Once you go Black...You never go Back!

So today for lunch I had one of these . . .(ok, two, but who's counting?)

That's a Black Jack Taco from Taco Bell; and it is delicious! And right now only 89 cents!

As you can see by the little label it's a "crunchy black taco shell filled with seasoned beef, zesty pepper jack sauce, shredded lettuce and a blend of three cheeses - cheddar, pepper jack and mozzarella!"

And this is just my unsolicited opinion. Trust me, Taco Bell has no interest in my humble opinion :-)

If you try one, let me know. It's a bit strange to see a black taco, but its perfect for the Halloween season. Have a great weekend all! My daughter will be home this weekend and we plan on hitting the pumpkin patch and I plan on baking pumpkin bread! What are your plans?

Oh, and before I forget, be sure to go and visit all the people that have linked up to Design by Gollum for Foodie Friday. I believe my Black Taco qualifies as food, don't you?


  1. Iwanna black taco! Perfest and afordable lunch for Halloween. Think I'll take my 14 year old. Sounds fun and delicious.

  2. Alicia, I haven't tried this yet but it sounds like a good taco. I must say that your title had me in hysterics. Well, you know where my mind went.....

    Your pumpkin bread sounds delicious.

    I'm being lazy today.

  3. Megan,
    I'm sure he's going to love it. What boy doesn't love tacos? And since he's 14, he's probably eating about six of these just to get full right?
    Have fun & let me know what he thinks.

  4. JarieLyn - Hahaha, I know where your mind went, same place mine went when I wrote it. And the pumpkin bread is in the oven, believe it or not!

    Just waiting for my daughter to get here and then we're heading for the pumpkin patch. So should have pics of some pumpkin carving or painting by tomorrow.

    Enjoy your lazy day my friend, you've earned it!

  5. I drive past Taco Bell every day for the past 3 years and have not stopped once. Not sure why? Now the black tacos are not sparking an interest to stop but it sure seems they are paying a small fortune in advertising this Fall. I see cars lined up in the drive thru window so I guess they are good. I made pumpkin breads already and now I am baking for a large charity breakfast I sponsor this coming Friday. It is a whole lot of fun to bake this time of the year.

  6. I guess the taco must be made with black corn? Just guessing since I've never actually seen black corn. ;-)

  7. Joyce - Wow, every day and you haven't stopped once? I very seldom eat at Taco Bell but my mom loves it, so I do drive thru pretty often to get her food.

    How wonderful that your sponsor a charity breakfast, that must be so much work but probably very gratifying. Good for you!

  8. Stine in Ontario - I've never see black corn either, come to think of it. Maybe they just dye the batter before they make the tortillas? Hmmm, makes you wonder. Well, since I have the world at my finger tips, I think I'll go google it.

  9. Never met a taco at Taco Bell that I didn't love! Thanks for sharing and come visit when you have a moment!
