'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Taco Bell is trying to color outside of the fast-food lines, introducing several new items designed to compete with higher-end restaurants.

On Thursday, the Irvine, Calif.-based chain introduced XXL Steak Nachos, which it calls “restaurant-sized nachos.”

In addition, Taco Bell is revealing a national dessert menu filled with churro doughnuts, caramel apple empanadas and cookie sandwiches, all for less than $1 each.

In Charlotte, Taco Bell is testing a double-steak quesadilla through its more upscale Cantina Bell menu, which some analysts have dubbed the “Chipotle Killer,” referring to the fast-casual Mexican chain with which Taco Bell is competing for customers.
