Taco Bell Dorito Taco

26 replies • Last post

Today I had a semi-religious experience at Taco Bell. I was fortunate enough to try one of their new Dorito Loco Tacos. For those who don't know, the Dorito Loco Taco is a basic Taco Bell hard shell taco with one big twist: the shell is a big Dorito!

Oh my lord, this taco was soooo good! I am here to gloat. Have any of you had one? What do you think?

Can't say I have. Man the Mexican food in the States is so good compared to here. You're making me hungry!

Also I'm reminded of my favourite "your mum" insult/jokes from when I was a kid...

Your mum's so small she can hang glide on a dorito. Zing!

btw did you see a panda anywhere near the loco taco?

Mexican food is so very different here from the real Mexico, but I do love a good chimichanga with a nice strawberry margarita (slushy). I make a really good chicken quesadilla, too, which I will have to add to the recipe thread.

I am not big on doritos OR Taco Bell. I have kind of lost my taste for fast food, although I used to LOVE Taco John's meat and potato burritos. Tongue

Mexican food American style is my favorite. I saw an advertisement for the taco but was confused as to what it is. There is an ingredient in Doritos that doesn't agree with me, but it does sound yummy. Strawberry margarita sounds so refreshing.....too bad I don't drink alcohol.

You can always drink a virgin margarita. I used to make those for my boys, on hot summer days. I would mix them up in the blender to serve with my homemade quesadillas or chimichangas. Smile

I agree that that authentic Mexican food is delicious! By the way, I don't consider Taco Bell to be authentic, but it is pretty dang good.

At my last job I used to work with many first and second generation immigrants from Mexico. They would bring in authentic Mexican food that they made at home and it is heads and shoulders above any "Tex Mex" that you find at a fake restaurant.

Among my favorites? Habenero salsa, and homemade tacos stuffed with barbicola (shredded cow's tongue!). It is soooo good!

Ewww....shredded cows tongue? I think I will pass on that one!

I used to work for Migrant Head Start (temp position) and the families would bring in homemade tamales. They would also sell them. In fact, I had a little girl knock on my door, here at my apartment, the other day and asked if I wanted to buy some tamales. Unfortunately, I had no money. I know they would be authentic. I loved the big brunches in Mexico with the home made tortillas hot off the griddles. YUM! You are making me hungry with this thread, lol!

Homemade tamales= yum!

The barbicola is actually really good though. I know I am not going to convince anyone of this, but it actually tastes a bit like pulled pork. I recommend it for sure... you wouldn't even know it was tongue until someone told you!

My ex-husband used to love to eat boiled cow tongue. His mom made it for him. I could never stomach the thought of even trying it. I have sliced it before and that was disgusting enough.

That is probably the only way I would ever eat it. If someone did not tell me until after I ate it, lol! I like to think I am adventurous when eating, but I am not. Have you heard of Andrew Zimmer? He used to be on talk radio here in Minneapolis, then he started some show where he goes all over the world eating strange things, lol.

Reminds me of a story my brothers tell. Before I was born my mom made spaghetti with moose meat? (I am not sure how she ended up with that!) and she forced my oldest brother to eat it. He warned her he did not like it, but she told him to eat. Well, you can imagine the rest of the story. It all came back up. He did try to tell her. lol!

Hope, This reminds me of a story of being tricked into eating something. Our neighbor was making spaghetti. I knew they used deer meat in their cooking. She offered some and I asked if it was made with deer meat. Just the though grosses me out. She told me no, that it was regular hamburger. I tried the food and it tasted weird. She later told me it was deer meat that she used. I never trusted that person again.

You must have good taste, 'Slim. I just heard on the radio today that Taco Bell sold 100 MILLION of these tacos in just 10 weeks, their fastest growing product EVER! Unbelievable. Now they are going to come out with choices for the Dorito (cool ranch, etc). Makes me want to break down and try one, lol! I haven't had Mexican Food or Mexican Fast Food in forever. Sounds kind of good for a change (LOVE Chipolte).

Here is the article:

I heard this too yesterday. It is a very good taco, and is my second favorite thing there as it is second to only the Chalupa.

I am just happy that this 100 million Loco Panda (ha) taco sales deal will ensure that they remain on the menu for the foreseeable future.

That is an unbelievable amount of tacos. Does anyone remember when McDonald's use to have the over 1 million served sign?

A word of warning amongst all the cheery Eat chat..

I have waited many months for an opportunity to say this & am kicking myself for only just noticing this thread now...

3 hours after eating in a Taco Bell restaurant in a city in the Caribbean last year I got a nasty dose of cholera... Sick Sick Sick

100% true, my g/f is a doctor but if she hadn't been (and thus okay to treat me at home) I would have faced a few days in hospital.

Its a nasty sickness and what p****d me off big time was that TB were impossible to get hold of here to tell the idiots what had happened.

So although their tacos may taste great (and up until this episode I was a BIG fan), they are by no means perfect.

(Not sure if they are a franchise but even if they are . its no excuse...)

Wow I am delighted to finally get a chance to say this... Angry

That is nasty. I don't think there is anything else I can add.

Haha, Taco Bell is famous for its ability to give people the "Hershey Squirts". I can't say it has happened to me in a while, but then again maybe I have hardened my intestines to the impact of the ground beef.

Or maybe its the fact that I eat the style of food a lot. We usually have authentic Mexican food about once every 2-3 weeks. In fact, I had a chorizo omelet for my anniversary breakfast the other day.

Oh, wow, what an unpleasant experience to say the least. Good thing your GF IS a doctor, and you were at least able suffer at home instead of in a hospital.

I am not a huge Taco Bell fan, but I do love the very occasional Taco John's mean and potato burrito, with no tomatoes and extra potatoes and sour cream, of course, lol. I am sure you will steer clear of either of those fast food joints for a long time, if not forever. Make good Mexican at home from now on.

So sorry!

I never looked at it like that. I guess we in the U.S. could be worse off.
