Nacho cheese exists in two states: the melted cheese state and the powdered cheese state*. When it comes to the powdered cheese state, all pale in comparison to Nacho Cheese Doritos, continually perfected by science and consistently beloved by the masses since 1972. Join pastry chef Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to take Nacho Cheese Doritos to the next level and make them gourmet!

*The third state of nacho cheese, cheese sauce, is controversial in the nacho community and for our purposes we are disregarding it. For more reading, see the studies ‘Nachos in Nature’ (1983), ‘Dormant Doritos’ (1992), ‘The Quest for Queso’ (1999), ‘This Powdered Chip’ (2001) and ‘The Health Benefits of Nachos and the Search for Immortality’ (2007).

Do you need to use a more course corn tortilla mix. Have you ever noticed the difference between salsa dipping chips chips and corn tortillas. the chips are obviously more crunchy because the doe was more course the tortillas are made differently they were meant to hold together
Gink Tingle

for the chips: add like half a tsp of baking powder or like whip lard.

I think if you use carbonated water in your dough, then bake them, then put salt on the chips, then fry them to fry the salt into the dough causing it to get really course. then after frying throw the rest of the seasoning over it and then put 'em in the oven. that'd be my guess :)

I would try to divide the spices in two batches. First part is the spices without natural sugers, which is mixed into the chip-dough. The second spice part (sugary spices) is coated after baking, alternative between deep fry and owen.

Why was this important to do...why was this worth wasting 4 days time and all that food? It’s funny how everyone there took that so seriously and it was really just a complete waste of time. And it was gross to see her keep playing in her hair in the kitchen/over food. So gross
