I love Fritos!Jjust three ingredients - corn, oil and salt.
I used to really like the Chili Cheese flavor but going vegan ended that love affair.... altho, to be honest, the chemical crap in those also just turned me off once I started to pay attention to and care about what was in the foods I was eating.
Just look at this ingredient list... MSG! Sugar? Multiple dairy sources? Gross.
If you noticed, there is tomato powder in the original, and even tho I have that in my kitchen, almost no one else will and it isn't always easy to get your hands on that so I decided to make it without the tomato powder to keep it simple. I don't think my version is missing anything without it.
One thing I'd suggest is to make a few spice packets since you'll have everything out anyway... why not make a few baggies of the spice mix and then you just have to dump and shake next time! Plus, you'll be making these a lot.. I promise you.
Chili Cheese Corn Chips
1 10 oz bag of plain Fritos or similar type corn chip (not the tortilla kind)
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp salt (you may want less here depending on how salty the chips are, start with 1/2 tsp and go from there)
1/8 tsp citric acid.
Place all the spices into a small bowl and mix well. Dump the bag of corn chips into a gallon sized baggie and add the spice mixture. Toss the chips with the spices until coated. (don't add any oil, the oil on the chips is enough) Make sure you remove the air in the baggie for storage or they will go stale.. if they even last that long.
