About this Deal
After recently trimming its menu, Taco Bell is expanding it – for a limited time.
Starting Dec. 24, the fast-food chain says it is bringing back Nacho Fries along with the $1 Loaded Nacho Taco, Taco and Burrito Cravings Pack and Bacon Club Chalupa.
Taco Bell removed the Mexican pizza, items with shredded chicken – including the Shredded Chicken Soft Taco, Shredded Chicken Burrito and Shredded Chicken Quesadilla Melt – in November as part of streamlining the menu amid COVID-19.
"While many restaurants, including Taco Bell, trimmed menus during the pandemic, Nacho Fries prove that beloved innovations can always make a comeback," the company said in a news release Wednesday. "Here’s to turning a new page in 2021."

The chain first added Nacho Fries as a limited-time item in 2018. It has brought them back several times.
“In a year as difficult and uncertain as this one was, we know that consumers crave the comforts they love most," Nikki Lawson, Taco Bell’s chief global brand officer, said in a statement. "That’s why we’re excited to bring back Nacho Fries for our passionate fans to close out this year and kick off 2021 positively and deliciously.”
