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.
