Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Doritos | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

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

  42. 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.
