Add some South of the Border to your McDonald’s order. The Golden Arches is celebrating the Great Tastes of the World with this ode to Mexican food: fried spicy nacho cheese wedges.The limited-edition menu item is unfortunately only available in the UK.

Each order of wedges comes with a sour cream and chive dipping sauce, and the bites themselves are covered in fried tortilla chips and stuffed with melted nacho cheese and jalapeño bits. Four cheese bites will set you back 1.69 GBP ($2.06).
