Cheetos Dust Recipe Hack

Alton Brown Hacks the Recipe For Cheetos Dust and Warns It's "Extremely Habit Forming"

Alton Brown famously said the "best flavor on Earth" is Cheetos. We have to agree, and that's what inspired him to develop a recipe for umami dusted popcorn. Alton's convinced he's "cracked the code" on the cheesy dust found on Cheetos, which he shakes into buttered popcorn. This isn't a highfalutin recipe, either. Cheddar cheese powder and green-can grated parmesan are just a few of the essential ingredients.
