Taco Bell's Meets Doritos

Everyone loves Taco Bell and Doritos. Imagine combining the two for a tastier meal or snack. Well, that's exactly what Taco Bell has done. The result is an interesting blend of fresh veggies mixed with that spicy flavor we all know so well.

This was the subject of an article in yesterday's New York Times Dining section by William Grimes. He decided to try the newest concoction by one of America's leading fast food chains. His findings? So so. The shell may be very good but the fillings are just basic fast food stuffings. The tomatoes are not good while the sour cream was dismal.At least the beef was flavorful as it often is with any Taco Bell product along with the shredded cheddar which was pronounced sharp. Maybe if would be better with a chicken version.A cool ranch version is in the works

As with any Taco Bell product, the Doritos flavored taco is low in calorie (as well a sin price .it;s a cheap $1.49 .Despite all the different ingredients in it it still only 170 calories. This is much less than its' in house competitor, the Doritos Loco supreme, a weighteir version of it. It has 200 calories. Still compared to what other fast food chains are giving out, Taco Bell is still the healthiest. There's not that much grease, fat or carbs to deal with. Also the flavor is a lot betterand dosn''t have an aftertaste.The doritis spicigns will amp up the food a bit and probably garner more fans

There's nothing like the spice of a Doritos and the tastiness of a taco. Taco Bell has managed to combine the two into a tasty treat for the'sa  fine blend of a popular snack food and a well loved fast food.
