Chips on the side have nothing on this fast-food creation.
Mexican chain restaurant Taco Bell is reportedly testing the Doritos Locos Tacos, a taco shell made entirely of nacho cheese Doritos.
According to several reports, it appears that Taco Bell has begun testing Doritos Locos Tacos, a new menu item that places the familiar Taco Bell ingredients into a shell made entirely of Nacho Cheese Doritos. A YouTube video dated back to July 14 of 2010 reveals that this product isn’t necessarily new, but seems to be still going through test markets for proper research.
No indication has been made that this will be a nationally available menu item, but the idea behind the proves to be an interesting one for fans of both Doritos and Taco Bell.
The buzz surrounding the cheesy creation stems from the discovery of a July video making the viral rounds across the Web. In the footage, the willing taste tester exclaims that the taco is “everything I expected and more.”“Much has been made of extreme food recently, what with KFC’s Double Down and Denny’s new bacon holocaust rippling through the Internet,” Stephen Reader wrote for Death and Taxes. “Taco Bell, by contrast, has been crazy forever. In fact, Doritos Locos Tacos represent a relatively tame outing for the faux-Mexican chain.”
The idea of a shell made entirely of Doritos opens the flood gates for various flavors of taco shells, Cooler Ranch anyone?
