize: there is so much that you can do with Taco
Bell ingredients. According to a former Taco Bell manager, when the staff members make
themselves something to eat on their break, it is pretty much never something that is
a regular menu item. The staff will take a ton of liberties with what the ingredients
are meant for. They might make a Mexican pizza on a flatbread so that it resembles an actual
pizza. Or, they might take some Doritos Locos shells, crush them up, and make a delicious
nacho/burrito bowl with them. They might even just start layering a bunch of shells on top
of one another. The point is that with taco ingredients and an endless supply of imagination,
anything can be possible. The staff members have proven this time and time again by coming
up with some truly insane ideas. Some of them are so good, they should be on the menu for
real! Of course, you don’t even need them to be menu items, because… Customize anything and everything at Taco
Bell Burger King may tell it’s customers to have
it their way, and Subway may let people convince themselves that they are making their sandwich
themselves, but out of all of the fast food restaurants, Taco Bell is the king of customization.
It may not seem like it, but Taco Bell is the kind of place that encourages its customers
to get creative. There are plenty of secret menu items that have sprung forth from the
creativity of Taco Bell patrons, but even if something isn’t on the secret menu, it
can still be yours to have. All you have to do is imagine it. According to a former Taco
Bell manager, the restaurant is one of those places where the customers really do feel
free to mix and match all kinds of things on the menu, and due to the unique point of
sale system, it’s really easy for Taco Bell employees to figure out what is going on every
item and how much to charge. Yes, you do get up-charged sometimes, but at the end of the
day, isn’t paying a little more to get exactly what you want always worth it? After all,
you’ll walk out of there with a smile on your face and a bag full of delicious goodness
that will fill your stomach and your soul. We’ve got more great videos for you to fill

  8. I used to work at a KFC/Taco Bell and we were always coming up with our own concoctions. My favorite was taking a gordita shell, covering it in shredded cheese (lots of shredded cheese), melting the cheese, sometimes adding a cruncy taco shell, the a KFC chicken strip, KFC honey mustard sauce, a little more cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. After I moved on from working there, I vowed never to eat at either restaurant ever again- I ate so much of the food in the 4 years I was there the smell of either restaurant makes my stomache turn. I do however miss this one crazy invention of mine. It was so good.

    And speaking of KFC… mixing buffalo popcorn chicken with the cole slaw… delicious.

  9. This video is so full of shit 💩💩💩 and so is Taco Bell and it makes you shit

  10. If you think we actually weigh anything on a scale you're trippin lmao

  11. At the taco bell i go to there is just trays with the sauce packets and I fill them up all the way

  12. I feel sorry for people that never tried taco John's nacho cheese.

  13. I ask for a FUCK TON of diablo everytime now my truck is FILLED with it

  14. I worked at taco bell in 2015 that weight is not true its shit like a 3 finger punch of less a squirt of sour cream 2 finger pinch of cheese it's not EXACT lol this video is retarded

  15. Cinnamon twists aren't rotini noodles! If you try to make those at home with regular pasta it's going to blow up in your face! They are made of rice! Do not do that dumb shit it will blow up !

  16. anyone else watching this video thinking, "I ALREADY KNOW ALL OF THIS"

  17. any one else more interessted in the movie that was playin. no just me okay lol

  18. yeh they put less and less ground beef … you dont get the bang for your buck …

  19. This is fucking annoying the taco bell Commercials don't even try as hard as this for god sake

  20. The best desert at taco bell is the cinnamon balls doughnut delights

  21. The weight thing is wrong. When you get audited they only make you weight one item of the entire order. Actually, when not audited the scale rarely gets used. Instead you’re told to skimp. That’s why it’s always just flour cuz the managers love to make everyone skimp

  22. This makes no fucking sense taco Bell doesn't want us to k ow that we can make are own stuff

  23. Ask them to deep fry at flatbread and coat it with cinnamon twist sugar. AKA elephant ear

  24. Just about everything about this video is fake news.

    Especially the Baja sauce=Spicy Ranch.

