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

  • Published on: 22 May 2019
  • 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).

    tortilla press? why not use a pasta roller??? I mean, you know they're using rollers to plane that dough in the factory... and cutting triangles out of a rectangle would be easy peasy.

    Ok I just came to make sure she didn’t leave out the MSG and she didn’t and that makes me really happy

    Sadly im allergic to MSG and was hoping she was gonna make a non-MSG kind because it truly isnt good for people anyways (what is these days!) But it would have been a nice alternative because at the end of the day u wanna get close to making something but give it ur own spin.

    My problem with Nacho Cheese is that it's overpowering now days compared to when I was a kid, like 3 chips and its alot, continue eating and it's too much. Cool Ranch and all the other flavors and the new ones are still good though.

    Thumbs up if you also backtrack the video to see if you could see those weird Criss-Cross patterns Kevin was talking about

    I love that segment of three professional chefs (maybe four with Chris in disgust in the background hahaha) absolutely shredding the dorito taco with criticism... but still deciding they would eat more lmao

    Why not just use a pasta machine to roll out the dough into a rectangle?

    This just influenced me to buy 3 types of doritos. Sweet and Spicy Chili is amazing.

    I know this sounds crazy but has anyone ever tried ‘cold chips’? (As I call them) lol I put my bag of Doritos in the freezer before eating me I’m not crazy 🤪 it’s amazing!! I found this out accidentally when I put my Doritos in the freezer, along with my frozen foods- After grocery shopping. It’s an amazing flavour experience....or maybe I just smoke too much weed 🤔 😂

    There’s bean powder in nacho cheese Doritos. There’s a very very very slight refried bean flavor in nacho cheese Doritos. Read the ingredients. It’s in there and that’s what was missing!
