Toledo/Columbus, Ohio area.

I have a friend that lives in Toledo and has been taunting me (for damn near a year) on Facebook about having them.

Yeah, I meant to say the drive-thru was empty. Oh well.


I had a couple with lunch, and if someone enjoys Taco Bell, I have hard time believing they wouldn't enjoy this. It wasn't as salty as I feared it would be, and the Dorito-shell is certainly an improvement over their normal taco shell.

Re: Taco Bell to make a taco with a nacho cheese Doritos shell?

I agree. It was great. I had three at lunch and I'm still hungry! I might have to sneak out to get some more before the day is out.

I just happen to have recently started a Snack Food blog called Snack Food Freak, and I posted an article about these on there, check it out!

Of course I'd be recovering from stomach flu the week these come out. I am going to destroy 1/2 a dozen of these when I'm up to it.

Also a big boo to the price. $1.30 for a single taco.

My roommate was eating one of these today. Looked nasty, but then again so does almost everything from Taco Bell.

I don't know why you would say it looked nasty.

It looked like a simple taco to me. Meat, lettuce, tomato and cheese. If deluxe also sour cream. Didn't look any different than any other taco I have ever seen except for the Dorito color which made it more delicious. Lots of cheese flavor.

Re: Taco Bell to make a taco with a nacho cheese Doritos shell?

I had a few tacos, and also requested the shell inside of a cheesy gordita crunch. It was really good, however, it isn't as thick or as cheesy as a Dorito chip, but the flavor is there. It's closer to a Dorito than those 3D Doritos from 1999 though, that's for sure.

I might have to try these soon. Feeling under the weather today but I can hope I feel better tomorrow.

If getting a Doritos Taco wasn't enough to get your sick ass out of bed...why, I just don't know, sir!

Tried one. Shell was stale (or seemed to be). Overall taste of the taco was bland. Wouldn't not buy again.

Re: Taco Bell to make a taco with a nacho cheese Doritos shell?

Tried a few tonight. They were ok, but not sure if it's worth the extra 30 cents per taco. Might be something that I get every now and again, but it's certainly not going to replace their regular tacos

Dammit! Typo.
Would NOT buy again.

But it gave me an idea; make a layered dip (ground beef, beans, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, etc.) and use actual Doritos (or spicy/Tapatio Doritos) to dip. Would be way better and cheaper overall.

Or basically a Nachos bellgrande with doritos instead of their chips

Re: Taco Bell to make a taco with a nacho cheese Doritos shell?

I wonder if the shell is merely "dusted" with Doritos seasonings, rather than an actual Doritos shell.

I didn't know tomatoes came on the standard tacos there. I thought that the tomatoes and sour cream was why you paid the extra 30 cents or whatever for a supreme taco.

A friend of mine tried one today and said the same thing. Apparently the shell wasn't very good.

I'm not as excited for this as I was but I really hope they didn't get rid of the beefy crunch burrito (again) for this. One thing I wish they would have done is instead of nacho cheese Doritos flavoring that the shell captured the texture/gritty cheesiness of an actual chip. Sure it'd be a little messy but I bet it would taste better.

Tried one today. It was pretty good, but small and overpriced ($1.29+tax). The Doritos shell was fresh and crunchy, but overall it seemed less seasoned than I expected.

I'd much rather go down the street and get 3 (bigger and better) tacos for 99 cents at Del Taco on Tuesdays. Let's see, that's < 25% the cost of Taco Bell, the choice is obvious.

Not to pick on zyzzle, but why do people brag that they are saving $0.30 by eating even dirt-cheaper crap food?

I'd pay an extra 50 cents or so for this.

I tried one of the new tacos last night. Enjoyed it about as much as I expected. Nice upgrade over the regular tacos, but my cheap ass won't make them a regular thing.
