Just in time for Cinco de Mayo (which just so happens to sync up with Taco Tuesday this year!), Taco Bell has unveiled an at-home taco kit that’s available for pick-up or delivery.
That “At Home Taco Bar” can feed up to six people for $25. The taco kit comes with all the fixings you need for supreme tacos, including eight flour tortillas, 12 crunchy taco shells, six ounces of nacho chips, seasoned beef, shredded lettuce, refried beans, nacho cheese sauce, diced tomatoes, cheddar cheese, reduced-fat sour cream and hot sauce packets.
Not only can you re-create crunchy and soft tacos at home, but, because the ingredients are deconstructed, you can also make other Taco Bell menu favorites.
The fast-food chain’s blog has recipe cards with instructions on how to assemble Taco Bell classics and new recipes from the test kitchen. You’ll find step-by-step instructions on how to make Double Decker Taco, Nachos Supreme, 7-Layer Dip and a Nacho Crunch Quesadilla with nacho cheese.
As a bonus, Taco Bell shared cocktail recipes on the blog post, too. Pick up a Mountain Dew Baja Blast from Taco Bell and spike it with some ginger beer and add lime and you’ve got a Mountain Dew Baja Blast Mexican Mule.
Or, the Wild Strawberry Freeze can be turned into a fruity tequila sunrise with a blanco tequila, fresh orange and orange juice.
You can check out the Wild Strawberry Freeze in its original form on @tacobell’s Instagram page.
