Taco Bell's 'Volcano Taco' Is Spicy, Made with Red Crunchy Shell

Tired of the bland corn-colored crunchy shells at Taco Bell? They now have red ones in honor of the 89-cent Volcano Taco, part of the "Why Pay More!" value menu. The red shell is stuffed with grated cheddar, green lettuce, cheesy "lava" sauce, and ground beef, what Fast Food Critic is calling "possibly the spiciest sauce on their menu." He thinks the "volcano" cheese sauce is even more fiery than Taco Bell's "fire sauce." Unfortunately the red taco shell tasted like a regular shell, but could introduce the possibility of a red soft tortilla.
