A Chip Off the Ol’ Bell

It’s a crunchy combination I couldn’t resist… even after agonizing over the name.

I’ve always called one chip a Dorito. So, I feel like this should be known as the taco with a Dorito shell. But no, it’s a taco with a DoritoS shell. Then they call it a DoritoS LocoS Taco. It reminds me of when people say, “Let’s go to Barnes and Nobles.”

Doritos may have 4,746.8 ingredients, but they’re still tasty. I’ve had the flat ones, the 3-D version and I’ve melted Swiss cheese over them, an idea from my aunt.

I appreciate all, OK- most, of the flavors, from Cool Ranch to Third-Degree Burn, but there’s just something about the classic Nacho Cheese… that’s my favorite. Who doesn’t love having fingers that look as if they were used to strangle an Oompa Loompa?!

Truth be told, I didn’t have much faith in this creation. I didn’t see how they could keep the shell in tact. I thought it would be soggy, too.

To my surprise, it was dry and there was no breakage. Maybe it was the little sleeve that not even the sour cream slathered Taco Supreme gets, but who knows. Who cares?

Overall, I’d say this was bueno – that’s “good” en espanol.

I could kinda taste the cheesy Doritos flavor I was hoping for, but for the most part, it was lost in the mouthful of typical taco flavors. There’s not much more to say. I’m glad I tried it, but I won’t miss it when it’s gone.

True to form, though, my hands looked like I’d just shut down Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory in a fit of rage.

Give me a Nachos Bell Grande made with Doritos and we’ll talk. Until then, I’ll stick with the Fresco menu and the occasional gut-building Gordita.

I just hope this gimmick doesn’t give McDonald’s or Sonic any ideas… like building a burger between two Fudge Rounds or nesting a hotdog in a Twinkie.


Tip: Always keep two jars of salsa in your pantry/cabinets. Red is great for a healthy salad dressing… Red or green salsa is great in the slow cooker with boneless pork chops, boneless chicken breasts, or a pork roast. Cook the meat and a whole jar of either one all day on low, then shred. Instant tacos or burrito filling.
