Taco Bell to launch Doritos tacos

Sarah Gardner Feb 20, 2012

And finally today, when the chips are down, Taco Bell decided to go for Doritos.

The fast food chain’s been in a slump lately thanks to a recent lawsuit over the quality of the beef in its famous tacos. So Taco Bell’s going to go for a taco “make-over” of sorts. It’s a new line of tacos, and the shells are made out of Doritos. Yep, those chips that turn your fingers orange. But somebody at Taco Bell’s thinking ahead — the tacos will come in a neat little cardboard holder so you can chow down and keep your fingers clean.
