Taco Bell Canada Launches New Cantina Chicken Menu

In a bid to shake up daytime dining routines across the nation, Taco Bell Canada has unveiled its latest culinary offering: the Cantina Chicken Menu. Launching nationally on March 18, 2024, Canadians are invited to indulge in four tantalizing new additions to the Taco Bell lineup, promising a burst of flavor and freshness to break the monotony of midday meals.

The Cantina Chicken Menu boasts a delectable selection of dishes, including the Cantina Chicken Soft Taco, Cantina Chicken Crispy Taco, Cantina Chicken Burrito, and Cantina Chicken Quesadilla. Each item is carefully crafted with premium ingredients such as freshly fried white corn tortilla shells, savory Mexican spices, and a creamy Avocado Ranch Sauce, designed to elevate the dining experience for Taco Bell aficionados.

Here’s a close look at the menu:

  • Cantina Chicken Crispy Taco — Filled with Cantina Chicken, Creamy Jalapeño Sauce and a 3-cheese blend, generously coated with a layer of grilled cheese on the outside.

  • Cantina Chicken Quesadilla — Cantina Chicken is enveloped in a warm flour tortilla alongside a decadent layer of a 3-cheese blend and Creamy Chipotle Sauce, crisped up to perfection with grilled cheese on the outside and served with guacamole and reduced-fat sour cream for dipping.

  • Cantina Chicken Soft Taco — Cantina Chicken is complemented by Avocado Ranch Sauce, fresh iceberg lettuce, shredded purple cabbage, cheddar cheese and pico de gallo.

  • Cantina Chicken Burrito — A double portion of Cantina Chicken (compared to the Cantina Chicken Soft Taco) with iceberg lettuce, shredded purple cabbage, Avocado Ranch Sauce, Creamy Chipotle Sauce, cheddar cheese and pico de gallo.

To celebrate the launch, Taco Bell is hosting a special Sampling Event on March 19 from 2 to 4 p.m. local time at 14 participating locations across Canada. During this exclusive event, patrons can sink their teeth into a complimentary Cantina Soft Chicken Taco, offering a tantalizing glimpse into the innovative flavors of the new menu.

Liz Matthews, Global Chief Food Innovation Officer at Taco Bell, expressed enthusiasm for the Cantina Chicken Menu, describing it as a “labour of love” that combines customer feedback with culinary expertise to deliver a truly exceptional dining experience. She emphasized the brand’s commitment to providing both familiar favorites and unexpected delights, catering to the evolving tastes of Taco Bell fans nationwide.

In addition to the tantalizing new menu items, Taco Bell is challenging misconceptions about its offerings. Contrary to the belief that Taco Bell is solely a destination for late-night indulgence, the brand is encouraging Canadians to embrace their daytime cravings. From April 3 onwards, customers can share their late-night receipts on social media for a chance to win Taco Bell gift cards, redeemable for free Cantina Chicken meals.

With its bold flavors, premium ingredients, and commitment to customer satisfaction, Taco Bell’s Cantina Chicken Menu is poised to revolutionize the Canadian fast-food landscape, one delicious bite at a time.
