Well, make that a janitor turned exec! Richard Montañez worked as a janitor at the Frito-Lay factory in the 1970s, and after he started adding chili powder to his own Cheetos, he pitched the idea to the then-CEO. The CEO loved it, and the rest is history. Montañez is now an executive vice president at PepsiCo North America.
While the actual formula for flamin' hot cheetos is a brand secret, you can make your own version at home that is just as crispy and spicy. Mix cheesy dough and roll it into individual cheetos. Then, bake them until they're browned and toss them with a homemade flamin' hot seasoning mix. If you're short on time, just pour the seasoning mix into a bag of classic cheetos and shake until they're coated.
Variation: If you'd like crunchier, cheetos, deep fry them in a deep pot filled with 2 inches (5.1 cm) of hot vegetable oil. Fry them for about 15 seconds or until they're browned and floating at the top of the oil.
Former Frito-Lay janitor, Richard Montañez came up with the idea for Flamin' Hot Cheetos after taking a batch home with him from work. He was inspired by the Mexican street food called elote, and sprinkled chili powder on them.
Hot Cheetos are a popular topping for elote, the traditional Mexican snack of cooked sweet corn served in a cup, bowl, or on the cob and covered in mayonnaise, cream, chili powder and cheese. Get your elote dipped or topped with Hot Cheetos at one of Elote Spot's three locations.
Koffeteria made headlines when it introduced its giant croissant filled with nacho cheese and encrusted with Hot Cheetos, but that's not where the Cheetos experience ends at this pastry shop. Koffeteria also makes an elote kolache that's filled with roasted corn, sour cream, Cotija cheese, lime, chipotle, and topped with Flamin' Hot Cheeto powder.
Dan: And Sam's right. At Locolotes, in Downtown L.A., you can get the El Diablo Elote covered in Hot Cheeto dust. The Attic, a restaurant in Long Beach, serves Mac and Cheetos, a mac and cheese spiked with Hot Cheetos. The Low-Key Poke Joint, with locations in Riverside and Garden Grove, serves hot cheetos encrusted poke wraps. 041b061a72
