The Doritos Locos taco is bullshit.
I had this at Taco Bell about a month ago -- just noticed I took a picture of it tonight -- and it kind of sucked. As a Doritos connoisseur I was excited. I used to make spoon tacos (think taco salad) with crushed up Doritos as the base, and they were delicious. This Taco Bell bastardization does not live up to the hype.
The trouble with this taco is that it is essentially just Dorito dust sprayed onto a standard Taco Bell shell. Now, don't get me wrong: Dorito dust is delicious. If they sold it apart from the chips I would certainly eat it by the handful. (My heart just told me to go fuck myself after typing that.) But what makes a Doritos brand nacho chip a Doritos brand nacho chip is the combination of the dust and the chip. This cannot be emphasized enough.
Basically the texture was all messed up, and that was off-putting. (I know, I know, Taco Bell as a whole is off-putting.) Something that should have made me something like this just left me disappointed.
