If you needed any excuse to skip the grocery store this week and order in every single night all in the spirit of self-care, here's your sign to do just that. Taco Bell surprised us all with the Monday morning news we needed: The Chalupa slinger is releasing three all-new menu items set to debut this week.

On February 10, T-Bell will unleash its new Flamin' Hot Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos. If the news sounds familiar, that's because Doritos unveiled that flavor of chip back in December. The taco features a crunchy shell coated in Doritos Flamin' Hot Cool Ranch flavoring and loaded with toppings. You can snag the new offering a la carte or in Supreme form for $2.49.

"2022 also marks the 10th anniversary of the first DLT launch at Taco Bell, as well as the Taco Bell brand's 60th anniversary," the chain said in a newsletter. "The new Flamin' Hot Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos provide an opportunity to celebrate the beloved menu item that's become a staple fan-favorite, but with a new spicy twist."

That's not the only new addition hitting the menu.

Taco Bell also announced the debut of its Cantina Crispy Chicken Tacos and Cantina Crispy Chicken Tortada

The former features crispy white meat chicken marinated in a jalapeño buttermilk sauce and rolled in a crispy tortilla chip coating (is your mouth watering yet?) topped with shredded lettuce, shredded cheddar, and diced tomatoes in a soft flour taco shell. You can then choose Creamy Chipotle or Avocado Ranch as a sauce. The tortada iteration includes the same fixings but is wrapped in a tortilla and grilled.

The tacos are now available nationwide $2.29 a pop, while the tortada will set you back around 4.99. Unfortunately, the tortada is only available as part of a test rollout at locations in the Sacramento, California area for now.
