Cheetos Is Bringing Back a Fan-Favorite Flavor

You asked, they answered!



Summer is right around the corner, which means warm days spent on boats, by the pool, or at the park, surrounded by your favorite snacks, of course. Because let’s face it, no successful summer plan is ever complete without a bag full of snacks.

Nothing against the classics—we love Cool Ranch Doritos and Salt & Vinegar Lay’s as much as the next person—but when those fun, limited-time snacks drop during the summer, we’re always extra excited. Who doesn’t want a ketchup-flavored Dorito or sweet and spicy chili Ruffle on their plate beside a hamburger, macaroni salad, and fresh summer fruit? You can save those plain potato chips for another time.

It seems that Cheetos got the memo, because this summer, the Flamin' Hot brand is bringing back one of its most highly requested flavors for a limited time. Sure, everyone knows a crunchy Cheeto is one of the best cheesy snacks, but what happens when you pair it with another iconic cheese? Something delicious.

Cheetos Is Bringing Back Its Salsa Con Queso Flavor

After a multi-year hiatus and many fan requests, Cheetos is bringing back its beloved Salsa con Queso flavor.

Cheetos Salsa con Queso is inspired by classic queso and has the same savory, slightly spicy flair as your favorite jarred dip—which makes sense, considering Cheetos and Tostitos are owned by the same company. The snack is Cheddar cheese-forward with hints of tomato, lime, and chiles.



The beloved Cheetos flavor had a good run in the early ‘00s, but was discontinued in 2008. It made a brief reappearance in 2020, but hasn’t been spotted on shelves since.

Now, Cheetos is bringing back the oft-requested flavor as part of its Cheetos “Deja tu Huella” campaign, which translates to “Leave Your Mark.” Every year, Cheetos searches for individuals making a positive impact in the Hispanic community and offers funding to continue pursuing excellence.

Cheetos is on the hunt to give away $25,000 again this year, which is why the Cheetos Salsa con Queso bags are specially designed with the Deja tu Huella logo. Once the snack begins rolling out to retailers nationwide, customers can scan the QR code on the bag and apply to be the next Deja tu Huella Ambassador.

The Salsa con Queso-flavored crunchy cheese puffs are only available for a limited time this summer, so if you’re one of the fans who signed this petition, you might want to stock up.
