Those look....awesome.  Just awesome.  If it weren't for the price of all the specialty spices I'd make up a batch myself.

I like doritos and taco bell.

Doritos locos taste bad.
 
2013-01-03 08:33:03 AM
that site sucks on a phone.

probably as much as the tacos.

Yep. For the very few times I may have an urge for a Locos Taco, it's just easier to pick up a couple at Taco Bell. It's not like they are expensive in the first place.

I just love the description of the author.


Dominique would be a foodie if she had money to pay for food. For now, she gets by just looking at food photography, which results in at least one more starving journalism student every time Instagram breaks down.

She apparently gets paid for re-blogging pictures of food on the internet. While that's a sure enough sign that she is a parasite she also has the temerity to biatch offhand about the FREE service that feeds her content not always working. I'm not really all that upset personally but this is exactly why some people are really disappointed that the world didn't end last month.

You take things really seriously.

Ah, yes, for those cold winter nights when you want explosive diarrhea without having to leave the house.

Or as I stated in my post I'm not really upset but I find it amusing that someone can get paid for re-blogging recipes without ever having tasted them or attempting to make them themselves.

That was a painful post to get to the recipe and the font alone wasn't quite Comic Sans, but ... ugh.

I don't like Taco Bell or Doritios Tacos - but was hoping that there would be some new take on it that would make it more appealing or something that I could consider using for my daughters - I was wrong. Reading the comments, I now realize she's a college student / paid-blogger who is looking for an alternative to Ramen Noodles and PB&J - so it's all in perspective now.

I liked the suggestion from a commenter to put the herbs / spices in the dough, except that the frying might burn them (see Alton Brown's fried chicken recipe for an alternative) so not sure how to do that here.

Now aren't you glad the submitter gave you an article about the real article rather than just the real article?

Just put herbs and spices in the dough :) AB undercoats fried chicken because of the long fry time, which would burn the spices. You fry tortillas very briefly, the spices aren't going to be likely to burn.

You blog sucks and no food tastes "amazing". You were "amazed" by the flavor of junk food? You need to get out more.

while i give her credit for pointing out the thing about people not liking recipes because they can't change one ingredient, it is sad that she has to be sponsored simply in order to afford spices for the stuff she makes. you would really have to go out of your way to find a grocery store to give you free food in exchange for you mentioning them on the internet.

then, she includes the herpderp: if you are dieting, avoid the sour cream and cheese...o'rly? hmm, if i was dieting, i probably not spend my time searching the internet to find unique and innovative ways to make taco bell food at home. (but that's just me, results may vary)
also, her name is jasmin (minus the e, what a beautiful snowflake you must be)

finally: "i brought in my dorito expert, who probably eats doritos every other week" translation: my boyfriend eats junk food, but i biatch about it constantly so he doesn't do it too often

Doritos tacos are better in theory than practice.
 
2013-01-03 09:31:07 AM
Recipe incomplete...forgot the horsemeat.
 
2013-01-03 09:34:11 AM
I'd put my banger recipe in her loco taco.

Don't be silly, horsemeat is expensive.

Doesn't this sort of seem like a homebrewer striving to make Budweiser?
 
2013-01-03 09:44:02 AM
Call me when i can get a soft shell version at taco bell

We all do everyday, it's called piss.

Why the fark are we linking to an article about a crappy article about a crappy food item? Can we not direct link someone web page? Is there a paid thing about foodbeast? Because that was a shiat website. At least the source was a decet site.
 
2013-01-03 10:26:02 AM
There are a lot of much simpler ways to give yourself the shiats.

I don't think the Doritos tacos are all that bad, but I'm patiently waiting for Cool Ranch Locos tacos--I've never really liked nacho Doritos.
My homemade solution is to just add a layer of crushed-up Cool Ranch Doritos when I make tacos.

Love all the copyright crap this chick tries to post. "You are not allowed to post my recipes...you must link to my site."

No. Your recipe - i.e., your list of ingredients - is not copyrightable and I can post it wherever the hell I want and tell people how to make tacos, as long as I don't copy your prose. Only your lame description, pictures, and step-by-step are copyrightable.

U.S. Copyright Office: "Copyright law does not protect recipes that are mere listings of ingredients. Nor does it protect other mere listings of ingredients such as those found in formulas, compounds, or prescriptions. Copyright protection may, however, extend to substantial literary expression-a description, explanation, or illustration, for example-that accompanies a recipe or formula or to a combination of recipes, as in a cookbook. "

I made it down to the photo of the little piles of spices before giving up. Gee-zus.

I have a food/recipe blog, actually. I will write an introduction for the topic. But that will be a short paragraph, perhaps two short ones. And then some pictorial instruction, but I do assume my readers know how to crack a g-d egg and what one looks like in a bowl.

I hate this newish trend toward endless blathering about personal self-fulfillment and someone's dog and Mr. Darcy, etc., before posting the actual recipe and directions and photos of "what a measuring cup might look like." This one would have been several pages in a book. I am assuming so, that is, since I never got to the bottom of it. That terrible, terrible font.

Wait, other than the Kernel Season's nacho cheddar popcorn seasoning, which of those spices is "specialty"?

Only thing worse is that subby and green-lighter were dumb enough to link to her re-blog rather than the original article.

I have a food dehydrator... that gives me the idea to make some dorito-esque dried seasoning.
 
2013-01-03 03:51:31 PM
I'm kind of amazed it was as complex as she made it to be. Doritos are corn chips which can be reverted back into masa simply by processing them all to hell and adding a bit of water to get it to combine into a masa dough again. Past that and it's child's play.

Problem solved.......by a package of Taco Bell seasoning from grocery store (like 85cents), buy meat (I've made it with beef and chicken) buy Doritos and any other toppings you need/want, cook and then......just eat like nachos. Also goes well with other types of chips (different flavored Doritos, Chili Cheese Fritos, etc...)
