Taco Bell has an early – and cheesy – Christmas gift for fans of its Nacho Fries.
The seasoned fries that come with nacho sauce return for a limited time beginning Christmas Eve.
The fast-food chain also is adding the $1 Loaded Nacho Taco, Taco and Burrito Cravings Pack and Bacon Club Chalupa to the menu, months after removing several items from it.
The chain first added Nacho Fries as a limited-time item in 2018. It has brought them back several times.
In November as part of streamlining the menu amid COVID-19, Taco Bell removed the Mexican pizza and items with shredded chicken from the Shredded Chicken Soft Taco to Shredded Chicken Quesadilla Melt.

It also removed a dozen items in August including the Grilled Steak Soft Taco, 7-Layer Burrito, Quesarito, Nachos Supreme, Beefy Fritos Burrito, Spicy Tostada, Chips & Dips and the Mini Skillet Bowl.
Nacho Fries will be available a la carte for $1.39 and in a $5 box featuring Nacho Fries, a Beefy 5-Layer Burrito, a Crunchy Taco and a medium fountain drink. Prices can vary by location.
Taco Bell restaurants are closed on Christmas, according to holiday hours listed on its website. (Here’s a list of the stores and restaurants open Friday.)
Starting Monday, Dec. 28, Doritos’ new three-dimensional snack dubbed 3D Crunch will hit store shelves and come in Spicy Ranch and Chili Cheese Nacho.
