Spice is a flavor trend that’s not going away any time soon. While you can go the traditional route and create heat using peppers and other fresh ingredients – why not get playful, and use a spicy element that’s already a hit – HOT CHEETOS.
Check out these 10 Instagram posts from restaurants and businesses that have already added Hot Cheetos to their menu.
