E's Recipes- Dorito's Locos Tacos

E has another major interest (as we've mentioned in the new layout post)- cooking. He wants to share some of his recipes.

E's loco's taco's:

E loves Taco Bell's Doritos Locos Tacos. When we found nacho cheese taco shells at Wal-Mart the other day we just knew we had to make some.


1- Cut up peppers and onions and put in cooking pan.
2- Cook on medium heat (with your choice of oil) until soft and onions are translucent.
3- Add your choice of meat and cook until done, then drain fat.
4- Add taco seasoning and 2/3 a cup of water and cook until water is evaporated.

How to build E's Locos Tacos:
1- Lay the meat flat on the bottom of the taco shell.
2- Sprinkle on a pinch of cheese and make sure it gets everywhere- use more pinches if needed.
3- Get two to three leaves of lettuce and place on top.

That's it! Eat

Of course you can add some additions (mom usually does- avocado, cilantro, tomato,sour cream and salsa), but E is a traditionalist and wanted to make it exactly like Taco Bell. They were pretty good. So good, in fact, that we neglected to get pictures in favor of stuffing our faces.
