Doritos-encrusted bacon redefines superfood

Bacon's just fine as it is, but that hasn't stopped DudeFoods' Nick Chipman from messing with perfection. First it was Oreo-glazed bacon strips. Now, he's taken the next logical step by debuting deep-fried, Doritos-crusted bacon.

The process itself is actually as easy as opening a fresh bag of Cool Ranch. Just fry up however many bacon strips you want (so, all of them), then coat the cooked pieces in flour and an egg wash. That's when you sprinkle on the crushed-up chips, which should adhere nicely to that goopy covering. Drop the newly orange slices in a deep fryer (or pan of super-hot oil) for about 30 seconds each, and voila. We don't wanna say this beats deep-fried Doritos pizza, but it kinda does.
