Picture of Doritostix
In this commercial era, what says Superbowl more than Doritos??

You can have this crunchy cheesy recipe done in 30 min! Move over Rachel Ray! haha

For this recipe, I have taken the simple idea of your everyday homemade cheese sticks and taken it to another level. Instead of traditional mozzarella cheese inside, I have replaced it with Pepper-jack cheese for the same creaminess with a slight kick. And the real twist? I have taken out bread crumbs and used Doritos crumbs instead!

When combined together in your mouth, you basically get the sensation of crispy Doritos and creamy cheese with a kick. I guarantee it will be the first item grabbed at your Superbowl party, and will be gone in 10 min or less depending on how many hungry fans are there. ;)

Pair the Doritostix with your favorite salsa. I found it to combine with the flavors incredibly. I chose Tostino's Mild Salsa.

 ALSO NOTE: This is also a good way to use the left over crumbs in the Doritos bag nobody eats!!!

Great idea, I will definitely be trying them. When you say to cut them in half, do you mean lengthwise? The picture showing the cheese being dredged in the flour looks long and skinny but the finished product looks short and fat! Thanks!!

Good question. Cut them in half vertically. Aka in two halves. The first pictures taken were actually taken before we cut them and discovered the need to cut them in half. Honestly, you probably could get away with not cutting them in half, but it has 2 benefits. 1) holds the crumbs better, and 2) MORE FOOD for everyone ;3

I'm going to try dorito crumbs instead of bread crumbs on other things. I'll let you know what worked best.

Best idea ever. Couldn't stop making and eating these at the Super Bowl party tonight. Everyone loved them. They made my night after the Broncos ruined it.
patsheldon (author)  dunning11710 months ago

Aww! Thank you so much, I'm glad they made your night! But i'm pretty sure they wouldn't help Peyton's night! >o< lol

they look so good, and so bad at the same time, I will have to try this for sure lol
patsheldon (author)  AmandaFayefx10 months ago

well I used lower fat pepper-jack cheese, and then use canola oil. I mean it's bad, but the better side of bad. ;) and it was delicous!

honestly, I just put them through the food processor once and left it at me lazy I dont care lol I paired it with salsa as suggested(great call) and some ranch. I was thinking maybe id like to try this recipe with jalapeño chips. yum!
patsheldon (author)  jhartbev10 months ago

I think jalapeño chips would be a very good call! It's obvious I love spicy food! :) Let me know how it turns out if you do!

This looks so yummy, only after I found out Doritos had Romano cheese and blue cheese in it, I got grossed out. I hate blue cheese! :)
patsheldon (author)  kawaiilover10 months ago

Ah yes well the beauty of this is you don't even have to use Doritos. You can use your favorite chip! As long as it's crunchy, it'll work. ;)

I made these on a whim and they turned out great! my company loved them, they didnt even last 15 mins.i used normal mozzarella cheese sticks and a cheddar jack mix.double battering is a must . awesome recipe! thank you for sharing
patsheldon (author)  jhartbev10 months ago

Thanks so much for trying them so quickly! Yeah, they turn out awesome but you really need to get the crumbs as powdery as possible don't ya? But they are crunchy and yummy. Thank you so very much for your support. It is appreciated! =D
