I Heart Doritos (Part Deux)

2 Apr

A little over a month ago, Jill from JoggingJeans.com notified me of some great news: Taco Bell was introducing a taco served within a giant Doritos shell! I was happier than a pig in mud. I even blogged about how excited I was here.

This news was enough to make me end my forever long Taco Bell hiatus. I counted down the days until I would get to try such amazingness. However, when March 8th came and the Dorito Taco was introduced, I encountered a major problem: getting someone to go to Taco Bell with me.

No one would go. Not Donnie. Not my friends. Not my co-workers. Not even my Mom! I know what you’re thinking: Why didn’t she just go by herself? The answer to that is easy… I consider eating Taco Bell by yourself to be much like drinking by yourself. If you find yourself doing it alone, then you have a problem.

So for the last month, I’ve been talking about this taco and begging those around me to go try it with me. And for a month, those around me have shut me done, crushing my little heart to broken pieces… much like the crumbs you’d find at the bottom of a Doritos bag.

But finally today a miracle… my co-workers agreed to go to Taco Bell! They realized that this would be the only way to shut me up. When they agreed, I proudly proclaimed, “This is going to be the best day ever!”

At Taco Bell I ordered two Doritos Taco Supremes. I could hardly contain my excitement as we drove to the park, where we would be dining al fresco. Finally I sat down and unwrapped my first taco:

At first it just tasted like a regular Taco Supreme from Taco Bell. But with each new bite, the Nacho cheesy flavor got stronger and my mouth got happier and happier. Hooray!

Afterwards I licked the nacho cheesiness from my fingers, enjoying the moment as I knew I would not be returning to Taco Bell anytime soon. It was good once, but their meat still makes me nervous… even if they did stop using ‘pink slime‘ in their beef.

Have you tried the Taco Bell Doritos Taco? What did you think? 

I’ll leave you with the video my co-worker shared with me after I started linking my fingers.

I Heart Doritos

28 Feb

In a recent post, I admitted my love for slipping Doritos into my food.

Here are some of my favorite uses for my beloved Doritos:

  • Doritos make a delicious salad topper. Must use ranch or bleu cheese dressing.
  • Out of cheese? That’s okay, just slip some Doritos into your sandwich. Wait, you already have cheese on your sandwich? That’s okay, add Doritos anyways!
  • Want to spice up that cheap 99-cent frozen dinner chicken alfredo? Just add Doritos!

I think you get the point.

I like the good old original nacho cheese flavored. Sure, the ranch and pizza flavored ones are yummy too, but why try to mess with cheesy tortilla perfection?

As I got older I cleaned up my diet I started to top my salads with (gasp) veggies and stopped purchasing those cheap pasta frozen dinners. And subs are fewer and further between these days. And I purposely avoid the chip aisle at the grocery store. It’s really quite sad.

In reading of my love for Doritos, Jill from JoggingJeans.com shared the most fantastic news with me:

Naturally, I had to Google what this was about. Lo and behold, it’s true! On March 8, 2012 Taco Bell is introducing a taco served within a giant Dorito shell! I haven’t had Taco Bell in over a year,  but I think I might have to break the hiatus for this special occasion. Thanks, Jill, for the best news ever (I’m easy to please). I cannot wait to try this cheesy, deliciously bad for me treat!

With that, I leave you with my most favorite commercial. Having two pugs and a boyfriend that is forever teasing them might have made me biased.
