I like the fact that your fingers get all orange when you eat these, and when you lick your fingers, they taste like Cheetos, too. It's hard to get more intense cheesiness out of anything else. I use them at the restaurant in a broccoli side dish with a homemade cheese sauce; I crush the Cheetos and sprinkle them on top. The flavor, texture, and look of the dish all come together by adding that one component. —Craig Koketsu, Park Avenue Winter, New York City**
