Even though the ramen already has a spicy sauce of its own, Wendy adds a sprinkle of Hot Cheetos as the special touch.

Sometimes Wendy finds these Hot Cheeto treats outside of her home too, such as at city fairs.

Here she’s holding a big piece of Hot Cheeto fried chicken.

In addition to Hot Cheetos, Wendy is also a huge fan of Takis.

In this segment of Wendy’s Eating Show, Wendy cooked up giant Takis chips. She made these the same way you prepare tortillas from scratch, except she added a special hot sauce and Takis dust all around.

Wendy has also created the green salsa version of the giant Takis.

And this is where the debate comes in of whether the green sauce or the red sauce is better.

Also on Wendy’s list of featured Hot Cheeto dishes is this Hot Cheeto pizza.

But if cheese upsets your stomach and spicy sauce upsets your stomach, then this might not be the best combination for you. Lol

In addition to pizza, Wendy also gets down with this delicious Hot Cheeto burrito.

This is making me so hungry. Can someone get me a Hot Cheeto burrito please?

Another dish you can easily prepare is this Hot Cheeto quesadilla.

All you need for this is a tortilla, cheese and crushed Hot Cheetos.

If you can handle double the spice, here are some Hot Cheeto jalapeño poppers you can prepare.

I don’t think I would be able to handle the spice from this snack TBH.

As for everyone who’s obsessed with elotes, here you have a Hot Cheeto covered elote.

For this spicy treat, Wendy mixed both regular Hot Cheetos and Hot Cheeto Puffs to cover the elote.

And of course, Wendy couldn’t miss out on making a Takis covered elote.

This is making my mouth water. Someone get me a Takis elote ASAP.

Besides Hot Cheetos and Takis, Wendy also discovered a snack that included Hot Fries.

Chester’s Hot Fries are a little bit more flaky and softer than Hot Cheetos and Takis, which some people don’t like. But you won’t know for yourself until you give them a try.

But if you’re not a fan of fries, then here are some cheesy Hot Cheeto nachos.

I wish I could find these at every restaurant.

Another perfect dish for all seafood lovers is this plate of Hot Cheeto sushi.

For something a little more refreshing, there’s this Hot Cheeto coco loco.

This treat has a combination of coconut, lemon, cucumber, chamoy and of course Hot Cheetos.

Last but not least, there’s Wendy’s Takis covered mango.

Little Caesars Hands Customer Pizza With Pepperoni Swastika Made As ‘Insensitive Joke’

One Ohio couple recently received an order for a pizza that’ll leave a pretty rancid taste in your mouth.

After running errands with his wife Misty Laska this past Saturday night, Jason Laska said they picked up a pepperoni pizza from Little Caesars. Eager to eat they cracked open the pizza once they got home, receiving a shocking surprise that likely ruined their appetite.

Misty noticed a backward laid swastika made out of pepperoni slices on the pie.

After getting in touch with Little Caesars, the couple was told it was meant to be a funny and private joke.

According to The New York Times, when Misty Laska first opened the takeaway pizza she noticed that it was not sliced. Then, she and her husband realized that the pepperoni pieces had been prepared in the shape of a swastika.

Misty told Reuters that when they first realized what they saw they were “just silent.” Furious, they returned to the store to return the pizza, the shop was closed. The next day, the pizza chain, which is the third-largest in the country called, to apologize.

“We have zero tolerance for racism and discrimination in any form, and these franchise store employees were immediately terminated,” Little Caesars told The New York Times. “This conduct is completely against our values.”

“That’s why it was not cut or anything like that,” Jason Laska said. “They made it as a joke and it was never intended to go out to a customer.”

However, even if the joke was meant to be a private one it is gross and unacceptable.

“Even in a joking manner, it’s absolutely unacceptable,” Jason Laska added.

Jill Proctor, a spokesperson for Little Caesars confirmed the incident and said that the employees involved were fired in a statement to CNN. “We have zero tolerance for racism and discrimination in any form, and these franchise store employees were immediately terminated. We’re deeply disappointed that this happened, as this conduct is completely against our values,” Proctor continued. “We have also reached out to the customer to discuss this personally with him.”

In response to the firing of the employees, Misty has said she hopes they are learning an important lesson.”These are the kinds of things that are continuing to fuel the hate and the confusion that exists in the country and in the world,” her husband said after sharing that they both hope

The Laskas hoped that by sharing their experience others will educate themselves about Nazism and the symbols used to perpetuate it.
