REVIEW: Flamin’ Hot Nacho Doritos

Doritos Flamin Hot Nacho

What are Flamin’ Hot Nacho Doritos?

The new Flamin’ Hot Nacho Doritos are when “Nacho Cheese Gets Lit,” as denoted by the back of the pack. But really, it’s Chester the Cheetah lending his creds for Doritos’ latest spicy flavor.

How are they?

They’re spicy, salty nirvana!

They smell like regular nacho flavored Doritos, but when you eat them, they’re seriously LIT. There are two hits of heat; the first hits your throat with some tolerable fire and the second is the afterburn on your taste buds. This compounding of hot is what will get ya.

After a few chips, your nose will definitely be running and your eyes a-waterin’. But, don’t touch your face with your hands because you’ll get the thick Flamin’ Hot residue everywhere. I am amazed that it’s not just blind, overpowering heat. The nacho flavor is still somehow prominent as well.

Is there anything else you need to know?

I don’t think it’s the same Flamin’ Hot seasoning that’s on Cheetos. Even though the red color looks very similar, it’s much spicier. However, it’s still complementary, so I’ve been eating them together like a Flamin’ mix.

These are so fuego that it caught me by surprise and I almost feel the need to defend my spicy tolerance (I can eat spicy foods, I swear!). This new flavor is the hero in Frito-Lay’s new multi-million-dollar Super Bowl ad, so you best believe that it knows this is a winner too! Takis better watch out!

5 thoughts to “REVIEW: Flamin’ Hot Nacho Doritos”

  1. I love flamin’ hot Cheetos and I love Doritos, so I thought these would be my favorite thing ever, but I didn’t love them. They were good, I’d probably get them again, but I prefer Spicier Nacho Doritos.

  2. I could eat Flamin Hot Fritos by the bag, and I love me some spicy Doritos, but these were just a disappointment. They didn’t seem terribly spicy and the flavor just wasn’t as good as the Fritos. As the other poster said, Spicy Nacho is better. If they really wanted to make me happy though, they’d bring back the Jacked Spicy Street Taco ones…

  3. This was my favorite chip in the 90s. Nothing like Doritos for a HS student lunch. However, these are NOTHING like the originals. I can taste the citrus and they are more Taki like. I was disasppointed

  4. I swear I’ve gone to Walmart 3 times this month just to get these chips! These are the real deal!!!
    P.S. There is going to be a 4th!
