Dear Taco Bell, This is How It's Done: The Bacon Taco Shell

Down at SXSW this past week, which was pretty well Cool Ranchified with junk-food advertisements, one of the day parties was sponsored by The Bell. They were giving away free Doritos Locos tacos by the crate. Sounds fantastic, right?

The problem, of course, is the Doritos Locos taco shells carry the same flavor as the top flap of a Banker's Box®. There are only so many a person can tolerate sober. And so, Taco Bell, I say you are doing it wrong.

Cruising Reddit's glorious food page this morning illuminates who's doing it very, very right. The above, of course: The Bacon Taco Shell. Can't you just hear the crisp bite through the bacon? Taco Bell 0, Random Person on Reddit 1.

See, the thing is to make the shell, the bacon has to be fried crispier than I prefer.  Love the thought but the execution wouldn't taste good.

The cook that posted that pic said she microwaved overlapping pieces for 3 minutes then took them out and wrapped them over a form of some sort. After a few minutes the bacon hardened. If that's the case it may not be too crispy.

I ONLY drink over priced cocktails. Rimmed with foie gras. Served in sausage glass.

Well, excuse the shit out of me, professor know it all. I've corrected the spelling of arteries. So now you'll be able to get a decent nights sleep.
