Review: Taco Bell Spicy Chicken Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco

I tell ya, when I ordered Taco Bell's new Spicy Chicken Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco this past Sunday, I felt like I was ordering a mouthful. Could there BE any more syllables or words in Taco Bell's newest creation? (I encourage you to say that in Chandler Bing's voice from "Friends"). It's pretty much the Cool Ranch Doritos shell, stuffed with chicken, a spicy sauce, lettuce and cheese (or for all you overachievers who like to get the supreme version like me, it will come with the addition of tomatoes and reduced-fat sour cream). It looks delicious in the pictures and in person, and it resembled the Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos I've gotten in the past.


However YIKES. Spice alert! If you can only eat Taco Bell mild sauce before the fire alarms start going off in your head, then this taco will most likely be too spicy for you too. I had to get out a half gallon of milk and start chugging after my first two bites of this taco. The spice factor definitely comes from the spicy sauce layered on after the chicken, but I kept trying to figure out if this was the same sauce that Taco Bell puts in their quesadillas, or if this sauce was brand-spanking new and created specifically for this taco.

Everything else about this taco is fantastic minus the sauce. No wonder I'm still so thirsty and dehyderated today, it's the spice!

Takeaways:

  • If you like spicy, by all means order the Spicy Chicken Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco.
  • If you have a similar spice threshold like I do, the order the Spicy Chicken Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco without the spicy sauce. Or honestly, order a different menu item that you may be craving more. My Taco Bell oldie but goodie favorites include the Cheesy Gordita Crunch, the Crispy Potato Soft Taco, or even the traditional Crunchwrap Supreme
