Taco Bell has stumbled backwards into an amazing business, with the Doritos Locos Taco (and its newly-bred Cool Ranch variation, alongside another upcoming, flamed-fueld flavor) being both a boon to their bottom line and the economy of America as a whole. It was (conceptually) a simple change; make a taco shell out of a Dorito chip, or coat a taco shell in the infamous Doritos dust.
But why stop there?
Food Beast is reporting that Taco Bell in Southern California is testing a Waffle Taco. Naturally, this will not be a daytime, ground-beef-and-lettuce taco, but it is a sausage patty and egg (and syrup, at your discretion) breakfast beast that would make early-morning Taco Bell fans run to their borders with 89 cents in hand.
Ingenuity will always reign with the home craftsman, though. DudeFoods has created the Bacon Weave Taco, making a shell entirely out of everyone’s favorite pork variety. His rough instructions give a good idea where to start on making one of your own, but he suggest filling it with “seasoned ground beef, sour cream, lettuce, tomato and shredded cheese.”
We know where your mind has ventured, and we’ve thought about it as well. Combining all these forces of tacos into one delicious mega taco would be the goal, and end point, of all humanity. Where can you go after a bacon/waffle/Dorito triple-shelled taco with sausage, eggs, beef, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and maple syrup?
Taco Bell struck it big with their first variation, and are going for more. Have you considered trying something outlandish to spur sales at your restaurant?
