Wendy's Unveils 3 New Queso-Loaded Menu Items, and Oh Mylanta, They Look Insane
Sorry, peanut butter and jelly, but cheese and bacon are our favorite food duo, and Wendy's has officially taken our undying obsession to the next level. The fast-food chain just unveiled not one but three brand-new menu items that are utterly smothered in queso and bacon: a burger, a chicken sandwich, and french fries. And man, do they look tasty! [insert several fire emoji here]
The queso that's generously showered on top of these sandwiches and fries isn't just any ol' lazy concoction of melted cheese; it has a spicy, flavorful kick to it as there are bits of poblano pepper mixed in. Well done, Wendy's. So far, the reviews of these new items are pretty positive, as Grub Grade noted the queso is "gooey enough to be a noticeable cheese sauce, but thick enough to not be a complete mess to eat." Sounds pretty perfect to us!
Ready to satisfy your thirst for queso? Read on to get up close and personal with these tantalizing menu additions, and try not to drool all over yourself while scrolling and learning more about their ingredients.
Bacon Queso Burger
The Description: "A quarter-pound of fresh, never-frozen beef topped with warm and spicy poblano queso, three strips of applewood smoked bacon, fire-roasted salsa, red onions, and shredded cheddar cheese, all served on a toasted red jalapeño bun." Can we get a "hell yeah"?
Bacon Queso Fries
The Description: "Our natural-cut fries seasoned with sea salt and topped with warm and spicy poblano queso, three strips of applewood smoked bacon, and shredded cheddar cheese." When I die, bury me in these fries.
Bacon Queso Chicken Sandwich
