Recipe Challenge: “Cool Ranch” Dorito Seasoning

One of Danielle's patients had lamented missing Doritos during their VLCD journey, and as we too are Dorito fans (it’s okay!), she wanted to find a seasoning that could be used to mimic that flavor.

We found this awesome spice mix that can be used on a cut up low carb tortilla or even used on your favorite protein (works great on ground turkey).

Adapted from She Likes Food blog


  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1.5 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried chives
  • 2 tsp dried dill
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp salt

For chips: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut one low carb tortilla into eight wedges and lay on a baking sheet. Spray quickly with cooking spray. Bake for 12 mins, flipping once. Re-spray tortilla chips and place a in plastic or paper bag with 1 tbsp (or to taste) of the mix and shake until coated.

Note: Calories are negligible in this spice mix.
