Say hello to your new favorite snack: Fried Cheese Stuffed Doritos – a delightful mix of creamy cheese and crispy Doritos!


  • 1 cup crushed Doritos
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 8 sticks of mozzarella cheese or shredded mozzarella sticks
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Oil for frying


1. Get ready for a coating assembly line! Set up three shallow dishes: one with crushed Doritos, one with flour, and one with breadcrumbs. In another dish, beat the eggs until they’re nice and smooth.

2. Time to give those mozzarella sticks a makeover. First, roll a stick in the flour, shaking off the extra. Next, dip it into the beaten eggs. Finally, roll it around in the crushed Doritos. If you want an extra crunchy bite, double dip by repeating the egg and Doritos step.

3. Place your coated mozzarella sticks on a plate and pop them in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. This will help the coating set and keep the cheese from melting too fast when you fry them up.

4. In a deep fryer or large pan, heat the vegetable oil to a sizzling 375°F (190°C).

5. Carefully drop the mozzarella sticks into the hot oil in small batches. Don’t overcrowd the pan! Fry them until they’re golden brown and crispy, about 1-2 minutes per side.

6. Use a slotted spoon to move the fried cheese sticks to a plate lined with paper towels to soak up any extra oil.
