Updated on August 19, 2013

Curve your salty cheese cravings with these imitation doritos

If your like me and want to eat healthy as often as you can so you can save the bad days for special holidays, then this is a great recipe for you. I absolutely love nacho cheese Doritos. I find myself craving them on a regular basis if I haven't had a lot of carbs during the day.

For a healthy and almost too good to be true snack idea that requires no deep fryer, try these Imitation Doritos. This is one of the best healthy snacks at curbing those salty cheesy cravings.

I will admit that the recipe requires more work than some of the other recipes I have shared. But if you like doritos and are wanting a healthy alternative. Give these a try.
