I read a great article today —

How to Turn Your Favorite Snack Food into Seasoning

The author recommends buying a cheap grinder at your local grocery store — perhaps when buying salt or pepper — and when it’s empty, placing small, broken-up chunks of your favorite snack foods inside.  Then use them as seasoning over appetizers, main dishes, desserts — you name it.

Voila — junk food seasoning.

grinderOf course, my first thought was Cheetos.

(If you’ve read this blog before, this should come as no surprise.)

We already know that Cheetos dust is super yummy eaten right off your fingers. Imagine it sprinkled on any of your favorite foods that already pair well with cheese…like popcorn.

Now you can take your Cheetos seasonings with you.  It’s certainly more portable than regular cheese since it doesn’t require refrigeration.

There’s enough preservatives in Cheetos to outlast us all.

Where have all the BBQ corn chips gone?

It’s not a silly question — it’s a timely one.

national corn chip day

Today is a national holiday devoted to this salty, crunchy, life-altering, lunch-completing, yummy snack.

Sure, I’ve eaten a few.

Personally, I prefer the BBQ variety.  But for some reason — I’m thinking all those healthier choices crowding the snack aisle — BBQ corn chips are harder and harder to find in my neighborhood bodega and grocery store.

So today’s post is my personal plea to Frito Lay, a company I have helped keep in business over the years:

“I want more.”
