Why is there raw hamburger with green chilies on top of cooked hamburger and liquid cheese?
This is all kinds of wrong.

I guess Taco John's was tired of Taco Bell getting all the press for its Tacos made of Doritos. (Or rather, one large Dorito.) So they came up with this.

I'm having very mixed emotions.
IS it cooked? My emotions are not mixed, it looks like something I would not give a much loathed dog.

This is why I always double knot my sneakers. Nothing worse than being launched into the backyard without my shoes on. The dogs poop back there! gulp

Taco John's is not related to Taco Bob's.

That's the kind of mistake that causes a fight.

Having had the experience of eating an entire bag of Flaming Hot's I can honestly say this has the potential to be very painful the next day.

I would probably try one of these if I wasn't in a "no carb" phase right now. "Flamin' Hot" Cheetos are pretty good. I just don't like how they turn your mouth day-glo red.


It's not the day-glo red mouth that bothers/concerns me it's the day-glo red...

My wife and I have both worked at Taco Bell is the past, my insights:

It looks more like they are competing with the tacos that have flaming Fritos in them. Since Taco Bell still only makes those during special seasons even though they outsell other promotional tacos by over 300% AND outsell many of their other tacos it looks like these guys stepped in to try and fill a demand.

P.S. Did you know some Taco Bell places will sell you packages of their tortillas if you ask? it's simply glorious.

I did not know this! surprise

I really don't see why the Doritos taco shell isn't broadly available. (Is it?)


Also, I guess this is part of a larger trend. Subway also has a sandwich that comes with Fritos on it. So here's three different franchises that have now teamed up with Frito-Lay for fast-food alchemy and cross-promotion.

So what's next in this trend? How about Pizza Hut making a Sausage, Green Pepper and Funyun™ pizza?


I don't think that shell is readily available. And oddly enough bot of the places my wife and I worked in desperate towns barely sell any actually. It could have been a regional thing somehow though but a lot of people there didn't even like them.

It is interesting to see lots of places doing this now. I also admit I'd buy that pizza just to try it.

Ooh a "secret menu item"!

I was asked to make these a couple of times and managed to do so pretty close. If you know the ins and outs of what everything is called you'd be amazed at what you can order. I tend to make cashiers stare at me with my glorious custom orders. They used to use me to train newbies on how to do specials just for that reason.

Sadly though some of the "secret menu items" can't even be made anymore as the real ingredients are no longer even being used in a lot of stores, loads of places don't even have chili anymore It's a sad day...

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

I was introduced to the Chili Cheese Burrito last summer, and liked it. It's not in a prominent place on the menu, and some stores don't even list it (I guess those are the ones without the chili). Even though it's smaller (less stuff in it) than the regular Bean Burrito, I find it just as filling -- although WAY messier. You gotta have a stack of napkins handy if you eat more than a couple Chili Cheese Burritos.

I like those. I recommend an antacid and some Pepto both before and after. Also, Charmin wet wipes.

And here I'm asking why I'd want to ruin perfectly good Cheetos™ by shoving them into a burrito.


Cheetos = good

Flamin' Hot Cheetos = pointless carbs. I'd rather drink hot sauce straight up.

That's why the correct answer is Jalapeno Cheeotos

There doesn't seem to be a Taco John's in South Carolina. This is probably a good thing in the long run.

Taco Johns had always been the best local fast food taco/burrito option, until I saw this. Yeah, they've lost credibility.

They're now on the same level as Taco Bell in terms of marketing, but at least they don't rely on a silica-infused meat product.

But Taco Johns has potato oles. No comparison... seasoned potato rounds. They do put them in burritos, and it's glorious.
