Fried Tortilla Chip Tacos

The Deep Fried Doritos Locos Taco Takes Taco Bell to New Heights

— June 6, 2013 — Unique
Here's hoping the Deep Fried Doritos Locos Taco doesn't break the Internet. I say this because the taco has everything Internet foodies are crazy about. It's fried in beer batter, has bacon and is a Doritos Locos Taco! This calorie-crammed creation was made by Nick of the blog DudeFoods.

Nick had already made Beer and Bacon Battered Deep Fried Doritos, so the Deep Fried Doritos Locos Taco was more or less a logical next step. What's wonderful about this fried taco is that it doesn't sound too hard to make. The ingredients, appliances and skills needed to whip up your own fried bacon taco aren't out of the ordinary. What's next for Nick? Well, he said that he may weave bacon around the shell of a Doritos Locos Taco. The Internet waits with bated breath.
