Flamin' Hot Cheetos Recipes

35 Creative Ways to Take Your Love of Flamin' Hot Cheetos to the Next Level

I'm a huge fan of Flamin' Hot Cheetos. During college, there was a full bag in the pantry and an "emergency stash" in my bedside table at all times; I'm being totally serious when I say that Hot Cheetos helped me graduate! Even today, I consider myself a Cheetos connoisseur. It's shocking that I'm writing this article without the damning evidence of Flamin' Hot Cheetos consumption — red fingertips — staining my laptop's keyboard.

In search of recipes that incorporated my favorite snack, I stumbled into the realm of truly diehard Cheetos fandom. While I spent years naively relishing the taste of Flamin' Hots in an unadulterated state, wiser folks have added Cheetos into everything from breakfast to dessert. Trust me when I say these 35 unique ways are just the tip of the iceberg.
