I never knew 7Eleven was so creative!  If only they could make stuff taste good too we’d be in business.  These seemed too perfect to recreate with taco beef.  So I decided to take the concept from Taco Bell and 7Eleven to create this hybrid.

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 1lb Taco Meat - 907 Calories
  • 4oz Ground Up Doritos - 560 Calories
  • ½ Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese - 220 Calories
  • ½ Cup Mozzarella Cheese - 160 Calories
  • 1 Scrambled Egg (for egg wash)
  • ½ Cup Flour (for breading)
Ideal Toppings
  • Salsa
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Guacamole
Instructions
  1. Brown meat in a pan and add in taco seasoning. Follow directions provided on taco seasoning packet. If you want to make your own taco seasoning I have an awesome heLLthy version on my page Here.
  2. Once the meat is browned mix in ½ Cup Shredded & ½ Cup Mozzarella Cheese.
  3. Once the mixture has cooled, form a ball about the size of a golf ball and roll it into flour. Then press it out into a shape of a triangle on a sheet of wax or parchment paper.
  4. Repeat this step. You should be able to make about 12.
  5. Freeze for 1 hour.
  6. While the triangles are in the freezer, using a food processor grind up Doritos chips until extra fine. It will make it easier to crumble them in your hands before placing into the food processor.
  7. Take frozen triangles out of freezer and re dip these into flour then into an egg wash and then into your crushed Doritos.
  8. Deep fry at 365°F [185°C] for 2-3 minutes.
  9. Best served with the optional toppings listed above. These are basically a taco without the lettuce, tomato, sour cream, etc.
