I love Doritos. Especially crunched up in taco salad. Ranae taught me that. (Thanks, Chad). So when Taco Bell introduced their Doritos Loco Taco, I knew I had to try it.
Friday was the day. One Doritos taco and a Nachos Supreme, please.
Appearance: The shell was REALLY orange. I feel like Doritos are mostly yellow-corn chips with lots of fake orange cheese on them. This shell was distinctly orange, plus the cheese on it. It was a little disturbing, I’m not gonna lie. Other than that, it looked like a normal Taco Bell taco. Meat, ice burg lettuce, cheddar cheese, a good squirt of medium sauce…mmm.
Taste: Delish. Seriously. The only thing that could have made it better, IMO, is if the inside of the shell had cheese on it too. It was just on the outside, which I found a little odd. But otherwise, it tasted exactly like I expected it to.
Other: At $1.29, I felt like I was mostly paying for the marketing. They have billboards EVERYWHERE and it can’t have cost that much more to make vs. a regular $.69 taco. I don’t eat at Taco Bell very often, mostly ’cause Chad doesn’t love it like I do, so I doubt I’ll order one again. But it was yummy and made me want to add taco salad to this week’s menu.
