These Reinvented Tostilocos Will Have You Thirsting Like No Other
Those of us who love Tostilocos know the deliciously classic savory snack that’s a heavenly combination of Salsa Verde Tostitos tortilla chips, chamoy, hot sauce, Japanese-style peanuts, Chaca Chaca, jicama, cucumber and cueritos.
The original mix of salty and spicy flavors is absolute perfection.
But as with anything good, someone’s always gonna drop a remix to try and make it better. And sometimes that remix just might be better than the original. It worked for J.Lo’s “I’m Real” or Craig Mack’s “Flava in Ya Ear,” if you want to take it way back.
In the quest to add more loco to the snack game, people have come up with some awesome Tostiloco remixes that are so mouthwatering they may just be better than the original.
But then there’s Dorilocos, which are the same as Tostilocos but with nacho cheese Doritos.
I guess the old snack adage is true: when in doubt, add nacho cheese Doritos to whatever you’re eating. That’s a thing people say, right?
Nacho flavor? Well, how about adding Takis to whatever you’re eating?
I can get behind that one.
Churritoslocos did the same thing, taking the tried and true Tostiloco ingredients but adding them to crunchy churritos.Tere R./Yelp
I’m here for it.
Pepi-locos change things up by making the cucumber the main star of the show.
Pepi-lokos, Pepi-sushi, Pepinos Locos…call what you want. We have them!!! #raspado_guerrero #raspadosguerrero #pepinos #japanesepeanuts #tajin #chacastroso #chamoy #yummm #cravings #comegetyours #musttry #musthave #getyourfix #instafood #instagrub #foodporn #refreshing #fresh #freshtreats #mexicantreats #az #azliving #azlifestyle #phoenix #phoenixlife #youknowyouwantone
Also called Pepi-sushi, Pepi-locos take a hollowed out cucumber and fill it with all the stuff you’d find on Tostilocos. Some spots even plate the Pepi-locos on a bed of Tostitos. Next level and classy af.
Or you can say “f-ck it” and stuff it all into a pineapple.
Or really say “f-ck it” and drop it all into a watermelon.
It’s just so beautiful.
While those stuck to the basics and changed things up a bit, some Tostiloco remixes get a bit more wild.
That’s a whole other level of flavor. Sea level, if you will.
You can also find a shrimp remix that’s hot fire.

#youknowyouwantone is the most accurate hashtag ever.
Cheetos Locos replace the Tostitos with Cheetos. You can choose from Flaming Hot or regular. Whatever your stomach desires.
There really is no wrong way to remix Tostilocos, and these are really just the tip of the loco iceberg. Stay remixing those Tostilocos, fruterias!
