The Cheesy Bacon Weave Doritos Locos Taco

The Cheesy Bacon Weave Doritos Locos TacoBack when I made my Bacon Weave Taco a few people suggested that I use the same bacon weave shell in combination with Taco Bell’s Doritos Locos Taco. Well, I took it one step further than that by adding a melted, three cheese blend between the two shells, similar to what Taco Bell does with their Cheesy Gordita Crunch.

I also need to thank Hormel for continually hooking me up with free bacon because between this and all the other bacon related things I’ve been making lately I can’t even imagine how much money they’ve saved me.

Now, aside from making the bacon weave taco shell this seems like it should be a fairly easy process. Just take a Doritos Locos Taco, place it inside the bacon weave shell, sprinkle some cheese between the two and throw it in the microwave right? Actually, it’s not quite that simple….

You see, unless you want all the cheese in your Doritos Locos Taco to melt and your sour cream to get all warm and runny, what you really need to do is completely empty out your Doritos Locos Taco, melt the three cheese blend between the two shells and then refill it. Not really a huge deal, but a little time consuming nonetheless.

When it finally came time to eat my Cheesy Bacon Weave Doritos Locos Taco it was gone in about a minute flat. I think I enjoyed it even more than the Deep Fried Doritos Locos Taco I made a few weeks ago.

Do you know what the hardest part about writing a food blog is? Having to stare at something this delicious knowing that I can’t start eating it until I’ve taken a bunch of photos.

After seeing how well my Cheesy Bacon Weave Doritos Locos Taco turned out there’s clearly only one thing I can do now — make another one, dip it in a beer and bacon batter and deep fry it!

      Luv your idea, I would only change the combo cheeses to Frito-Lay’s jalapeno cheese dip (or mild if you prefer, and can find it)…good room-temp, cold or microwaved. Then only the bacon shell is not made by YUM Brands…yet.

    Is it bad that I had an urge to touch myself while looking at this…

    I wish you had taken pictures of each step because I have no idea what the Doritos product is you mention (I don’t eat chips — if that is what this is) and cannot visualize how you put it together. I was thinking just using a slice of cheese inside the bacon?

      Doritos are chips. Doritos Locos Tacos are tacos that Taco Bell sells where the shell is made from Doritos.
