    These look so good! I have yet to master breading anything but these look doable! I love 3 types of Doritos. The Spicy Sweet Chili ones, the very hard-to-find Salsa Verde ones, and the original taco flavored that you can’t get any more. I can’t do dairy so they just had to add it to the taco ones that didn’t used to have it! I’ll use the Spicy Sweet Chili ones when I make this! Hopefully very soon! I have a bucket stack of maybe 50 recipe printouts or so but we’ll see! Thanks for your videos and congrats on the birth of your daughter!
