While Taco Bell reigns supreme when it comes to an American take on Mexican cusine, now Wendy's is borrowing some flavors from south of the border to come up with its brand-new Taco Salad.

The new Taco Salad is a meal-sized dish that the chain plans to roll out nation-wide in the coming weeks. The new salad is similar to Wendy's Baja Salad, which is no longer on the menu. The new version of the dish consists of mixed greens, diced tomatoes, red onions and shredded cheddar cheese topped with a serving of chili. The salad also comes with packets of salsa, sour creme and tortilla chips for dipping.

While the idea of adding chili to salad may seem unusual, the dish is perfectly suited to the cool fall temperatures looming ahead.
