Any Fritos fan (raises hand) can tell you that there’s no substitute for the iconic deep-fried corn chips. They are a truly sui generis snack food. However, TikTok has now brought us a recipe for “DIY Fritos” that, while, OK, is not the same as the actual thing that comes in a bag, does look pretty tasty.

TikToker @wholesome_lee, who shares healthy recipes with her 95.7k followers, recently shared a video and recipe for “1 Ingredient Protein ‘Fritos’ Twists,” which she says are a “low calorie high fiber snack.”

They’re made with chickpea pasta, which is first boiled and then air-fried or baked in the oven until crispy. Once the pasta twists are “cooked and crispy,” DIY-ers are instructed to pour them in a bowl, spray them with a little bit of oil, top them with a spice blend (like cajun) and then “enjoy!”

At 68 calories per serving, the DIY Fritos may be diet-worthy. If we’re being honest, they look more like the Israeli snack food Bissli. But who are we to quibble?
