Now you can make your own Taco Bells tacos at home. 

Timed to be available for Cinco de Mayo celebrations, the fast-food chain is offering an At Home Taco Bar ($25), which has all the ingredients for tacos packed individually for you to build as you wish.

The spread, which feeds up to six, includes flour tortillas, crunchy taco shells, seasoned beef, shredded lettuce, shredded cheddar cheese, nacho chips and cheese sauce, reduced fat sour cream, tomatoes, refried beans, and hot sauce packets. For a limited time, you can order the At Home Taco Bar on the Taco Bell mobile app, get it via the restaurants’ contactless drive thru or order using Grubhub (check www.tacobell.com/delivery for availability).

Taco Bell came up with the At Home Taco Bar as a way to spice up family dinners and online video gatherings during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“Our food has always been a catalyst of bringing people together, and we’re finding new ways to do this from a safe distance until we can all be together again,” said Melissa Friebe, senior vice president of brand marketing and consumer insights at Taco Bell, in a news release announcing the taco banquet. “No matter the meal they create, we’re excited to give fans a new at-home Taco Bell experience.”

In case you aren’t sure how to combine the ingredients to make tacos or other dishes, Taco Bell has posted some recipes for items including its Double-Decker Taco on the Taco Bell blog. The At Home Taco Bar will be available while supplies last after May 5.
