Forget those chicken sandwiches, Buffalo Chicken Nacho Fries will be the next foodie obsession. Are you prepared for this Taco Bell flavor innovation?

Nacho Fries returning to the Taco Bell menu is big news, but the big flavor innovation is definitely the Buffalo Chicken Nacho Fries joining the tasty line-up. While chicken seems to be everywhere on quick service menus, this new menu item offers a twist for Taco Bell. Are you ready to try this flavor innovation?

For the first time, Taco Bell is adding Buffalo sauce to its menu. While the classic Taco Bell sauces are always a part of any Taco Bell meal (can anyone really resist those funny sayings), those flavors are more traditional Mexican-influenced flavors. Buffalo sauce is quite different. That vinegar forward heat is very specific.

According to Taco Bell, the Buffalo Chicken Nacho Fries will feature those boldly seasoned fries with “shredded chicken, shredded cheddar cheese, warm Nacho Cheese sauce, pico de gallo, reduced fat sour cream, and then drizzled with Taco Bell’s first-ever tangy buffalo sauce.”

Like other versions of the Nacho Fries, this dish is a hearty meal. There is something just tasty about smothered Nacho Fries that require a fork to eat them. Every bite offers another flavor surprise.

Bringing the Buffalo Chicken flavor to Nacho Fries is an interesting twist for Taco Bell. While the Rattlesnake and Reaper Ranch were quite spicy, this new flavor option is more approachable for a wider audience. Some people like heat, just not super spicy heat.

While Nacho Fries are incredibly popular, many people will try this new flavor option. Maybe people will try all the versions and rank their favorite. It sounds like a fun eating afternoon.

Nacho Fries and Buffalo Chicken Nacho Fries will appear at participating Taco Bell restaurants on January 30. There are a la carte, combo and even $5 box menu options available.
