Pour the hot water and stir the mixture. It will look like a polenta and liquidly at first, but the mixture will tighten. So, do not expect the texture of the dough, it cannot be mixed with hands, and believe us, it will unfold in a thin sheet without any problems!

Place a sheet of baking paper on the work surface, which should be more or less the size of the pan. Transfer half of the mixture in the middle and cover it with other paper. Press with your hands firmly to form a disc, and then gently remove the top paper. With a pizza cutter start cutting triangle shapes in the dough.  The remaining dough put it in another pan. Then, place the pans in the heated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes with the fan on. Regularly check the homemade Doritos chips, so they don’t burn. When the chips are done, they will have nice golden color and crispy texture. Serve it with salsa or guacamole dip.
