LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - MARCH 30: An exterior view shows a Taco Bell restaurant on March 30, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Taco Bell Corp. announced that on March 31, 2020, the company will give everyone in the country one free beef nacho cheese Doritos Locos Taco, no purchase necessary, to drive-thru customers at participating locations while supplies last as a way of thanking people who are helping their communities in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The company also announced it would relaunch its Round Up program, which gives customers the option to "round up" their order total to the nearest dollar, to raise funds for the No Kid Hungry campaign. The Taco Bell Foundation will also be donating $1 million dollars to the campaign. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)

Yet another fast-food chain looks to be entering the chicken sandwich wars…but with a twist.

Taco Bell just announced that starting next month they are going to be testing out what they are calling the Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco. The “sandwich” will be served “in a puffy bread, shaped in an iconic taco form and filled with a piece of crispy tortilla chicken.” It will also feature chipotle sauce, with a spicier version adding crunchy jalapeño slices.

Testing will begin March 11th in Nashville, Tennessee and right here in Charlotte!  The taco is selling for $2.49. It will only be available for a limited time, but the chain said the taco is expected to debut nationwide later this year. They also teased that the Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco isn’t the “only crispy chicken innovation arriving in 2021.”

You gonna try it? I’m down!
