Taco Bell may be known for its loaded tacos and over-the-top burritos, but now the Mexican-style chain is attempting to take on French fries by testing out a crispy new side dish spiced with habaneros.

Taco Bell's seasoned French fries is a new dish that is currently being tested at one location in Irvine, California. The new dish consists of crispy French fries spiced with habaneros for a dose of heat and extra flavor. The fries can also be ordered 'loaded' with ground beef, onions, diced tomatoes, guacamole and sour cream -- just like the chain's existing Nacho Supreme.

While French fries may seem like a departure from Taco Bell's Mexican-oriented fare, the chain has been serving similar dishes abroad for some time now.
