Taco Bell Is Selling a Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Taco, and We’re Already Placing Our Order

This is hands-down the best Doritos Locos taco EVER!

We’re all looking for fresh ideas for dinner right now—and the idea of fast-food takeout sounds delightful. No prep work. No dishes to wash! We’re definitely on board with this. What’s better is the best new thing in fast-food has officially been released.

Taco Bell just dropped the Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Taco. (And yes, we’re totally drooling.)

What Is the Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Taco?

From what we’ve seen, the brand-new tacos feature a spicy Flamin’ Hot Doritos-inspired taco shell filled with seasoned beef, lettuce, tomato and shredded cheese. This isn’t the first time Taco Bell has showcased Doritos flavors on their menu. Both Cool Ranch and Fiery Doritos Locos Tacos were offered last year, but got cut with this menu change. Based on the comments being shared on social media, it’s safe to say people are pumped for the Flamin’ Hot taco release!

The new taco was spotted earlier this week, with some customers sharing that their local stores began selling Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Tacos as early as Monday, April 13. By the way—they brought back Nacho Fries, too.

When Can You Buy This Spicy Taco?

Taco Bell has confirmed that this is a real menu item with its official, nationwide release on Thursday, April 16. You can get all this goodness for just $1.95 via the drive-through or delivery services, like Postmates and GrubHub. You can also get the taco with the $2 Flamin’ Hot Duo meal, complete with a drink.

The new taco isn’t around for long, so make sure you put that order in ASAP! We don’t know about you, but we know exactly what’s for dinner tonight. By the way, make sure you know how to order from Taco Bell during the COVID-19 outbreak.
