Team Enchirito wins: Taco Bell bringing back fan favorite after vote

The votes are in, and the Enchirito fans have it: Taco Bell’s Enchirito is coming back for a limited time after a fan vote.

Taco Bell announced the winner on Twitter Friday. The fast food Mexican chain launched a campaign on Sept. 27 allowing fans to vote for the return of one of two discontinued menu items. It was between the Enchirito and the Double Decker Taco.

The Enchirito was introduced on Taco Bell’s menu in 1970 and removed in 2013. It’s made up of a soft flour tortilla with seasoned beef, beans and diced onions all rolled up and smothered with red sauce, then topped with melted cheddar cheese. It returns to the menu Nov. 17.

The company says they were inspired by the "love and passion" they saw from fans with the return of the Mexican Pizza.
