Vegan Doritos

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by messystation

This recipe is from I had been sprinkling nooch on tortilla chips and wondered if there was a recipe out there that replicated the other flavors in Doritos (which, before the milk allergy, I could eat by the bagful). I immediately tried this and I'm just as addicted to these.

Holy haberdashery, Batman! These are GOOD! My sister and I used to love Doritos when we were kids in the 80s, before the formula drastically changed and they just became gross. Plus, this DIY approach means no chemicals! I scaled the recipe down a bit and used this spice mix with Recipe #395640 with olive oil and lemon juice (had no clue one could buy citric acid at a store...?), omitting the salt because there's enough flavors. However, I would recommend this if you have an acquired taste for vegan staples and substitutions; those who are too used to regular Doritos and are expecting a "true cheese" taste won't like it as much but if you have a palatte seasoned to nootch, you'll love these and won't be able to get enough! Thanks for a great post, this seasoning mix would also be great on tofu and french fries.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) bag tortilla chips (I think this is for a regular chip bag, I use the bigger brown bags like Mission, and double the res)
  • 13 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 12 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 12 teaspoon paprika
  • 14 teaspoon citric acid (the veggieboards people used lime juice, I left it out entirely)


  1. The original directions say to put all ingredients in a resealable bag and shake.
  2. I just dumped the nooch in the bag with the chips, shook it, then mixed the spices together, dumped them in the chip bag, and shook it.
  3. Try not to eat the whole bag.
