These Old El Paso Taco Shells Are Only Available At Walmart

Old El Paso is the beloved Tex-Mex brand many of us turn to for assistance with Taco Tuesdays. Its tacos, fajitas, enchilada, and burrito bowl dinner kits are things families can reach for when they want both convenience and flavor. The company undoubtedly earned new fans when it introduced Bold Nacho Cheese-Flavored Shells in 2014. Per Thrillist, these cheesy taco shells allowed home cooks to create their own versions of Taco Bell's Doritos Locos, and who doesn't love a good copycat recipe, right?

Well, Old El Paso is at it again. Per an announcement published by Business Wire, this time the brand is partnering with a snack food company to provide truly inspired Stand 'N Stuff Taco Shells that sound like they might leave your mouth on fire. If you get a big kick out of spicy food, maybe these shells will even become a must-have to pair with your favorite taco fillings and toppings. However, if you want to try them and set your taco dinners fire, you are going to have to head over to Walmart, or at the very least, because that's the only store where you will be able to find them. And you may want to run because they are also only available for a limited time.

They are only available through early 2022

Old El Paso announced that it has teamed up with Takis, a brand known for bold chips. Old El Paso shares these new taco shells will take on the tastes of Takis Fuego hot chili pepper and lime flavors. (Maybe they should come with a warning for heat-sensitive tongues. Achtung, baby!) The vice president for Walmart and General Mills said of this collab, "The Takis Fuego® and Old El Paso™ collaboration is focused on bold flavors and fun. We're introducing the newest breakthrough innovation that consumers have been searching for, meeting their needs for a spicy taco shell with unique flavor."

If you are someone who has those "needs," taco night might get a lot hotter thanks to these shells. And if this product is as addictive as scorching hot chips are that, per CBS Philly, can "irritate your stomach lining," you may need to have a reliable friend on hand to hold you back from eating all the shells before the taco filling is ready. These Takis Fuego-inspired shells can currently be purchased at Walmart stores across the country, but they will only be gracing the retail store's shelves through early 2022.
