Subway Is Test-Marketing Doritos Nachos? Gut Check Can't -- and Doesn't -- Wait

When Gut Check learned that, in an attempt to enter the Doritos-fast food arms race that Taco Bell began with its "Doritos Locos Tacos" a few months ago, Subway is test-marketing nachos made with Doritos at a Nashville, Tennessee, location, our first thought was, "Damn it -- St. Louis never gets to be a test market."

Our second thought was, "Wait a minute. We can make that ourselves."

Our third thought was, "COOL RANCH."

Our third thought turned out to be the best of the bunch.

First, though, a trip to the supermarket was in order to purchase the necessary provisions:

Doritos nachos: the ingredients

Ingredients in hand, we went to the break room at Gut Check International Headquarters and nuked the Cheez Whiz until it reached an appropriately velvety consistency. We spooned the melted cheese ("cheese") over plates of both the Nacho Cheese and Cool Ranch Doritos and then topped each with some sliced, pickled jalapeños.

The Nacho Cheese nachos were clearly the more photogenic of the two. (It didn't help that our camera is on its last legs, making retaking the terrible Cool Ranch nachos picture more trouble than it would be worth.)

But which would win the taste test?

"Self, what would Chester Cheetah's come taste like?"

I hate to nitpick, but it's "cum" ;)

I'll have to give these a try.

Ive been doing this at home for twenty years. Put the doritoes in the oven for 5 minutes at 300 degrees before adding the cheese. Much better that way. (melt some shredded cheddar on them while you're at it.

I've been making doritos nachos for years. 

I use nacho cheese doritos and mozzarella cheese and call them "reverse nachos". 

DELICIOUS!
