Taco Bell Is Now Offering DIY Taco Bar Kits
Just in time for Cinco de Mayo!
Everyone loves a taco bar, especially for Cinco de Mayo. Taco Bell has found a way to set you up to celebrate at home.
The marketing-savvy Mexican-food chain has created an At-Home Taco Bar, available, for a limited time, by delivery or at the contactless drive-through window at locations nationwide starting today, May 1. The DIY taco kit includes ingredients – each individually packed and sealed – for, basically, everything you need for a taco party.
You’ll get eight soft flour tortillas, 12 crunchy taco shells, six ounces of nacho tortilla chips, seasoned beef, refried beans, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, cheddar cheese, nacho cheese sauce, sour cream, packets of hot sauce and, because you’re assuredly going to dig in and get your hands dirty, napkins. Prices will vary a bit, depending on location, but you if you budget about $25 you should be good to go.
Each kit officially serves six, but if you don’t have that many people in your household, probably best just to share leftovers with your roomies or family members, because, among other things, more for you!
In addition to all the ingredients you’ll need to build your own tacos, the chain is also rolling out a series of recipe cards from the Taco Bell Test Kitchen. Each card will offer guidance to help you create classic Taco Bell menu items, blasts from the past like the Double-Decker Taco, as well as new ones. Taco Bell also plans to release recipe cards for brand-inspired cocktails and mocktails, such as a Taco Bell Strawberry Freeze Tequila Sunrise. You’ll find the recipe cards on Taco Bell’s blog starting Sunday, May 3, so you’ll have two days to perfect your technique before your Cinco de Mayo celebrations begin.
Oh, and if you’re planning to party virtually, these downloadable Taco Bell-themed conference call backdrops might come in handy. Yeah, they’re kind of fire.
