Spicy nugget devotees: Mark your calendar for Monday, February 1. That's when McDonald's is bringing back the fan-favorite menu item for a limited time.

RECOMMENDED: We tried McDonald’s Spicy Chicken McNuggets and they lived up to the hype

In case you were living under a rock last year (hey, it's entirely possible), the fast-food chain first introduced customers to the amped-up morsels back in September. It was the first time McDonald's had ever fussed with the classic McNugget recipe, utilizing a crispier tempura breading that's seasoned with cayenne and chili peppers.

In tandem with the revival, McDonald's is also bringing back its Mighty Hot Sauce, which is packed with crushed red pepper and designed to be paired with the spicy nuggets.

Here's the best part: McDonald's is giving away free six-piece Spicy Chicken McNuggets on DoorDash orders of $20 or more from February 2 to 6. Just use code "SPICY" to get your gratis nuggs. Just like last time, the menu item will only be around for a limited time before it returns to the recipe vault.
