This one takes a little more doing but the journey is worth it. Order a breakfast burrito with the breakfast meat of your choosing, plus a side order of hash browns. Scrape the burrito innards into their new chicken-y home, and then tear your hash browns into bite-sized pieces and play them on top. Hot sauce is optional, but encouraged. It's the most protein-packed breakfast taco you've ever experienced.
El Pollo Loco
On the simpler side, we have El Pollo Loco. Take the chicken. Take the Doritos Locos taco. Put them together.
Yes, the Doritos shell hangs over the edge just a bit, but the texture and flavor interplay between the fried chicken and the cheesy-crunchy Doritos means you won't have time to be concerned over such minor details.
So don't let yourself be hemmed in by Taco Bell's rigid framework for what belongs on a Naked Chicken Chalupa. Get out there, look like a weirdo for ordering one plain, and demand more!
