The chain just announced its most recent menu addition, spicy Buffalo Chicken Nacho Fries — a somewhat unexpected move for a restaurant supposedly focusing on Tex-Mex flavors.
Taco Bell debuted the new item just a week before the Super Bowl, a day that, if snack foods celebrated holidays, would be as close to chicken-wing Christmas as one could get.
The returning Nacho Fries will cost $1.39, while the Buffalo Chicken Nacho Fries will cost $2.99 and come with pico de gallo, sour cream, nacho cheese, shredded cheese and shredded chicken with a buffalo drizzle.
The new fries will come “boldly seasoned” and topped with chicken shreds as well as typical nacho fixings — cheddar cheese, nacho cheese sauce, pico de gallo and sour cream — as well as a decidedly more atypical drizzle of Buffalo sauce on top.
The fast-food chain is adding its Buffalo Chicken Nacho Fries to the menu on Jan. 30, the same day its popular plain Nacho Fries will be returning for a fourth time after their initial debut. (The fan-favorite Nacho Fries were deemed to be the highest-selling new item in Taco Bell history shortly after their debut in 2018.)
The return of the return of the (return of the return of) Nacho Fries will cost a cool $1.39, while the hot new variation will set you back $2.99. And since Taco Bell is not one to rest on its laurels, the chain will also be introducing a burrito version of the Buffalo Chicken Nacho Fries, according to a press release.
So when you hear your friends start to quarrel about the best way to make a Buffalo wing this Super Bowl, quell the entire feud by offering Buffalo Nacho Fries instead. They’ll surely hit the spot just as well as a lobster roll does will when you’re craving a chicken sandwich.