    FLAT OUT LIE

  25. I am an employee get a chalupa add nacho cheese and creamy jalapeño thank me later , also there’s more secrets

    The beef me Meximelt where I’m at is discontinued but if you order a cheesy roll up with beef and pico added you get one may be a Lil more but you get a beef meximelt

    Also the enchirito depending on who’s nice or not they might make it for you still

    Oh and there’s no secret menu or is there ? No seriously there isn’t

    Yes you can swap any protein with beans no charge and yes you can swap out any ingredient for anything unless it’s quesadilla wanting sour cream

  26. Those are not rotini pasta. Im telling you from experience, fried rotini is delicious, but it does not become a churro.

  27. taco bell employee here gonna debunk some of these

    -cinnamon twists aren't regular rotini pasta, idk what it is exactly but regular pasta won't puff up like that
    -we've recently stopped selling the enchirito entirely, and also the "secret menu" doesn't exist
    -"fire sauce is so spicy that most people can't handle it" LOL ok
    -we don't carry doritos in bags since last year, don't know why we stopped since we still have dorito tacos but that's why we don't have the meal deals anymore

    the rest is fairly accurate

  28. taco bell employee here; if you want to try to make the cinnamon twists, don’t fry them for over 1 minute

  29. Before I watch this video I jus wanna say I used to work for taco Bell 😂🤦

  30. And that is big a big big fact that the cinnamon twist are made from pasta noodles surprisingly it doesn't actually take a lot but a handful that handful turns into a lot after you hit him with a deep fryer

  31. Most definitely right as well the whole franchise of Taco Bell is to satisfy the customer by any means there's so many times I had to bite my tongue

  32. yo for real for real I used a half and to ask people how many sauce packets they want and then they'll look at me be like just put a handful in there and I'm like what how many do you want yo like it was crazy I do miss that job but it was whatever

  33. Yeah we had the proportion standards where we had to put like two scoops of Pico or you know one scoop of three cheese or just regular cheddar cheese whatever the product maybe but yeah that proportion thing it's really not on point because at my restaurant I work that talk about 98 North they just load up your stuff like I mean they put whatever amount they feel and then that's what you get you know I always took my job very seriously and I think that's why I left it but yeah everything about this video has been pretty spot-on

  34. And that is most definitely truewe do make our own food and they're all little like mini items like I never went too much with it I just eat me mini quesadillas a lot but when it came to making a regular quesadilla for myself I would add chunk chicken shredded chicken and steak 🤣🤘🏿

  35. Myth #1 WE DO NOT WEIGH SHIT I promise you nobody is trained properly the cooks(speaking from personal current experience) we're just thrown onto the line and it's on you now lmao no weighing anything. The scales at my job are still wrapped up unused

  36. In my 6 month experience in Taco Bell, I actually USED the scale zero times, because it was usually stored under the different to-go bag slots. So, the real secret is that we're actually just given strict portion tools. Pumps of sour cream are identical, the meat scoops have built-in portion control, the purple scooper you saw… portioned perfectly… The taco toppings are actually the only thing we had to eyeball with pinching. And on large orders, we kinda just handfulled it and spread it around until it looked right.

  37. Add that working in restaurants you only get 10 dollars per hour all the stress isn't worth it

  38. I worked at tacobell for three years and I used to make the best food on break

  39. I like eating the simple hard shell taco. But most time they are made so underwhelming in the ingredients I started going to Taco Johns (much more consistent). I eat 10 or 12 Taco Bell hard shell tacos and still need to get some food, for the cost I can eat at an all you can eat buffet.

  40. oh well when your sitting in your chevy and feel some thing heavy DIARRHEA DIARREHA , when your sliding into third and lay a juice turd diarreha diarreha, an your trunks are full of foam then there is some thing wrong DIARREHA diarreah.

  41. Taco Bell is the worst fast food it's grade d beef worst then pet food cheese is fake shit is nasty

  42. I'M SORRY'CUZ WHAT I'M FEELING ISN'T BLISSFUL…THE STRIDENT, HIGH-PITCHED VOICE OF THIS FEMALE COMMENTATOR IS TO DIE FROM!!!

