Mexican Pizza had its comeback. Now another Taco Bell item is set to return from menu exile. And the fast-food chain is leaving it to customers to choose which one -- the Double Decker Taco or Enchirito.

Taco Bell will bring back one of those two options before the end of 2022. The item will be available only for a limited time, the company said last week. 

Those wanting to once again savor one of the creations can cast a daily vote in the Taco Bell app through Oct. 6. (You'll need to have a Taco Bell rewards account and be signed in to vote.) 

According to the app, the Enchirito is in the lead as of this writing on Oct. 3. The votes are split roughly 60-40, so the Double Decker Taco has some catching up to do before a winner is announced on Oct. 7. 

The Double Decker Taco and Enchirito are among Taco Bell's most requested items that no longer are sold, according to the restaurant chain. 

The Double Decker Taco involves an outer layer of a soft flour tortilla spread with beans. That encapsulates a crunchy taco shell filled with beef, lettuce and cheddar cheese. Taco Bell discontinued it in 2019.

The Enchirito consists of a beef-, bean- and onion-loaded soft flour tortilla, which is rolled up, coated in red sauce and topped with cheddar cheese. It left Taco Bell quite a bit earlier than the Double Decker Taco, in 2013. 

Taco Bell recently brought back its Mexican Pizza -- a pizza sauce-topped option that sandwiches beef and beans between two fried flour tortillas -- after removing it in 2020.
