“It’s BUSSIN’ BUSSIN’,” wrote Ruth or @rxthism, in her TikTok video clip.
Ah, another day, another viral TikTok food trend has taken over social media. The TikTok user posted a recipe video, which involved flamin’ hot Cheetos sometime around late August, and the much-loved packet of spicy chips has broken the internet.
Except that it is in the healthiest dish there is: a salad.
All you need is a few seconds and a handful of ingredients and ‘voila!’ you’ve got yourself a tasty, somewhat-healthy snack to keep in check. So go ahead, buy a bunch of cilantro, dice your cucumbers, add in a few too many drops of Tapatío hot sauce (or any hot sauce), pour in a little lemon juice and top with spicy cheetos.
Mix it all up, and you are left with a crunchy, spicy, tangy and tasty bowl of salad. Or should we say chips? We’re still figuring it out.
But, there’s only so much you can do with a packet of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Right?
Wrong! It’s a world of possibilities out there and Cheetos is actually just a tiny and tasty part of it. Especially since there’s flamin’ hot mountain dew, flamin’ hot crusted chicken, flamin’ hot mozzarella sticks… well, the list just goes on.
The resurgence of flamin’ hot Cheetos and adding it to a salad is definitely the first of many. However, this isn’t a fairly new concept, because Cheetos have found its place among food lovers who like to live a little by “amping” up their food with it. And it just keeps getting better and better (I assume).
It’s been in sushi…
Your favourite fizzy drink wasn’t spared either.
Not to mention, pasta…
Chicken wings… burgers… and more!
Now that Cheetos is on your mind, here are a few salad recipes from our repository you can try and most definitely should pair with your favourite chips.

But here’s the thing, eat your Cheetos salad before it becomes soggy. Or it doesn’t taste or look as good as it’s supposed to.
