The Unsung Hero Who Brought Us Doritos Locos Tacos Has Died
You may not know the name Todd Mills, but he was and forever will be a great American hero. The 41-year-old Arkansas resident passed away last week after a battle with brain cancer, but without him, Americans would have never known the deliciousness that is a taco cradled in a shell made of Doritos. In 2009, Mills had a brainstorm: Tacos with shells made out of Doritos. Even though he was just an average citizen, he pitched the idea to Frito-Lay … and was rebuffed. “Thanks, but no thanks,” his wife Ginger Mills told USA Today.

Thomas Keller came by the F&W Test Kitchen today to whip up some incredible pizza waffles. The best part? They were completely gluten-free thanks to Cup4Cup, a gluten-free flour created by French Laundry chef Lena Kwak (pictured).
