Taco Bell Is Bringing Back Potatoes In March

Here’s something you may no longer be used to: good news! Taco Bell announced today that it is bringing back its potato options in just a few weeks.

In the announcement, Taco Bell said that its Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes and the Spicy Potato Soft Taco will be back PERMANENTLY starting on March 11. They were originally taken off menus last summer in order to simplify Taco Bell’s menu options, which, while totally valid, definitely broke some hearts. But now, they’re on their way back and carb fans can breathe easily. The Spicy Potato Soft Taco will be just $1 and the Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes are $1.49 at participating locations. You can also easily swap meat for potatoes or beans on any of Taco Bell’s menu items if you’re looking for more veggie-friendly options.

The chain also announced that it would be beefing up (haaaaaha) its vegetarian options, teaming up with Beyond Meat to create a new plant-based protein that will be tested within the next year. It’s not clear what exactly this innovation will look like, but our fingers are personally crossed for a Beyond Doritos Locos Taco. YUM. This will be Taco Bell’s first time testing out plant-based meat in the U.S. and we couldn’t be more excited about it…and the potatoes. Still psyched about those too!

I dunno about you, but my stomach growled just THINKING about getting a forkful of Taco Bell’s cheesy potatoes! May we never take them for granted again!
