Homemade Cool Ranch Doritos 
adapted from Classic Snacks from Scratch 

Ingredients: 
Vegetable oil for frying 
1 package 6-inch corn tortillas 
2 tablespoons cheddar cheese powder 
1 tablespoon onion powder 
1 tablespoon garlic powder 
1 tablespoon buttermilk powder 
1 1/2 teaspoons dried chives 
3/4 teaspoon citric acid 
3/4 teaspoon dried lemon peel 
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
1/8 teaspoon Hungarian paprika 

Directions: 
1. Bring 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350 degrees F in an electric fryer. Slice each tortilla into 8 triangles and fry them into crispy. Place them on a sheet lined with paper towels to drain. 

2. Place all the remaining ingredients in a mini food processor and grind until very fine. Then pour the mixture into a ziploc bag. Once the chips have cooled for about 10 minutes toss them in the zip lock bag in small batches and shake until they are just coated with the powder. Remove and enjoy!