  43. The measuring one is BS. There is no exact measurements. We don't even have a scale at our Taco Bell.

  44. I disagree………never tell you? sure they will, especially when they quit…….but they don't know much or care much, typical. cos make billions annually but yet pay the most minimal for the counter staff, cut corners and don't provide real beef, cheaper slop and coloring added to cut costs……;all that money lands in those fat cat pockets…and dumb Americans too fat from it make billions for pharma cos. to prescribe diabetes meds……..what happened ? My mom used to cook 4 daya a week, nothing great or plentiful. but that what famniles did in the 80s….plus it was nice to wear 32 inch jeans and fit within the auirline seatbelt guidelines if needed…plus rare to find such a fat, obese coruplent gal…….now to see a skinny chcik is a rare sighting…….food people…..cook it, girls what the fuck? make us some god damn meals….i blame yal..LOL

  45. You have to give it to them they come up with something "new" constantly using the same 4 ingredients. Although 60% of their income is after 11pm for a reason. I also always wonder why the Doritos tacos barely taste like anything, that was a let down.

  46. 8:50 I would like to know why every single taco looks like the meat was dispersed out of a cannon and everything else is at the other end lol. is it just me? There is some major inertia going on there

  47. 1. Dip cinnamon twists in nacho cheese. You'll thank me.
    2. Absolutely do not try to deep fry at home. It will end badly.
    3. Enchirito is just bean buritto add beef and more red sauce on top. It's not really a secret menu item, it's just been discontinued.
    4. We will literally swap anything for you. Anything. Any ingredient.
    5. Close enough. They're not exactly the same.
    6. Mild, hot, fire, and diablo. The only one that's actually spicy is diablo. Breakfast salsa is the bomb. Rip verde sauce. Also. No one will count out sauce packets. And we will hate you if you ask.
    7. We are actually very strict when it comes to measuring and proportions. But the scale isn't really that common.
    8. No. No you can't. We don't have dorito chips.
    9. Truth. Cheesy gordita crunch, substitute a nacho cheese DLT for the hard shell. Add jalapenos. Sub avacado ranch instead of spicy ranch. Boom. Although we do have to pay for every substitution still.
    10. Truth. Again. We will sub anything. And the POS system is fantastic. 10/10
    Honestly Taco bell is amazing.

  48. I managed Taco Bell for 4 years and I started when we cooked everything fresh, but now everything is processed from some company that sends it in a boil- in- bag meat. I have customers come to me with a worm looking piece in their meat, that's an Artery that didn't get grounded up. We use to cook pinto beans fresh,but now they're dehydrated pellets we mix with water. Demands has Taco Bell using processed ingredients instead of fresh

  49. My gods. Could this be more annoying? It could have been just as informative at half the time without the annoying cut aways and the droning on and on about cheese sauce. Lost me at 6 minutes in.

  50. Try this guys:

    My dads signature:

    Bean burrito
    -no red sauce
    + onion
    + tomato
    + avocado ranch
    + sour cream
    Grilled***

    FUCKING DELICIOUS. especially if grilled.

    My favorite:

    CHICKEN QUESARITO
    -no rice
    + potatoes
    + creamy jalapeño sauce (or get as a side and dip)
    😋

  51. This is nothing but a giant commercial for taco bell food. There's zero employee secrets here folks. Click bait anyone?! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

  52. I can honestly say you have made me want to see the movie Battleship. 🙂 But besides that the video was really good.

  53. You stupid bitch, we don't make enchiritos and we sure as shit dont have bags of doritos on hand

  54. I'm from the hoods of Minneapolis Minnesota…been doing Doritos and cheese plus chili 😂😂

  55. I currently work at a franchise one, some of this is true. Especially, the employee creativity one.
    I make an XXL GS Burrito and Deep-fry it, topping it with Red Sauce and Nacho Cheese afterwards! 😋

  56. Tomorrow the Toasted Cheddar Chalupa debuts! It will also come in a box with a drink and two tacos! The Grande Nachos Box will return as well.

  57. You should have fact checked before talking out of your butt about the "rotini pasta". It's completely incorrect, yes they look like rotini, but you cannot find them in any store, they are made from completely different ingredients specifically for the cinnamon twists.

  58. TBell Manager here, if you want something tasty ask for your favorite burrito smothered in cheese and crushed up DLT shells fried for a minute. Its heaven!

  59. walked inta taca bell ta order tacas, guy was itchin his az, hand in 👖! no gluv warin der eitha! phuq dat place ya’ll! I RUNNED! 🏃‍♀️ like dat! Ya’ll eat dat 💩, u 🏃‍♀️ 💨 den mayb 💩 u 👖
