News: Taco Bell - New Spicy Chicken Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco

Rather than a new exterior, Taco Bell looked to changing up what was inside the shell for their latest Doritos Locos Taco, the new Spicy Chicken Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco. The "Spicy Chicken" is literally a new spicy shredded chicken rather than chicken and a spicy sauce (which was a prototype that I spotted testing last year).

The new taco is set to debut on May 1 and will only be available for a limited time.

The suggested price for the Spicy Chicken Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco (or, if you really like acronyms: the SCCR DLT) is $1.59 for the regular version (with shredded cheese and lettuce), and $1.89 for the supreme version (adds sour cream and diced tomatoes).
