This Hot Cheetos Thanksgiving Turkey From Reynold Is Causing A Lot Of Tension On Social Media
Hot Cheetos have been the go-to snack for teenagers and young adults since they were released in 1992. These spicy corn-based snacks are worth every hot and painful mouthful. Have you ever eaten so many of these deliciously hot snacks that you questioned if you really even need a healthy stomach? If you’re a diehard fan of Hot Cheetos, this take on the classic Thanksgiving main course will make your mouth water. Reynolds Kitchens wants you to cover your turkey in a thick coating of ground-up Flamin’ Hot Cheetos this year, and we’re not sure how we feel about it.
Reynolds Kitchen wants you to spice up your Thanksgiving turkey… literally.
“Kick up the flavor for your next Thanksgiving turkey with these popular chip flavored turkeys,” says Reynolds Kitchens at the top of their recipe, obscuring whether they mean that the chip-flavored turkeys are popular or whether they mean that the chips themselves are popular. How does somebody even come up with that? Who sits there eating their turkey dinner and thinks “You know what this really needs? A block of Cheddar and a family bag of hot Cheetos!” But wait a sec, you have to admit it, it is an idea.
Would you try a Hot Cheetos turkey?
On Friday ABC-7 shared a recipe from Reynolds Kitchens, which is the recipe website of the Reynolds brand: “Hot Turkey in an Oven Bag” (which is a turkey covered in a thick coating of ground-up Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, or as they put it, “hot puffed cheese sticks,” and cooked in an oven bag. Of course, Twitter discussed it. “When I was growing up a turkey was baked in the Oven then u had regular cornbread dressing……now they covering the mf in hot Cheetos no fucking thank you!!!” tweeted one user.
People are begging people not to follow the recipe.
Nothing says ‘spice up the holidays’ quite like a cheese-stuffed, hot-cheetos-covered turkey.
Few things defy Thanksgiving traditions like shoving a gigantic 2-pound block of cheese inside your turkey’s carcass and then coating all over it with crumbled Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Because why would you make a basic turkey when you can have a Flaming Hot Cheetos coated turkey, stuffed with cheese and potatoes?
The recipe video instructs us to start with a 15-pound turkey that gets brined in salty water and brown sugar.
After more than a few generous dashes of tabasco, it marinates. Of course, after you cover the turkey with melted butter, the crushed Cheetos — the star — coat the turkey. Oh but before the Cheetos, of course, you stuff the turkey with an industrial sized block of cheese.
Another Flamin’ Hot Cheeto turkey recipe went viral in 2017 courtesy of Reynolds Kitchen, which also offered Cool Ranch and Funyuns variety.
But this highly shareable, highly doable recipe video went viral just this past weekend, why? People do not find it appetizing. But honestly, who knows? It could taste amazing. After all, it has the key ingredient: Hot Cheetos. What’s not to feel thankful about?
From covering elotes to becoming works of art, Hot Cheetos are a trendy, viral snack.
Flamin’ Hot Cheetos have become ubiquitous from memes to works of art. In fact, searches for the snack have become an increasingly popular search on Google over the last few years, so it was just a matter of time until this idea surfaced.

Sure, Many people eat them as they are quite delicious and really enjoyable on a basic level. However, so many others have taken the snack and it into a culinary treasure, and it’s getting a little out of hand if you ask us: Hot Cheetos Bagel anyone? Or how about a Hot Cheetos covered Corndog, or corn on the cob.
So what do you think, would you try it? Or would you sooner chew up broken glass? Because we’re torn.
