Taco Bell Brings Back Nacho Fries With Secret Aardvark Collab

Taco Bell is bringing back its popular Nacho Fries, this time around (the 11th  comeback, if anyone is keeping track) in collaboration with Portland, Oregon-based hot sauce maker Secret Aardvark, beginning April 25.

Touted as “their longest run on national menus ever” lasting through the summer, the Secret Aardvark Nacho Fries have a “bold punch of spice” due to  Serrabanero Ranch Sauce, made from green tomatoes, roasted tomatillos, serrano and green habanero peppers blended with ranch. The sauce, exclusive to Taco Bell, tops the Mexican seasoned fries along with chicken, a three-cheese blend, sour cream, Nacho Cheese sauce and pico de gallo.

"Secret Aardvark's dedication to bold flavors and culinary innovation makes them the perfect partner for Taco Bell and our iconic Nacho Fries,” said Liz Matthews, global food innovations officer in a release.



Taco Bell, teaming up with Portland-based artist Bryce Wong, has planned a "Tuesday Drop” of the item specially for Taco Bell Rewards members.

"The opportunity to bring Secret Aardvark's crafted moxie to the beloved Nacho Fries nationwide is a significant milestone for us," says Secret Aardvark Owner, Stacy Moritz. TThe brand’s seven hot sauces and marinades are available in restaurants and grocery stores nationwide.

The company is also upping its sustainability game with TerraCycle, Taco Bell's Sauce Container US Recycling Program. The program has recently expanded to accept not only any brand of used sauce packets, but “also any 2 oz souffle cups/lids (the vessel of beloved nacho cheese sauce), sauce dipping cups, and coffee creamer pods.” Customers can mail in  used, empty packaging throughout the month of May and earn 80 bonus Taco Bell Rewards points.
