As a rule, TikTok is full of bad advice. The milk crate challenge? Come on. But at least that didn’t involve putting anything in your mouth. Now people on TikTok are making a Hot Cheetos Salad. It’s a salad, of sorts, that replaces the lettuce with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. It sounds more like punishment cereal.
To make it, all you do is combine Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, cilantro, cucumber, lemon juice, and Tapatío hot sauce. Apparently, it HAS to be Tapatío. No other hot sauce will do. Toss it all together in a bowl and…enjoy?
TikTok user @rxthism appears to be the first to post a video (below) about Hot Cheetos Salad. Since then, other users have been sharing their own attempts at making it and singing its praises. Probably because it cured their constipation.
But maybe it’s not as bad as it sounds. People are putting Flamin’ Hot Cheetos on pizza, burgers, fried chicken, and pasta, so why not a salad? Should Mel and I try it for one of our “Nosh or Nasty” videos?
