A tasty refresh could be coming soon for Taco Bell's value menu. Reports suggest the fast-food chain is testing out additional $1 items in select markets, including a Spicy Taco in Columbus and a Primo Burrito in Kansas City.

The Spicy Taco features the classic warm flour tortilla, seasoned beef, lettuce and cheddar cheese, as well as either a mild jalapeño, medium chipotle or white-hot ranch sauce made with ghost chili peppers and buttermilk.

Similarly, the Primo Burrito features a warm flour tortilla filled with seasoned beef, lettuce, reduced-fat sour cream, cheddar cheese and crunchy red strips.

For 49 cents more, buyers can get a Chicken Enchilada Primo Burrito with white meat chicken, reduced-fat sour cream, seasoned rice, enchilada sauce and cheese.

In addition to these $1 items, Taco Bell is measuring interest in a Stacked Bowl (Portland only), a Grilled Cheese Stacker (Houston only) and a Chicken Enchilada Grilled Cheese Burrito (Cleveland only).

The Stacked Bowl combines either seasoned taco beef, avocado ranch chicken or a steak melt variety with a blend of lettuce and a brand new veggie topping – crunchy purple cabbage. Ok, ok.

Meanwhile, the Grilled Cheese Stacker pairs a warm flour tortilla and seasoned beef with a three-cheese blend and melty nacho cheese sauce. All of that is then folded into T-Bell's iconic tri-fold (i.e., the Crunchwrap Supreme look) and topped with grilled cheese.

Lastly, the Chicken Enchilada Grilled Cheese Burrito (already convinced) uses a warm flour tortilla to hold some chicken, rice, a three-cheese blend, crunchy red strips, enchilada sauce, sour cream, and a layer of grilled cheese. Mmm.

Stay tuned for an official word on if and when this grub will make its nationwide debut.
