Taco Bell is adding a new menu item that fans might not associate with the taco chain — and it's only available for a week. The fast food restaurant is adding crispy chicken wings beginning January 6 for a limited time at its US locations. Taco Bell said each order contains five, bone-in wings that are coated in a queso seasoning and served with a spicy ranch dipping sauce. They'll be sold only after 2 pm and cost $5.99.
"Taco Bell is no stranger to taking a familiar favorite and putting a unique spin on it (nacho fries, anyone?!) and wings are the latest creation from the test kitchen masterminds," the chain said about the unusual menu addition. Chicken wings have been on fast-food menus for years (remember McDonald's Mighty Wings?), but they've become even more popular lately because people have been craving comfort food during the pandemic. Chili's parent company Brinker International, Applebee's and even DJ Khaled have expanded their chicken wing offerings.
