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

As we can never have too many Taco Bell threads around here:

Taco Bell Testing Shells Made of Nacho Cheese Doritos?
April 8, 2011 // 8:01 pm // By: Elie Ayrouth.

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 idea of a shell made entirely of Doritos opens the flood gates for various flavors of taco shells, Cooler Ranch anyone?

Earlier today, our friends at GrubGrade surfaced a few more shots of the taco from a Toledo, Ohio location. The main talent in the evidence video posted below claims the taco is “Everything I expected and more,” and several bites and chews later thumbs up an off-screen buddy to acknowledge his approval of the new item.

What do y’all think? Delicious concept? Is this available in your area? If not, would you like it to be? Speak on it in the comments!

I bet it's not as good as crushed nacho cheese Doritos on egg salad.

No reason you couldn't make these at home as individual bite tacos. Take a chip, put a spoonful of taco meat (you can buy TB seasoning) and throw a little cheese on there. I do this with tortilla chips instead of buying hard shells.

You have to consider that most people likely to eat these will be either extremely drunk, stoned or both. Your alternative solution requires far too much control over fine motor skills for the target demographic.

You, of all people, should know that.

Well spelling considerations aside I function quite well when high drunk or both. But I suppose I can't hold everyone else to the high standards that I do myself.

They should use Taco flavored Doritos for taco shells.

This would be complemented perfectly with diarrhea-scented toilet paper to wipe up the diarrhea.

Diarrhea (in some parts of the world) is a delicacy.

Another reason to make em at home. You can buy quality beef and still use Taco Bell seasoning.

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

I tried one of these back in November and honestly it was not very good. Then again I'm not sure what I was expecting from Taco Bell. The taco shell itself had barely any noticeable "Doritos Nacho Cheese" flavor. Plus it was a pretty stale as well.

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

Couldnt someone do this at home by crushing up some Doritos in a bag with a rolling pin and then dipping the taco shells in it? I dont eat Doritos or Taco Bell anymore.

Why didn't the Mexicans think of this first?

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

We make "walking tacos" at home and use nacho cheese doritos as the "shell". It's pretty tasty.
