Top Your Doritos with Gummy Bears and Pork Rinds in Mexico


Sounds like a wackier version of a Fritos pie to us.

Mexico City has taken the simple nacho cheese Doritos and made them loco! Meet the Dorilocos, the newest Mexico City street food craze that lives up to its name. Teenagers and 20-somethings wait on long lines for a sampling of a bag of Doritos sliced open and topped with everything but the kitchen sink: carrots, jicama, cucumber, pickled pork rinds, peanuts, jellied candies, lime juice, chili powder, and hot sauce.

It may sound nauseating, but over the past year, the combination nightmare for diabetics and gastritis patients everywhere has exploded in popularity. There are Facebook fan pages dedicated to the street food, and YouTube tutorials that can show you how to make your own.

“They’re just a fad,” Carlos Gonzalez, a pushcart tamale vendor, watching teens line up at the Dorilocos stalls across the street, told the Washington Post. “They’re for kids.”

Evelia Alcala named her stall Dorilocos La Sonrisa — roughly, translated, “Crazy Doritos with a Smile” and she sells them for 18 pesos, or about $1.50. You can even get the same crazy salty-sweet snack made with Fritos, Ruffles chips or Flaming Hot Doritos.

5 Unusual Mexican Treats to Tempt Your Taste Buds This Summer

Known for its spices and tantalizing flavors, Mexican treats have long been a favorite go-to snack to cool off during the hot summer months. Not only do they provide a mouth-watering experience of flavorful concoctions put together to create a delicious and refreshing cocktail of sorts, but there are also unique snack offerings that will make you go “mmm.” Below are five unique Mexican treats you can find across our great state of Texas among the many food stands around.

1. Mangonadas

A Mexican delicacy known around town as mangonada is a favorite summer time snack to cool down and spice up any pallet. It is the perfect blend of a sweet, sour, and spicy mixture made up of your favorite combination of treats such as chunks of mango drenched with chamoy, lime juice, and chili powder to top it off. “Chamoy is a sweet and spicy sauce made from dried apricots that are used as a dip for fruit or in paletas and raspados,” shares dorastable.com.

Some are even topped off with candies such as gummy bears, sour belts, sour worm candy, strawberries, pineapples, cucumbers, and jicama. A great recipe for a mouthwatering mangonada can be found at dorastable.com.

Mexican paletas, or popsicles, are a favorite go-to snack, but these aren’t just your ordinary popsicles. Paletas come in a variety of flavors and combinations each with its own unique twist. There are paletas made up of coconut, lime, mango, pineapple. You name it there is probably a paleta out there you have fond memories of. You can even come across paletas de cactus or a popsicle with pieces of cactus. There are even paletas de mango y chile powder or paletas de guayaba. The sky’s the limit when it comes to these Mexican frozen delicacies.

Elotes are a Mexican delicacy served up straight on the cob or cut up and placed in a cup. Doesn’t sound much different than your traditional corn on the cob, but this version is smothered in crema (cream), lime, mayonnaise, chili pepper, and queso fresco (fresh crumbled cheese). Whether you smoother your corn on the cob or pile layer after layer of its delicious ingredients in a cup, it makes for a great on-the-go snack full of flavor and spices leaving your taste buds wanting more. Street corn is a well-known snack in Mexico, Houston, and beyond as this traditional dish is a favorite.

4. Dorilocos

This Mexican snack has been around for about 15 years. Dorilocos is well a snack that has gone a bit loco with its coupled ingredients mixed in a bag of nacho cheese Doritos and served up proudly on the streets of Mexico.

Because everything is bigger in Texas, of course, this tantalizing snack full of robust flavors has become a favorite as well among Texas residents making it ever so popular. The mixture includes the nacho cheese Doritos topped with pickled pork skin, jicama, hot sauce, cucumbers, carrots, peanuts, and here’s the catch – it even includes a portion of gummy bears to give that sweet and spicy taste that makes this snack truly out of this world.

One of this Hill Country writer’s favorite Mexican sweet treats is the churro. They can be fried and rolled into long tubes, sometimes twisted to add to its artistry, without any fillings and sprinkled with sugar. These make a perfect accompaniment to dip in a cup of Abuelita hot chocolate or a cup of champurrado, a traditional thick Mexican drink made of corn masa and chocolate. For an even more authentic version of the churro, you will find them stuffed with different fillings like dulce de leche, chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry. A scrumptious melt in your mouth churro can also include a version filled with Nutella.

These may not be your ordinary run of the mill snacks, but they are some old time favorites many grew up with and continue to enjoy not only in Mexico but across the great state of Texas.

One of this Hill Country writer’s favorite Mexican sweet treats is the churro. They can be fried and rolled into long tubes, sometimes twisted to add to its artistry, without any fillings and sprinkled with sugar. These make a perfect accompaniment to dip in a cup of Abuelita hot chocolate or a cup of champurrado, a traditional thick Mexican drink made of corn masa and chocolate. For an even more authentic version of the churro, you will find them stuffed with different fillings like dulce de leche, chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry. A scrumptious melt in your mouth churro can also include a version filled with Nutella.

These may not be your ordinary run of the mill snacks, but they are some old time favorites many grew up with and continue to enjoy not only in Mexico but across the great state of Texas.
