Dorito Loco Experimento

Abstract: The purpose of this experiment was to try to improve on perfection... no small task.

Procedures: During lunch, 4 tacos were ordered. The Tacos were then compared via the incredibly scientific method of eating them to see if any improvements were made.

CONTROL:            1 plain Dorito Loco Taco Supreme
STEAK:                  1 Dorito Loco Taco Supreme with beef substituted for Steak
NACHO+SOUR:    1 Dorito Loco Taco Supreme with nacho cheese added
NACHO ALONE:   1 Dorito Loco Taco (non-supreme) with nacho cheese added

In the case of comparing the STEAK to the CONTROL, it was found that the steak is quite worse than the ground beef. The flavor of the steak was stronger than the Dorito Loco flavor, thus canceling out the most amazing aspect of the taco.
In the case of comparing both the NACHO+SOUR and the NACHO ALONE to the CONTROL, it was found that in both cases the addition of the nacho cheese was a stark improvement to the CONTROL taco without the nacho cheese.
In the case of comparing the NACHO+SOUR to the NACHO ALONE tacos, the results were less straightforward. The experiment showed that the flavor was better with the NACHO+SOUR, but that the extra goo (scientific term) compromised the integrity of the containment device (read: shell).

In all cases, the experimenter recommends adding Nacho Cheese to the Dorito Loco Taco. However depending on the eating situation, the experimenter would alter his advice on whether or not to go supreme. If dining in at the Taco Bell or if eating in the car but NOT driving, Supreme (NACHO+SOUR) is recommended. If taking home or if eating in the car while driving, the non-supreme (NACHO ALONE) is recommended.

This experiment is awaiting peer review.

  1. This experiment should be reclasified as no longer awaiting peer reivew. The experiment has been replicated under the controlled conditions detailed above and the results have been confirmed.
