If you’re a Taco Bell fan then the news that their Mexican Pizza is returning permanently September 15 is exciting! The restaurant chain is also testing something new here in Charlotte. Taco Bell is testing a new flatbread at select locations in Charlotte.

According to Delish, the Cheesy Chipotle Chicken Flatbread is similar to pizza. It features flame-grilled all-white-meat chicken, a creamy chipotle sauce, crunchy tri-color tortilla strips, onion and a three-cheese blend toasted on a buttery flatbread. You can also add jalapenos for a little zing.

You can try out the new menu item locally for $3.99. It’s also available as part of a $6.99 combo that also includes a Crunchy Taco and a large fountain drink. No word on if the item will go on the menu permanently, but my guess is if the tasting goes well here in Charlotte, it’ll eventually be available nationwide.

Phil and I may have to try this item out! It looks yummy and I like a good flatbread. We’ll have to find a participating location and do a taste-test video!
