    This was causing me an undue amount of stress, the waiting and hoping for the return of this fine sauce.

  3. Peter says:

    Bring back the chipotle sauce (in the purple packets)

  4. MP says:

    I wonder how much of this is old inventory. They should put the MIA Lava sauce in packets.

    “il never get plp and their stupid pakets.. just get a good hot sauce and douse it on ur meal.. easy…no time fir messy stupid packets” — I never met anyone who had so much trouble with sauce packets. I’m fairly certain there’s a Youtube video that can walk you through both the opening of the packet and the distribution of sauce in a time-efficient manner. Baby steps!!

    • MP says:

      Does “Blousey” rhyme with “lousy”? Like, “Here comes the lousy Blousey post!”? No, I WON’T get off your lawn!
      I don’t think anybody is taking any of this seriously.

    This is the best sauce and I’m glad it’s back for good. Time to get some crunchy tacos this weekend ;]

    This got me back to Taco Bell for the first time in years; and I thought the Diablo was delicious! It had a great amount of kick AND flavor to it.
    Now if Taco Bell would just give you a decent amount of beef for the price…..

    This is by no means the hottest hot sauce of all time. It may be the hottest sauce Taco Bell has ever had. I still say it tastes like Cholula Red but that is a good thing. It’s about at the limit of my tolerance, maybe slightly beyond. If it were any hotter I wouldn’t actually enjoy it. So, welcome back El Diablo!

      The thing is there are those of us that love a bit more heat than this, I’d consider this one to be at the level they should have ‘hot’ at. This should be more of a secret menu item that they isn’t ordered all that often just for hot heads like myself.

      Don’t get me wrong, it’s good and I’m glad they brought something spicy in, but yeah. I could do with 4-5x that heat to start with, if your sinuses aren’t clear after eating a sauce it just isn’t right.

    I tried some and found it to be sweet. Fire sauce still seemed hotter. I was really excited to try this, but it was a big let down.

    • doctorx0079 says:

      To me this is noticeably hotter than Fire Sauce.

      • Nick says:

        I’ll try it again sometime. Do you notice a good bit of sweetness in it? Wish they’d keep Lava sauce around.

        • doctorx0079 says:

          Not really, but I think it tastes very close to Cholula red. I don’t know why they don’t keep Lava Sauce around. It has such a cult following now.
