When Taco Bell discontinued the Naked Chicken Chalupa -- you know, the insane taco with a shell made out of fried chicken -- after a limited-time run early last year, the fast food chain strongly hinted it’d only be a matter of time before the stunt food would take your digestive system by storm again. Well, just a little more than a year later, it looks like that time has finally arrived. Prepare yourself.
On Tuesday, Taco Bell announced the Naked Chicken Chalupa is officially returning to restaurants nationwide on Thursday, May 10, alongside what's dubbed as the all-new Wilder Naked Chicken Chalupa. So, what exactly makes the new version even "wilder" than the objectively wild original? We'll allow T-Bell to explain:
"The original Naked Chicken Chalupa is spicy in its own right with an all-white meat, raised without antibiotics crispy chicken shell, kicked up with bold Mexican spices and seasoning and packed with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese and creamy avocado ranch sauce," the chain said in a press release. "But the new Wilder Naked Chicken Chalupa takes the heat to the next level. Complete with the same crispy fried chicken shell and fillings, the wilder version is topped off with a bold, smoky Wild sauce that is bound to warm up taste buds."
