REVIEW: Cheetos Crunchy Salsa Con Queso

Cheetos Crunchy Salsa Con Queso

Cheetos Crunchy Salsa Con Queso es la mejor variedad de Cheetos!

Yes, I really do think Cheetos Crunchy Salsa Con Queso is the best variety of Cheetos I’ve ever had, and you should go buy some.

Now, I could just end the review right here, drop my wireless keyboard on the floor, and walk away with two Cheetos dust-covered fists in the air, but I have to elaborate because as I learned in high school debate, I can’t win an argument by only yelling, “I’m right, you’re wrong. So suck it!”

For those of you who didn’t take Spanish at any education level or don’t watch Dora the Explorer, “queso” is Spanish for “cheese,” “con” is Spanish for “with,” and “salsa” is Spanish for “salsa.”

If you’re not familiar with the different varieties of Cheetos, regular Cheetos Crunchy has a radioactive orange cheesy coating, while Cheetos Crunchy Flamin’ Hot has an evil red cheesy and spicy coating which makes the snack look as if the Devil used them as cotton swabs to clean his ears.

If you look at the closeup photo below, you’ll see these Cheetos Crunchy Salsa Con Queso look like they have a level of seasoning somewhere between the two. There’s some evil red flavoring, but it’s mostly harmless orange flavoring. Because of the dark red seasoning on these Cheetos, I thought they would be somewhat spicy, but they’re not. There’s a slight chile pepper heat to them, but if you hate the spicy, Cheetos Crunchy Salsa Con Queso plays nicely. (I’m sorry, that last sentence sounded better in my head.) At first, I was disappointed about its lack of spiciness, but the more I ate; the more I realized the heat would’ve overwhelmed the wonderful flavor of this crunchy snack.

Cheetos Crunchy Salsa Con Queso Closeup

I’ve never tasted salsa con queso, nor have I tasted the messy result of me with an open bottle of salsa in my hand tripping into someone else carrying a bowl of melted Velveeta who also tripped, leading to a “you’ve got salsa in my Velveeta and you’ve got Velveeta in my salsa” conversation, but if it tastes anything like these Cheetos Crunchy snacks, I’m going to have to clog my arteries by experiencing some real salsa con queso.

Cheetos Crunchy Salsa Con Queso’s flavor has a bit of everything Chester Cheetah is throwing into the bowl of low viscosity cheese on the packaging — tomatoes, chile peppers, and limes. Those three flavors are equally balanced and back up the cheesy flavor perfectly. They’re so good that they’re, by far, my favorite Cheetos variety, and I think, since Taco Bell and Frito-Lay have already put Fritos in a burrito and used Doritos as a taco shell, I’d like to see these Cheetos stuffed into a Gordita or Chalupa.

On the back of the bag it says, “Salsa Con Queso snacks, a flavor that will leave your taste buds begging for more,” and I have to agree with that statement. Even before I finished the first bag, I bought another. As a matter of fact, I’m eating that second bag right now as I type with just my right hand.

Oh dear, these Cheetos Crunchy Salsa Con Queso are so addictive that they’re forcing me to use my computer with only one hand. It’s as if I’m an internet porn addict.

Please take this bag away from me!

  1. Wait… You’ve never had queso con salsa. I find that hard to believe. It’s everywhere. You’ve never been to a Tex-Mex joint and had any.

      1. Dude, that’s just weird.

        I’mma give you the gift of awesome.

        Bake up a nice big batch of waffle fries. Pour about half a jar of Tostito’s salsa con queso in a bowl and microwave it for a minute or so. Pour it on the fries. Dump some chopped scallions on top. Put some gobs of sour cream here and there. Frank’s Red Hot optional but delicious.

        It’s not exactly the same as Friendly’s old Spicy Spuds, but it’s pretty close.

  2. These Cheetos taste just like the Jalapeno Cheddar Doritos 3D’s. Remember those? I loved them. I ate them religiously when I was 16. These Cheetos are awesome!!! Takes me back to the late 90’s. The texture is different but the taste is exact.

  3. Never mix internet porn with Cheetos. You have heard of Cheeto fingers right? If these are as good as Jalapeno Cheetos then I will be impressed.

  4. Picked up a bag of these recently. Have to agree, one of the best Cheetos flavors I’ve had.

  5. Yes, I love the Salsa con Queso Cheetos too! I’m eating some right now (really). But I do love the Jalapeno Cheddar Cheetos even better!! They are awesome!

  6. the most delicous cheetos EVER! they taste somewhat like the variety of salsa con quesso cheeto snacks they sell in Mexico. Now if only I could find where to purchase these again my life would be complete lol

  7. Just tried Salsa con Queso Cheetos snacks today … gotta be my new favorite. When I bought them, I was hoping they would not be too spicy for me & I got my wish! Just the right amount of spicy that does not burn my mouth, or prevent me from enjoying all of the other flavors of this snack. The Salsa con Queso Cheetos recipe is definitely a ‘home-run’.

  8. Where can I purchase con queso Cheetos?
    I live in St.Paul Minnesota.. I was in south Minneapolis at a BP gas station 3 months ago. Now just gone.. I didnt even get to finish the bag.
    My teen daughter snatched bag and are them all.
    They were one of the best Cheetos I’ve tried next to jalapeno. Please help
