Cheebo? Cheefo? You decide. Here is a somewhat easy recipe to make something that tastes a little like a homemade Cheeto, but dank and garlicky. We couldn't decide on the best name! Weeto? This savory snack is easy to dose and scale, and even divide into gift bags for fellow home-bound friends.
2 sticks butter infused with 1000mg THC
2 tsp salt
2 tap garlic powder (heaping)
2 cups blue corn meal or regular
2 cups potato flakes
4 cups flour
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups water as needed
1 cup oil of choice
8 tbsp cheese powder (heaping)
4 tbsp buttermilk powder (heaping)
4 tbsp corn starch (heaping)
4 tsp salt (heaping)
Let your canna-butter soften a bit. In a food processor combine butter, salt and garlic powder with corn meal until mixed. Add in the cheese to make a dough. Dump into a mixing bowl. With your hands, work in the tater flakes and then flour. Finally, mix in the oil. Take the water you've set aside and add as needed to make a wet, workable yet not sticky, dough. Roll out the dought between parchment paper and cut to size, into 2-3" strips.
Fry the pieces at 375 in your choice of frying oil for 3 min, and set aside to drain and completely cool.
Now onto the coating. As for the cheese powder, if you can’t find any, just use packets from cheap Mac 'n Cheese and stash away the noodles for another day. Combine coating ingredients in a large bowl. Take note: I had ghost pepper salt to make mine extra hot n' spicy, but any will do. Cover the bowl and shake the coating onto the fried sticks. Use a colander to shake off the excess and reuse as you go along.
By the end you’ll find yourself with enough for a huge party (for when this all blows over)--or stash them away and get high every snack hour for the next two months. Your call--Bon Appetit!
