Jack-In-The-Box Tacos, The Finest Meal In America

Roguewave1 | May 6, 201611:21 PM     5

Jack-In-The-Box tacos are America's finest meal dollar-for-dollar. They could single-handedly abolish hunger here. Where else are you going to get a single meal with all six of the classic food groups represented plus the seventh, unknown food group...all for 2 for a buck?

★ Grain - corn taco shell √
★ Meat - there must be some in the bottom √
★ Dairy - cheese √
★ Veggies - lettuce √
★ Fruits - Tomato/salsa (you knew tomatoes were fruits, right?) √
★ Fats/Oils - that stuff oozing down your arm onto your shirt √
★ The Mystery Group - what the hell is that stuff mixed with the meat in the bottom? √

All deep-fried and then dressed out, this is the real deal when perusing America's finest fast food cuisine, but like all fine foods, this does not travel well and must be eaten fresh from the fryer.

SERVING SIZE 1 Taco (81 g)
CALORIES 172
CALORIES FROM FAT 83
TOTAL FAT (G) 9
SATURATED FAT (G) 3
TRANS FAT (G) 0
CHOLESTEROL (MG) 13
SODIUM (MG) 362
POTASSIUM (MG) 181
CARBOHYDRATES (G) 16
DIETARY FIBER (G) 2
SUGARS (G) 1
PROTEIN (G) 6

Now, since Jack-In-The-Box has brought back their Monster Taco in their menu, an excellent complement to their standard two-for-a-dollar described above, is the Nacho Monster Taco which has the Mystery Meat plus a generous dollop of melted gooey cheese stuff and jalapeños but with no lettuce. Warning: this guy is messy and eating in a car where one does not have ready access to a personal clean-up facility is best left to us professionals.
