Homemade Doritos Recipe

Pat almost died when I made this copycat Doritos recipe. I mean, this is his version of heaven. And since they’re homemade Doritos, we are telling ourselves they are healthy. Of course they’re fried, which means they are not actually healthy, BUT…we are in denial. And I’m okay with that! Besides, I’ll always take a homemade version, where I know exactly what’s in them, over a bag of chips made in a factory.

The only negative with these homemade Cool Ranch Doritos is how messy your fingers get. But thathappens whether you buy them at the store or make them at home. And I don’t know if that really counts as a negative, because that’s kind of part of the fun of Doritos, right?

How to Make Cool Ranch Doritos at Home

All you need is a few ingredients and about 30 minutes to make these Cool Ranch Doritos. They are so easy to make, so delicious, and so fun for parties. It’s the best thing to snack on in front of the TV, while watching movies, or on game day!

How to Make Cool Ranch Doritos:

  1. Heat oil in a dutch oven or deep set pot. Oil should reach 350°F before frying.
  2. Cut the uncooked tortillas into triangular wedges (like chips!)
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine ranch seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.
  4. Fry the tortillas in batches for about 3 minutes, until they get crispy. Use a wooden spoon to carefully press them and de-puff them (they will fill up with air while frying).
  5. As soon as you remove the tortillas from the oil, place them on a paper towel lined plate. Then sprinkle and toss them in the cool ranch seasoning.

This homemade Doritos recipe makes about 5-6 dozen chips, so plenty to snack on. Store them in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag, and they will last up to 2 weeks (assuming you don’t eat them all!).

  • uncooked small corn tortillas I used one package
  • 2 1 ounce packets dry ranch seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • peanut oil or canola oil for frying


  • Heat oil in a dutch oven or deep fryer and heat to 350F. You want about 2 inches of oil minimum.

  • Cut the uncooked tortillas into wedges, like pizza slices.

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the ranch seasoning, paprika, garlic, onion, and salt. The seasoning works best super fine, so you can pulse in a blender if you would like, but its optional.

  • Working in batches, fry the tortillas until crispy, about 3 minutes per batch. I used a wooden spoon to press the tortillas down one at a time to let some of the air out, otherwise they can puff up very easily. Be careful with this step because the oil can bubble up.

  • Place the fried tortillas on a paper towel lined plate and sprinkle with seasoning. Toss to combine, then sprinkle the flip side. You want to do this right after removing from the oil. Allow to cool.

  • Repeat with the rest of the tortillas. This will make quite a bit of tortillas, about 5-6 dozen for the amount of seasoning. You can also keep the seasoning in an airtight container for later use!

  • Store chips in an airtight container for up to two weeks. Enjoy!
