Taco Bell testing 3 new menu items, including nacho boxes

Three cities are getting a belated Christmas present from Taco Bell with new menu items next week.

From Dec. 27 to mid-January, Taco Bell will test new delicacies in three cities: Charlotte, North Carolina; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Yum! Brands chain said in a news release.

In Charlotte, customers can try a Buffalo Chicken Nachos Box filled with chips, beans, nacho cheese sauce, shredded cheese, shredded chicken, buffalo sauce, sour cream, pico de gallo and guacamole. The box is $5 and comes with a medium drink.

Taco Bell customers in Milwaukee can try a Cheesy Jalapeño Nachos Box for $5 starting Dec. 27.

For just $1, Taco Bell customers in Cincinnati can try a new flatbread stuffed with beef, cheese and potatoes.

The Beefy Potato Flatbread can also be included in a $5 box with a Doritos Locos Taco, Crunchy Taco, Cinnamon Twists and a medium drink.

Earlier this year, Milwaukee Taco Bell aficionados were able to try the Reaper Rancher Quesarito for only $2.99. It had a creamy sauce with Carolina Reaper peppers and nacho cheese. Charlotte diners, too, were able to try a $2 Stacker Duo – essentially a folded quesadilla – in the fall.

Taco Bell is also adding a pair of $1 burritos to its menu nationwide on Dec. 27. Available for only a limited time, the fast food chain will offer the Chicken Enchilada Burrito — with rice, shredded cheese, red sauce, sour cream and cheddar cheese — and the Three Cheese Nacho Burrito — with beef, nacho cheese sauce, red tortilla strips, sour cream and a three-cheese blend.
