    Didn’t the lava sauce cause you some sort of horrific digestive problems once? Or am I misremembering a past post? If the former— is it safe to pass along the guts corrosive concoction to the masses?

    Do you feel no sense of responsibility? Of Honor? A duty to keep your readers safe?

    Or has the addiction gone so far? πŸ™‚

    That’s only when mixed with a giant chocolate chip cookie from Starbucks. Having said that, I am making no claims that Lava Sauce is safe for consumption by humans. πŸ™‚

    Gotta love those recipes recipies!
    Can’t I use wasabi instead of lava? I mean, it doesn’t vaporize flesh off your face and has instant nasal decongestion as an added effect. You can’t go wrong with that!

    If you think you can’t go wrong with wasabi, you haven’t hung-out with me and my sushi-obsessed buddies. πŸ™‚

    You wrote this great article but preceded it with a misspelling in the title. You’re better than that. It’s spelled “recipe.” Cheers.

    I hate to break it to you all…however I think I found the recipe. I tried the recipe listed and submitted by Johnny Quest and found it to have no similarities to the actual Taco Bell Lava Sauce. It tasted like a Southwest mayo dip that would be great served with crackers. The other recipes that encourage you to use a can of nacho cheese sauce and taco sauce just didnt cut it. Again, tasted nothing like the actual sauce. After many trips to Taco Bell, I have found the perfect recipe. I encourage all of you to try this.

    Taco Bell Lava Sauce

    1 12oz. Box Velveeta Shells and Cheese SAUCE PACKET ONLY
    1/4 c. Mayo (only use real mayonnaise)
    10 Packets of Taco Bell Fire Sauce (the hottest)
    1/2 t. Lemon Juice
    1/2 t. Vinegar
    1 t. Water
    1 1/2 t. Cayanne Pepper
    1/2 t. Garlic Powder
    1/2 t. Onion Powder
    1/2 t. Ground Cumin
    1/4 t. Chili Powder
    1/2 t. Kosher Salt

    Mix All ingredients together in a small mixing bowl. Cover tightly and let sit over night. Use as needed. This sauce will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week or so.

    I WISH all of you who are Lava lovers to try this recipe!! I love it and im positive that you all will too!!

    P.S. Let me know what you think.

    I can attest to this recipe…if anything, it actually tastes BETTER than lava sauce. I’ve been using this recipe for a few years now and I make it in bulk.

    There’s nothing else close and I’ve even taken it to Taco Bell and they asked if they could have some because they miss it.

    You guys are kidding, right? Volcano, or “Lava” sauce is a no-brainer. Get a jar of nacho cheese (any kind) and a bottle of Texas Pete’s, Trappey’s or similar. Take a saucepan and set the stove to medium. Start with half a cup of cheese, add maybe 3 tablespoons of sauce, and stir. Taste once thoroughly mixed, then adjust ratio of cheese to sauce until the desired result is achieved.

    It isn’t any more complicated than that.

    I really loved that volcano sauce, too bad they donΒ΄t make it anymore.
    Anyway, yesterday I bought a sauce at the supermarket that reminded me VERY much of Taco BellΒ΄s volcano sauce and I am so happy about that!! The only difference I can find is that it is not as HOT and probably the cheesy taste of it is not as sharp. Maybe you could try it and modify it a bit.
    Its Barilla “Pesto alla Calabrese con Peperoni”. Not sure if the label is also available in English, but its REALLY delicious-like a milder lava sauce.

    By the way, I think all those recipes mentioned earlier would be better with SOUR CREAM instead of mayonaise. And I would add chipotle peppers in adobo sauce instead of Taco bells Fire sauce. They are way tastier.
