We tried Taco Bell’s White Hot Ranch Nacho Fries. Here’s how it went.

This menu item is a bite to say, and it’s an even bigger bite to eat. It’s a godsend of different sauces and toppings working together to create a tex-mex riff on the poutine. The base of this dish is Taco Bell fries, which are dusted with orange taco seasoning. In addition to the fries, you get three different sauces: Reduced Fat Sour Cream, Nacho Cheese Sauce, and White Hot Ranch. According to Nation’s Restaurant News, the White Hot Ranch is made with very hot ghost peppers, so it should pack a real punch.

As if that weren’t enough, there’s also a scattering of shredded cheddar cheese for good measure. The fries are sprinkled with small nuggets of steak from Taco Bell. Don’t worry, there are also vegetables. We’d like to think that the few cubes of diced tomatoes tossed in with the fries surely thwarts the onslaught of cheese, meat, and fried potatoes.

The ingredient list for Steak White Hot Ranch Nacho Fries reads like a scientific journal article. Nothing is as simple as it seems. The seasoned fries themselves without toppings contain over 20 ingredients. Steak is not just steak, but an amalgamation of beef, water, seasonings and starch. But we know the deal we make when we sign up to eat Taco Bell. It will be artificial food, and it will probably be delicious.
