Taco Bell is adding fries to the menu.

The Mexican fast-food chain announced on Wednesday that it is adding nacho fries to the menu, beginning on January 25.

The fries, served with a dippable side of nacho cheese, will cost just $1.

Customers can also order “Supreme” fries for $2.49, or the larger serving of “Bell Grande” fries for $3.49, served with even more toppings: beef, pico de gallo, nacho cheese, sour cream, and additional add-ons like guacamole, bacon, and jalapeño peppers.

The news comes just one day before McDonald’s rolls out its new Dollar Menu, which does not include fries. Typically, a small order of fries costs around $1.29 at McDonald’s.

Taco Bell tested fries in West Virginia and Bakersfield, California, last spring.

According to a Business Insider taste tester who visited a test location, the fries are nicely seasoned and spicier than most other fast-food fries on the market, pairing nicely with nacho cheese. The Supreme fries are a bit more difficult to eat, as the toppings overload can turn the crisp fries nonfunctional and soggy.
