Taco Bell bisque? Here’s the recipe.

By Matthew Brooks

Bisque. What is it, exactly? It’s good, right? Oh yeah.

Do you typically serve bisque at Thanksgiving?

Taco Bell thinks you should this time.

The origins of the Taco Bell bisque comes from an annual meal at the company headquarters. Employees are inspired to create Taco Bell-inspired meals.

The taco restaurant is not serving up bisque. No, you have to make it yourself.

The difference between a soup, a chowder, and a bisque depends primarily on how smooth it is. To be a true bisque, get ready to pulverize your ingredients.

The Taco Bell website offers this bisque recipe.

  • 6 Rolled Chicken Tacos (Cut 4 into quarters and save 2 to garnish)
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 1 garlic clove rough chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon Mexican oregano
  • 1 quart of chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 (14 oz.) can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ bunch of cleaned cilantro (optional for cooking and garnish)
