Yes, they still make Taco Flavored Doritos. However, during 2020 when the pandemic was releasing its havoc, Frito-Lay, the manufacturer, briefly discontinued the chips. Thankfully, they are now back in production.
Frito-Lay confirmed via Twitter in November 2021 that Taco Doritos are currently being manufactured:
Frito-Lay temporarily stopped making Taco Flavored Doritos sometime in 2020 to meet the demand for its products. We assume the company was concentrating on high in-demand products such as Nacho Cheese Doritos as they worked through the challenges of Covid. Keep in mind that Frito-Lay also makes several other popular snack foods like Lay’s, Cheetos, Fritos, Sun Chips, Cracker Jack, and more. These brands certainly factored into the overall product demands.
Here is a Twitter post from Frito-Lay dated April 2020 stating that they have simplified production and paused making Doritos Taco:
As late as October 2020, Frito-Lay was still not making Taco Flavored Doritos:
That all changed around November/December 2020 when Frito Lay brought back Taco Doritos:
Unfortunately for the Canadian market, Doritos Taco Flavored chips have been discontinued in Canada:
Sadly, Doritos Taco has been discontinued in Canada. We’ll certainly pass along your note to our Canadian team for any future consideration of bringing this snack back. Thanks!— Frito-Lay (@Fritolay) January 15, 2021

For example, Kroger had them in stock but they were nowhere to be found at our local Target and Walmart. In other words, it might be a good idea to check with the store to see if they are in stock if you are going to the store solely for Taco Flavored Doritos.
