In July, Taco Bell brought back the beloved nacho fries to the menu, and even added a “loaded” Nacho Fry menu options to spice things up even further.

Now, the popular tex-mex chain is launching TRUFF hot sauce, the latest new menu item that is guaranteed to take the nacho fries to the next level.

Taco Bell announced the partnership with TRUFF, a hot sauce that uses truffle in its sauces, and plans to incorporate it into their signature Nacho Fries recipe.

"We're always looking for ways to serve up new innovations to our fans, and this partnership with TRUFF takes our beloved Nacho Fries to a new level," said Rene Pisciotti, Executive Chef at Taco Bell Corp. "TRUFF is rapidly growing and becoming the go-to, luxury hot sauce line, so it makes total sense for us to join forces and bring the world new spicy creations."

In a press release, the company states the truffle hot sauce “reimagines” and “elevates” two fan-favorited menu items: Loaded TRUFF Nacho Fries and the loaded TRUFF Fries Burrito.

The Loaded TRUFF Nacho Fries feature boldly seasoned fries topped with steak, TRUFF Nacho Cheese Sauce, shredded cheddar cheese, tomato and reduced-fat sour cream.  The Loaded TRUFF Fries Burrito includes all of the ingredients of the Loaded TRUFF Nacho Fries wrapped in a warm tortilla.

"We are constantly inspired by Taco Bell's ability to evolve with pop culture and create conversation-generating experiences, which is why the brand immediately stood out as the perfect partner for our first-ever QSR offering," says Nick Guillen, Co-Founder and Co-CEO at TRUFF. "Together, we've created an unexpected mashup of TRUFF and Taco Bell sauces that is distinctively delicious. We are excited to share this game-changing sauce and elevate the conventions of fast-food."

The Loaded TRUFF Nacho Fries and the Loaded TRUFF Fries Burrito are both currently testing at only one Taco Bell location in Newport Beach, CA until August 31.
