Volcano Nachos is the latest addition to Taco Bell’s Volcano Menu. It is basically composed of Taco Bell’s ordinary tortilla chips topped with ground beef, beans, tortilla strips (red),cheese, Volcano Sauce, jalapenos, and sour cream (reduced fat as advertised).
The first time I saw this was when we drove through our neighborhood Taco Bell branch. The picture on the poster was so appealing as if its tempting me to give it a try. I was hesitant to order the Volcano Nacho at first because I was thinking that it is just a dressed-up Nachos Bell Grande and the price is something to think about (it costs more or less $3.79 a piece).
I immediately remembered Adam Richman (host of Man vs. Food) and his hot ramen challenge at Orochon. That guy is really a tough one (I salute you Adam). I bet he could eat Volcano Nachos thrice a day without complaining about the heat. As for ordinary guys like me, having Volcano Nachos once a month or so is just enough.
In my opinion, Volcano Nachos is still a great treat but it could be better if they lessen the heat and the price as well.
