Taco Bell Nachos Supreme: Drunk Food for Under a Buck

Sure, when we're sober, we turn up our noses at the thought of Taco Bell (eating it is neither good for our image as foodies nor good for fitting into our skinny jeans).

But after a happy hour at Himmarshee Bar & Grille that turns into a late night at Elbo Room, the local Taco Bell looks mighty appealing to us -- especially after we spent all our money on booze.

From now until August 27, Taco Bell is offering its Nachos Supreme

for only 99 cents! Nacho chips dripping with neon-yellow nacho cheese

sauce are topped with seasoned beef*, sour cream, beans, and tomatoes.
