How To Make Homemade Cool Ranch Doritos In 15-Minutes Or Less

Note from Brandon: Cool Ranch Doritos are the best Doritos in existence. This is something we established as irrefutable fact a couple months ago, when we got in a blogger pissing match over Nacho vs. Cool Ranch here at the BroBible office. In honor of National Tortilla Chip, which is a real thing that people will celebrate on Tuesday, February 24, we’ve put together a recipe for making Cool Ranch Doritos yourself from our friends at Spoon University. It’s so easy a stoner could do it… 

What snack food is more sacred than the tortilla chip? There is none. Whether it be salsa, queso, guac or 7 layer dip, everything is made better by the brittle crunch of a corn chip.
