Sweet Chili Doritos review
Y'all, Sweet Chili Doritos are a true joy. And yes, they're accidentally vegan!
There used to be two varieties of vegan Doritos, but they've discontinued the Blaze flavor, as far as I can tell. If you happen to find Blaze Doritos, please tell me. I want to eat them!
But back to those sweet, Sweet Chili Doritos. They're a little bit spicy, a little bit sweet, and flavor-packed. They're pretty much a staple in our house, and Dave -- hater of nachos -- wants me to make nachos with them.
As far as their spiciness level, I'd say that they're medium spicy. They aren't challenge-level hot. But if you don't like any kind of spiciness in your food, these probably aren't for you.
The sweetness on these chips isn't cloying at all. It's just a hint of sweetness that offsets that warming chili heat beautifully.
For me, it's a perfect balance of sweet and heat. Combine that with the corn chip crunch, and you've got a snack that's totally addictive.
If you're a fan of sweet, Thai chili sauce, like I use in this sweet chili tofu recipe and my bang bang tofu, you'll likely be a fan of these!
I've heard rumors that Sweet Chili Doritos have been discontinued, but I've still been seeing them in stores, and they're still listed on the Doritos website. So never fear! They're still out there as of this most recent update, friends.
Dave also shared a cautionary tale of buying a bag of the Salsa Verde Doritos. These are dairy free, but when he got them home, he discovered that they have chicken in them! Why, Frito-Lay??

It's now July and I don't see them anywhere
I am so sorry to hear that! I'm seeing them listed online at Target and Kroger, but who knows if they're actually in stock. I'll look when I hit the store this weekend.
