Nacho Cheese Doritos Hummus

Cheesy, savory, and completely addictive Doritos hummus!

Nacho Cheese Doritos Hummus Recipe

I am on a Doritos kick this month!

After devouring my entire batch of Cool Ranch Hummus, Nacho Cheese was the obvious next flavor. And after that? Who knows! I could always look for inspiration in my childhood home of Japan, where they offer Doritos flavors such as Winter Cheese, Royal Shrimp, Italian Seafood, and Tuna Mayonnaise.

Tuna Mayonnaise Doritos? ReallyWho me?

Homemade Doritos-inspired hummus flavors, nacho cheese & cool ranch: https://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2015/06/04/nacho-cheese-doritos-hummus/

Although I’ve always subscribed to the idea of not knocking something until you’ve tried it, I will stick to the classic Doritos flavors and spare you any attempts on my part to come up with a Tuna Mayonnaise Doritos hummus.

You’re welcome.

Instead, I give you Homemade Nacho Cheese hummus, this time served with vegan cheddar kettle chips.

I haven’t had a Nacho Cheese Dorito in years and therefore can’t say for sure that the recipe will remind you of that classic Doritos flavor, but this cheesy hummus is fantastic in its own right… and highly addictive!

Nacho Cheese Doritos Hummus - MUST TRY!

Nacho Cheese Hummus

Adapted from Cool Ranch Hummus

  • 9 oz cooked chickpeas OR 1 can drained, unsalted
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp oil OR water
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast OR cheddar-style shreds
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/4 tsp crushed garlic
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
  • optional pinch cayenne

Note: Using the oil will yield more depth of flavor; however it can easily be left out if a lower-fat version is needed. If you wish to peel the chickpeas before blending, you’ll get a smoother dip, but it is NOT required. Nacho Cheese Hummus Recipe: Combine all ingredients in a high-quality blender, hand blender, or food processor. Process until the dip is completely smooth. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

    2/5.
    Not for me. Usually your recipes are spot on but this one….not so much. It’s ok but not one I’ll keep. Maybe because I like spicy versions (and yes, I added some cayenne). Spiced it up but didn’t enhance the flavour. Also needed to add 2x the water as it was way too thick.
    I do like nutritional yeast as I make a popcorn seasoning mix with it so that’s not it.
    Sorry.

    My husband and I did not care for this dip which was unfortunate because I was so hopeful after trying several of your other amazing recipes. When you first smell it, it definitely resembles nacho doritos but once it’s in your mouth it just tastes like tomato paste. I may use it on pasta as another reviewer mentioned in an attempt to salvage it.
