Taco Bell is adding a biscuit taco to its national menu beginning March 26. It is exactly what it sounds like — a biscuit shaped like a taco that can be stuffed with “eggs, sausage, cheese or deep-fried chicken and jalapeño honey sauce,” the Associated Press reports. “It has between 370 and 470 calories, depending on the fillings.”
The biscuit taco is an attempt to offer something fresh and different and paint McDonald’s breakfast offerings as staid, USA Today reports. Just like the waffle taco promotion last year, the chain sees the new sandwich as a way of establishing Taco Bell as a place to go in the morning. As Taco Bell CEO Brian Niccol told the newspaper, “We have to train people that we’re now open for breakfast.”
The newspaper reports that Taco Bell also plans to test a taco shell made out of Fritos and hopes it will be the next Doritos Locos Taco.
