149.2 Dorritos Taco Bell Not as Good as Regular

We both love Dorritos nacho cheese flavor tortilla chips, which are what Taco Bell's new special taco shells are made of. We tried the new Dorritos Locos tacos yesterday, though, and we both independently said we prefer Taco Bell's regular taco shells! We were surprised.

This reminds me of when Mom and I put chocolate chips in banana bread once. We both love chocolate, and we both love banana bread, so it should have been Heavenly, right? Nope. Chocolate and banana bread don't compliment each other. They compete for your taste buds.

It is the same with these Dorritos taco shells. Taco Bell tacos in the original taco shells are delicious taste combinations. The meat and cheese and lettuce and tomato all combine in flavor with the corn tortilla to bring you a taste masterpiece. Throwing in the Dorritos nacho cheese flavor on top of that is overkill, and it kills the flavor combo of the rest of the meal. All I taste is the Dorritos nacho cheese flavoring. It overpowers everything.

I prefer regular Taco Bell tacos over their Dorritos Locos tacos. Your mileage may vary.

I gained .8 pounds yesterday, but am still within my weight-loss goal of 145 pounds to 149.9 pounds at 149.2 pounds. I walked the dogs two miles yesterday, and did my usual 30 minutes of housework, for exercise. Here is what I ate:

Two Corn Dogs with mustard
1/4 cup peanut M&Ms
Two Dorritos Locos tacos supreme from Taco Bell
1/4 cup peanut M&Ms
El Monterey bean and cheese burrito with salsa
Sliced Gala apple candied with 2 tablespoons peanut butter and 36 dark chocolate chips
Handful of dark chocolate chips


  1. I haven't tried them yet, but I don't think I'd like the Doritos taco shell either, for the same reason you mention. The light corn taste is fine with the taco fillings, but Doritos would be overpowering.

  2. We were really surprised that we didn't like it. We both expected to love it!

  3. I Disagree I love the loco tacos so does my husband. Make sure they have sour cream on! : )
    Btw... Cherise, congratulations on keeping your weight off! If I ate all the things you eat I would turn into a balloon : D ... Even if I exercise is probably because of menopause. Anyways. Please continue posting.

  4. Thanks, Patty. :) They DID have sour cream on them, though! That's why I ordered the supremes, cause they have sour cream.

    I have been pre-menopausal (with the hot flashes) for 13 years, now. My mom was done with all of it by age 51, so I have a year and a half of it to go...
