Taco Bell Brings Back Naked Egg Taco, Tests New Toasted Cheese Chalupa

Taco Bell has been stepping up the value menu game lately, with both the Dollar Stacker and their fries turning into cult favorites. The taco titan is now bringing back one of their more innovative items from the past year: The Naked Egg Taco.

This unique breakfast item, consisting of an egg “taco shell,” returns to the breakfast menu for a limited time starting March 8th. You can purchase Naked Egg Tacos as part of a two for $3.49 deal.

The Naked Egg Tacos will, once again, be available in two different options: bacon or sausage. They also come filled with seasoned potatoes, melted cheddar, and nacho cheese sauce. The option to “dress up” the tacos with a Gordita flatbread will also be available.

Taco Bell’s also continuing their shell innovation with a new, cheesy chalupa shell. Called the Toasted Cheese Chalupa, it’s got crispy aged cheddar on the outside that makes it sound like a cross between a cheese bagel and a taco shell. It’ll be available in two different forms: a Breakfast Toasted Cheese Chalupa and a Toasted Cheese Chalupa. The morning meal form comes with scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, and nacho cheese sauce. The regular version swaps out the eggs and bacon/sausage for ground beef.

Both Toasted Cheese Chalupa options will be available as a limited-time test in West Virginia (specifically, Charleston and Huntington), starting March 8th.

Taco Bell Flips Breakfast Inside Out With Their NEW Naked Egg Taco

Earlier this year, Taco Bell showcased one of the most revolutionary menu items ever created when it began testing the Naked Egg Taco, a breakfast taco held together with a fried egg shell. Now, starting August 31, the Naked Egg Taco will become a limited time offer on Taco Bell menus across the nation.   

Taco Bell fans went crazy after tasting this game-changing breakfast item for the first time back in April, and we can see why — it’s filled with deliciously crispy potatoes, your choice of bacon or sausage, and melty cheese.

Still, developing a fried egg shell for this reinvented breakfast staple is a perfect example of Taco Bell sitting on the cutting edge of culinary innovation and experience, a mission that Liz Matthews, Chief Food Innovation Officer at Taco Bell, plans to accomplish.

“Shell innovation is at the core of where we experiment—whether it’s crispy chicken, biscuits, or waffles that wrap up menu item classics,” Matthews said. “We bring our fans crave-able and unexpected food experiences that leave them wanting more.”

Adding to a list of already unforgettable brand experiences across the nation — like the Taco Bell Cantinas that offer full-on wedding services — Taco Bell is now putting restaurant reservations on the table.

On August 17, Taco Bell and OpenTable will give fans in select cities a chance to reserve a table for “Bell & Breakfast,” a brunch-themed event featuring the Naked Egg Taco prior to its official launch on August 31.

Better mark your calendars for breakfast Taco Bell-style.
