The taco is basically Taco Bell's regular or Supreme Taco but with a specially-made Nacho Cheese Doritos shell.
The regular version (with seasoned ground beef, lettuce, and cheese) will carry a suggested price of $1.29 while the Supreme (which adds tomatoes and sour cream to the mix) will go for $1.69 when it arrives (prices may vary).
Additionally, the Doritos Loco Taco Supreme will be available in a $5 Buck Box along with a Crunchwrap Supreme, Crunchy Taco, and medium drink.
Like Mountain Dew Baja Blast, the Doritos Locos Taco shell is exclusive to Taco Bell (i.e. you won't be able to get these in stores) and the taco itself will be a permanent menu item. There's also a Cool Ranch version coming this fall!
If you can't wait for 12:01am on March 8th, Taco Bell is hosting a Doritos Locos Tacos Hometown Tweet-Off contest where the winner gets a visit from the Taco Bell Truck filled with Doritos Locos Tacos for them and their town to enjoy.
To participate, simply tweet why you deserve a visit from the truck using both #DoritosLocosTacos and #Contest hashtags. The tweet that gets the most retweets at the end of 2/20/12 wins. Additionally, second and third place winners will receive $1000 worth of Taco Bell gift cards and the final top 1,000 tweets with the most retweets will each get a $5 Taco Bell gift card.
