Taco Bell Doritos Taco

I know there are probably a million posts on this one, but I'll add another. I will say right off the bat, that I have been to Taco Bell about five times in my life and think it is borderline inedible at times. I do love Doritos, so I decided to give it a try. I bought the Box, with the regular taco, the burrito and the Doritos Taco. I had the regular one first to get the idea of what their regular taco is like. Not bad, but pretty thin and compared to any and I mean any Mexican place, I'd half to say, not half as good. Then I tried the Doritos Taco. The shell barely contained the Doritos flavor. It was like a mild Doritos chip. I immediately thought "they should have gone with Cool Ranch or Spicy Taco." Then I had the burrito, which was like a damp paper towel filled with re-fried beans and lettuce. All in all, a very lame eating event. As usual, the food was wolfed down and I doubt I'll be back for another few years.

I'm sure there are others that will think this is the next coming of genius, but I'd also bet they are the same people who drive to White Castle drunk at five in the morning. To be honest, I got a burrito in a gas station the other day that was advertised as Steak and Beans. Have to say, it was better, bigger and only slightly more expensive. Only thing it lacked was the shredded lettuce.

  1. I don't drive anywhere drunk, though I like White Castle when sober and in the mood for tiny steamed oniony burgers. And I enjoyed the Doritos Taco -- a nice trashy upgrade from the regular taco shell. I'd definitely get it again.

    1. I had it last night after a late night poker game. It's a big novelty item in my view. MY dorito shell was very flavorful. One thing I did like was the portions that cracked and fell onto the plate. or the portions where you just get more of the shell. It was a bit more tastier that way that just the regular taco shell.

      I don't eat fast food often. I think before that the last time was 6 months ago. So I probably won't have another one for a long time.

      but it wasn't horrible, just not amazing, but it's taco bell what do you expect.
