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).

A lot of this video is over exposed. Probably the light thru the windows.
Is she young or old... cause her hair and face are telling different stories.

Here's the problem: You can make about 20 chips in probably 40 minutes? But, I can finish 20 chips in 2 minutes...

You're compressing the dough far too much. Depth guides and use a scraper then rolling pin. When you watch the chips hit the oil in the video the out-gassing is almost immediate and nearly effortless. This should also improve the curling.

I have an irrational attraction to Chris. I don't think he goes for my persuasion but he's such an alpha it drives me bananas.

I wish she’d tried using freshly ground masa instead of masa harina. Doritos have more variation in texture and her chips have a finer texture because the masa harina is so finely ground. Using fresh masa may also be the reason they get baked first. The dough in general would have little bits of corn with more moisture.

They do know that masa actually means dough right?
