Taco Bell has announced that it is bringing potatoes back to its menu.

Customers were beyond angry after the fast food chain removed several items a year ago, including a couple that included potatoes.

But starting on March 11, those two items, Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes and the Spicy Potato Soft Taco, will be available at Taco Bell restaurants, CNN reports.

When they were originally axed, the company said the potato bites took time to prepare. But after the uproar, Taco Bell started plans to bring the spuds back.

The chain says Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes and the Spicy Potato Soft Taco are part of its commitment to vegetarians.
