Don’t throw away the crushed up chips at the bottom of your bag of Doritos; use them in place of breadcrumbs when you’re cooking.

Taco Salad. A great way to dress up lettuce, tomato, beans, and cheese is with tortilla chips, but using salty Nacho Cheese Doritos? Even better!

Fried Chicken. Take pieces of raw chicken, dredge them in flour, dip them into a lightly beaten egg that‘s been mixed with some milk, and then coat them in crushed-up Doritos. Fry the tortilla-chip-breaded chicken in hot oil for the best fried chicken ever.

Macaroni and Cheese. Skip the traditional breadcrumb topping when you’re making homemade mac and cheese and try crushed-up Doritos instead. Even if you’re just making mac and cheese from the box, a sprinkle of Nacho Cheese tortilla chips couldn’t hurt.

Nachos. It seems like a no-brainer, but nachos are waaaay better with Doritos than plain tortilla chips. Layer them with cheese, seasoned ground beef, and beans, and bake them in the oven until the cheese is melted. Then, top the Doritos nachos with lettuce, tomato, onion, jalapeño, sour cream, and guacamole.

Meatballs. Crush up Cool Ranch Doritos and use them in place of breadcrumbs when you’re making meatballs for tons of added flavor.
