Taco Bell's newest food creation just might burn your taste buds.

The fast-food chain is doling out the heat this week as it launches the Cheddar Habanero Quesarito. The concoction is a burrito made with a quesadilla as a shell instead of a traditional tortilla. Of course, Taco Bell has added a bit of a habanero kick to its latest iteration of the hybrid food item.

The spicy quesarito is now part of the company's $5 Taco Bell Big Box, which also includes a Doritos Locos Taco, a Crunchy Taco and comes with a medium fountain drink.

In addition, starting Thursday customers who purchase the Big Box will be able to enter to win a Sony PlayStationVR, before it is available in stores. This is the fourth time that Taco Bell has teamed with the tech company for a PlayStation-themed giveaway.

The prize bundle includes a PlayStationVR headset, a PlayStation camera, two PlayStation motion controllers and a $40 PlayStation Store credit.

"Taco Bell is a brand that lives at the intersection of food and culture, and that is why we're particularly excited to be giving people the chance to be among the first to access the hottest tech this season with PlayStationVR — along with our limited edition spicy Quesarito $5 box. It's two exclusives brought together," Marisa Thalberg, chief marketing officer at Taco Bell, said in a statement.

Customers must text their entry code, which is printed on the box, for a chance to win. A winner will be selected every 15 minutes starting Sept. 15 and running through Oct. 19.
