Taco Bell Brings Back Lava Sauce

Spicy Lava sauce is back at Taco Bell, but only for a limited-time.

The spicy sauce, which used to be featured in the chain's since-discontinued Volcano menu, is being featured in the new Volcano Quesarito, which was also the platform the chain went with when it offered a limited-time version of Sriracha sauce.

The new, limited-time Volcano Quesarito consists of a filling of seasoned beef, premium Latin rice, Lava sauce, and reduced-fat sour cream wrapped up in a grilled, 3-cheese quesadilla.

The suggested price tag for the Volcano Quesarito starts at $2.49 for the beef version, $2.99 for the shredded chicken version, and $3.29 for the steak version (may vary). It basically costs the same as the chain's regular Quesarito. The new menu item is also available in the Volcano Quesarito Box, which includes a Volcano Quesarito, a Nacho Cheese DLT (Doritos Locos Taco), a Crunchy Taco, and a medium fountain drink for $5.99.

If you're unfamiliar with Taco Bell's Lava sauce, it's described by the chain as a "unique spicy sauce that is full of cheese flavor and heat from red jalapeno peppers."

I reached out to Taco Bell regarding an end date for the sauce but was told they don't have one to share yet, so it's "get it while you can" at this point.
