Fast Food Friday: Taco Bell Fiery Doritos Locos Taco
This week, I have chosen to review the Fiery Doritos Locos Taco from Taco Bell. This one was a toughy for me. While I liked the idea of mixing Doritos and Tacos, the flavors were confusing to me. The Nacho Cheese one came first and I laughed on first bite. Ranch followed and just made much more sense as a Supreme taco with the sour cream adding to the ranch flavor profile. This new Fiery is probably my favorite of the three. I was in the camp of “Taco Bell using Doritos to sell tacos” as a gimmick, but I really like this one. They appear to have used the Volcano Taco shell for this implementation and it was a good choice. The heat comes through nicely, and the lime flavor was a little more prominent than I expected. It seems like the “flavor powder” on the outside was only lime and little else, while the shell itself had the heat. I got it as a supreme so there was sour cream and tomatoes on it as well. The sour cream mellowed the heat just a tiny bit and made the taco more enjoyable.
