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).

  • 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 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?

  • In the early days of Disneyland, a restaurant named Casa de Fritos invented Doritos by repurposing stale tortillas they bought from a local vendor. The chips proved to be so popular they were eventually rolled out nationally by Frito-Lay in 1966.

  • Here's a thought: knit the dough -> make tortillas -> cut them up -> dehydrate the triangles -> fry them -> coat them.
