I've never personally had these at Jack in the Box before but my family has. They all thought that it tasted pretty close to the real thing. Some of them tweaked it a bit with flavored salsas (pineapple peach seemed to be their fave lol) and added chopped tomatoes. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper, Dee.
