US-based fast food chain Taco Bell has announced the return of Nacho Fries with a partnership with sauce maker Secret Aardvark.

The collaboration will introduce the all-new Serrabanero Ranch sauce, a blend of serrano and habanero peppers, to the fast-food chain’s mid-year menu.

The Secret Aardvark Nacho Fries will be available from 25 April this year.

The reintroduction of Nacho Fries marks the 11th time Taco Bell has featured this item, each time with a unique flavour profile.

The latest iteration incorporates Secret Aardvark’s Serrabanero sauce, which combines green tomatoes, roasted tomatillos, serrano, and green habanero pepper flavours.

The dish features crispy fries seasoned with bold Mexican spices and is topped with slow-roasted chicken, a three-cheese blend, reduced-fat sour cream, nacho cheese sauce, and pico de gallo.

Taco Bell global food innovations officer Liz Matthews said: “We’re thrilled to bring back fan favourite Nacho Fries for their 11th return, in a whole new way, with an extra flavourful partnership with Secret Aardvark.

“Secret Aardvark’s dedication to bold flavours and culinary innovation makes them the perfect partner for Taco Bell and our iconic Nacho Fries. Together, we’re taking flavour exploration to new heights, ensuring our fans experience the ultimate taste sensation with every bite.”

Last July, Taco Bell expanded its menu with the introduction of the grilled cheese dipping taco.

This new item, available across the US, is made with a three-cheese blend inside a fried white corn shell and is served with nacho cheese sauce and a savoury red sauce for dipping.
