Taco Bell teases a new flavor of the taco and chip mashup.

Taco Bell's infamous Doritos Locos Tacos is getting another member of the family; today Taco Bell announced that they'll be launching a new Doritos Locos Taco on August 22 nationwide, according to a press release.

The Doritos Locos Tacos, which replace a standard crunchy taco shell with a taco shell made of Doritos chips, have become one of the brand's best-selling items. "Nacho Cheese. Cool Ranch. What's next? It's coming 8.22.13. #_DLT," the brand tweeted.

According to a press release, Taco Bell will be "adding más heat this summer with the arrival of the next yet-to-be revealed Doritos® Locos Tacos on August 22nd," and while they're keeping the actual flavor quiet, it seems obvious that the next choice should be Spicy Nachos Doritos. Back in June, the brand tweeted a Vine video that showed the words "New DLT" lit up in flames.

Keep your eye on Twitter to catch any hints they may release, then start taking bets on the next flavor. There is a slim chance that it might be the jalapeño-flavored Doritos chips, after all. Less popular, but it would still be a great addition to the stoner food menu.

Update: The Daily Meal has received a shipment of Doritos flavors that might just be the next flavor: Ranch-Dipped Hot Wings, Spicy Chipotle Barbecue, Enchilada Supreme, Flamas, Salsa Verde, and Tapatíos are top contenders.
