On the heels of the big Enchirito return-nearly a decade after it was first discontinued-Taco Bell is introducing two new versions of its similarly beloved Nacho Fries, which made their own comeback last month.

Along with the original, T-Bell is adding 7-Layer Nacho Fries and Grilled Cheese Nacho Fries to the roster. For the former and bigger-than-ever rendition, the Chalupa slinger is piling its golden fries with savory black beans, diced tomatoes, reduced-fat sour cream, warm nacho cheese sauce, creamy chipotle sauce, shredded cheese, real seasoned beef, and guacamole.

As for the Grilled Cheese Nacho Fries, which takes a page out of the Grilled Cheese Burrito’s book, you can expect the same heaping mound of fries only topped with grilled marinated steak, warm nacho cheese, and a drizzle of creamy chipotle sauce. It’s finished off with a blend of mozzarella, cheddar, and pepper jack cheeses. 

The 7-Layer Nacho Fries are available nationwide for $3.99 a la carte or $3.49 in a burrito, while the Grilled Cheese Nacho Fries are part of a trial run in Sacramento, California. You can snag those for $3.99.

Now, if you want to toss on a guac topping with your Nacho Fries-be it the original, 7-Layer creation or Grilled Cheese-inspired-you’ll get Taco Bell’s new and improved smashed avocado recipe. The ultra-creamy guac is made from real Hass avocados, prepped daily, and brimming with tomatoes and onions. It’s also a certified vegan menu item.Want more Thrillist?

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
