Taco Bell Spicy Chicken Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco: Announcement via Snapchat

There's a new Doritos taco in town and it's a real chicken.

Taco Bell has just announced Spicy Chicken Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos will be available on Thursday, May 1, for a limited time.

This is the fourth in a line of Doritos Locos tacos, the first being the Nacho Cheese, which catapulted the Mexican fast food chain to unprecedented success after its launch in 2012.

The idea behind the new taco actually came from the trenches. The company started noticing customers customizing Doritos Loco tacos but substituting out chicken for the standard ground beef filling.

The announcement was made last night through a live Snapchat Stories film, which promoted Taco Bell fans to follow the restaurant on Snapchat at @TacoBell for a special announcement.

The regular Taco Bell Spicy Chicken Cool Ranch Doritos Locos taco will sell form $1.59 and the supreme will cost $1.89.
