Paleo Doritos (Locos!)

A cinco fiesta snack for the Frito Lay’s cravers. I’m not too much of a fan of re-creating un-paleo foods as paleo (whole foods are delicious on their own and should be celebrated independently… just an opinion) However, the challenge of paleo-tizing classics such as Doritos is so enticing. I’m sure these will be eaten within 24 hours of the making, but for storage sake: best kept in big airy container (like a gallon ziplock bag).


Twentysomethingandpaleo Doritos: 6 servings (10 chips per serving) @ 190 cal/ea (F 11g; C 7g; P 4g)

1/2 cup almond meal
3 tbsp flax seeds
2 tbsp coconut flour
¼ cup chia seeds
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 egg white
1 ½ tsp chili pepper
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp salt
3 tbsp nutritional yeast

Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix all ingredients in food processor.
Place ball of dough between two sheets of wax paper and roll out to a thin chip-like thickness.
Slowly peel top layer of wax paper off and slice into triangles.
Flip ontop of a cookie tray and peel bottom layer of wax paper off.
Bake 7-10 minutes until crispy and brown.

Just for fun… here’s the real Dorito’s nutritional info:
