Speaking of restaurants embracing other cultures, Taco Bell released new Nacho Fries in January, according to USA Today.

The fries come with Mexican seasoning and nacho dipping sauce.

The Nacho Fries, which will have a limited release, cost only $1. Add-ons can increase the price to $2.49 or $3.49 depending on how much more stuff customers want to pile on, the Deseret News reported.
