Once upon a time, some genius at Taco Bell decided to make a taco with a shell made of cheesy Doritos, and they named it the Doritos Locos Taco, and all was well. Now, it looks like Taco Bell is taking that blessed creation and taking it up like 30 notches to create Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Tacos.

We first caught wind of this last week when Chew Boom reported that a customer had offered a Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Taco instead of a traditional Locos Taco (pictured above!) during the chain’s free taco promotion. Though things have been pretty quiet since, Taco Bell confirmed to Foodbeast today that this taco is indeed real. We followed up and, great news, they confirmed the same to us!

This isn’t the first time Taco Bell has riffed on Doritos flavors, previously releasing Chicken Cool Ranch and Fiery Doritos Locos Tacos a few years back. But it’s safe to safe Flamin’ Hot is one menu item that’s been hotly anticipated (hah!), with fans clamoring for it ever since Flamin’ Hot Doritos were released in 2019.

The bad news is, we don’t know like, anything about this creation just yet. From the looks of it, the taco will consist of similar ingredients to its non-Flamin’ Hot counterpart (taco meat, cheese, lettuce). Foodbeast heard rumblings that it could be slated for a nationwide release on April 16, but Taco Bell could not confirm a release date.

We’ll be sure to update this post when and if we hear more. For now, keep an eye out at your local drive-thru and I guess we’ll just have to keep dreaming of what this delicious creation could taste like. Personally, I’ll be picking up a bag of Flamin’ Hot Doritos on my grocery run this week for taco night. Close enough!
