Easy Homemade Doritos

Everyone’s favorite nacho-cheese chips get an ingredient makeover with this easy Homemade Dorito Recipe!

Homemade Doritos

We see these nacho cheese chips at nearly every party and they’re gone from the table in lightning speed because, well, everyone loves them. What many of us don’t love is the ingredient list -many of which my daughter is allergic to.

Does that mean we don’t eat chips at all? Of course not, we eat other varieties but that doesn’t stop her from asking for these.

This homemade Dorito recipe is just as yummy as the other guys but made with clean ingredients. They are perfect to dip into cheese dip or salsa.

You could say I have a thing for taking those kid-favorite foods like pop tarts, Oreos, fruit roll-ups, and turning them into real, and tasty treats!

Recipes like this one show parents everywhere that real food can be fun, easy to make, and something kids actually want to eat! And when you have picky eaters, trying to eat a less processed food diet can be a challenge.

To make these chips, I prefer to use corn tortillas since they turn into that crunchy, crispy texture of Doritos.

These are great to use for packed lunches or as a party appetizer! They’ll be the first snack to go!
