On Tuesday, Austin-based Yellowbird Hot Sauce announced a collaboration with national fast-food chain Taco Bell.

Taco Bell is bringing nacho fries back to the menu on April 13, and they'll be topped with queso, steak, and Yellowbird Spicy Habanero Ranch. Diners can also add the limited-edition sauce to any menu item.

George Milton, CEO of Yellowbird, says, “This partnership is a testament to both the growing popularity of Yellowbird and Taco Bell's commitment to taking risks and offering unique and exciting menu items for their customers. We can't wait for everyone to experience the delicious, spicy taste of Yellowbird in this exciting new form."

Yellowbird Nacho Fries will cost $4.99. Your mileage may vary in terms of what they will cost you after you eat them.
