WTF: Taco Bell Just Took Tacos Next Level With a Fried Chicken Shell That You Can Try RN
So, when you think of a taco, you generally think of a tortilla folded gently in half and stuffed with fillings — usually some meat, maybe some cheese, veggies, guac and whatever else your heart desires. However, Taco Bell has decided to shake things up and put the meat on the OUTSIDE with what they’re calling the Naked Chicken Chalupa. Say what!?
Solving the problem of the tortilla (which we actually didn’t know was a problem, but whatevs!), T-Bell is subbing it for tortilla-shaped pieces of fried chicken filled with shredded cheese, lettuce, creamy avocado ranch dressing and diced tomatoes. While these have only been tested so far in a few markets, they’ve apparently done well enough that Taco Bell has decided to bring them nationwide, so we’ll all have the opportunity to give ’em a try!
Whether this sounds like something you’d be into or not, they’ll be available to you starting today (!) for the low, low price of $2.99 (though prices may differ, depending where you are). We can’t wait to see how Twitter reacts…
Would you try this version of a taco? Let us know @BritandCo!
