Free Doritos Locos Tacos From Taco Bell in January

If your New Year's resolution doesn't involve counting calories, losing weight, or giving up liquor, you might just be excited for Taco Bell's first promotion of 2015.

For the entire month of January you can get free Doritos Locos tacos, the perfect cure for all those late-night hunger pangs, fast food indulgences -- even your hangover. But, of course, there's one small catch.

You'll have to download Taco Bell's mobile app, first. Like fellow chain restaurants Panda Express, White Castle, and Starbucks, the Taco Bell mobile ordering and pay portal makes getting your fast food even faster -- and easier.

Even Wendy's has begun testing a new ordering app, now available at six central Ohio restaurants in advance of a national rollout later this year.

The latest version of the Taco Bell app -- which launched in October 2014 for both Android and iPhone users -- allows people to create a custom order, pay for it, and save their order and payment preferences for future purchases. It also gives customers access to promotions and coupons for local stores. Best of all: it even signals when you've arrived at the store, so no cold food.

According to Huffington Post, there's already been over 1 million downloads of the app that lets customers place on order redeemable for one free taco (one per each mobile purchase).

Thanks Taco Bell: that's possibly the greatest way to say "Happy New Year."
