Doritos Locos Quesarito: New Taco Bell Dream Item Forged From Cooking Competition

Meet The Doritos Locos Quesarito Supreme.

Created by celebrity chef Josh Elkin during last week’s milestone Foodbeast Kitchen League Twitch stream, the item turned heads as the contestants were tasked to create a Taco Bell-themed dish.

Kitchen League is Foodbeast’s interactive cooking competition where chefs go head-to-head with one another live on Twitch as the audience orders sabotages to go against them from a menu all in real time. Chefs have an hour to create an innovative dish that adheres to that week’s theme and are judged on Taste, Creativity, Visuals, Swagger (the ability to keep cool during audience sabotages), and use of the Secret Ingredient.

The Doritos Locos Quesarito takes a cheese quesadilla and stuffs with with seasoned beef, rice, chipotle sauce and sour cream. It’s then dredged in crushed Doritos and deep fried before a generous drizzle of fresh queso is applied all over.

We could absolutely see this hitting nationwide Taco Bell locations in the months to come, and we’ll stay tuned.

While Visuals and Swagger went to Josh Elkin during the final deliberation, it wasn’t enough to take the win as competitor Jake McPeck claimed the title with points for Taste, Creativity, and clever use of the Secret Ingredient.

Still, Elkin’s entry into the emblematic cookbook of the Kitchen League is one to take note of, as the item even turned some heads over at Taco Bell corporate with how on-brand it was.

Anyone interested in watching the Foodbeast Kitchen League will want to follow us on Twitch to get the latest updates on upcoming competitions, and head over to our rankings page to see the top chef holding the belt.
