"We're all about creating weird stuff back in the kitchen, and we come up with some cool stuff," our man said. "Some people will just like, crush up a lot of the Doritos Locos shells (both kinds) and make big taco bowls with a bunch of ingredients. Or we'll just keep layering shells, kind of like that old SNL skit."
And sometimes, the employees invent items that sound like they could become bestsellers.
"I think the coolest thing was a riff on the Mexican pizza, but with thicker, softer crust, to make it seem more like an actual pizza," he said. "One of my co-workers got the flatbread and loaded it up with pico, steak, diced tomatoes, lettuce, and some crushed-up Doritos Locos shells. It was awesome. They should make that, for real!"
You can pretty much customize any food at Taco Bell
It's not just the employees who can remix Taco Bell orders. Their POS system gives customers the ability to customize every order with a nearly incalculable number of variations. It's like infinity, with Doritos Locos shells instead of integers.
"Really, our system lets you modify any order, to any degree. If you add a bunch of stuff, we are going to upcharge you, of course, but it's definitely doable," he said.
