How do you top the incredible innovation of deep-fried tequila shots? Some would say with a badass karaoke rendition of "Tequila Sunrise." Wrong... never listen to an Eagles fan. The real answer is with an equally physics-defying snack... behold, Doritos fried queso balls.
The chef behind Oh Bite It! has followed her recipe for crispy Cuervo with this revelation, which is like a mozzarella stick, only somehow more amazing. To make them, just slam a bag of Doritos into tiny crumbs and chuck them in a bowl. Next, roll some Mexican Velveeta cubes into balls, coat them in an egg mixture, then roll them in the Doritos. A quick trip to the deep-fryer nets you a crunchy, cheesy explosion of flavor that won't just render 7-11's Doritos Loaded snacks obsolete... it might make you a tailgate legend.
