Reynolds Kitchens offered a novel take on a Thanksgiving staple. Yum or yuck? Reynolds Kitchens

Bored with Thanksgiving turkey? Spice it up with … Flamin’ Hot Cheetos?

By Andrew Sheeler:

This isn’t your parents’ Thanksgiving turkey.

Reynolds Kitchens, the company known for kitchen supplies like aluminum foil and freezer bags, gained national attention recently when its website offered a rather unique
take on a Thanksgiving classic: Coating your holiday bird with crushed-up chips.

The website offers recipes for “Hot Turkey,” “Ranch Flavored” and “Onion Flavored” turkey dinners to provide a truly novel — some might say nauseating — Thanksgiving dinner.

But there’s no reason to stick to Frito-Lay classics like Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, Cool Ranch Doritos or Funyuns. Why not go local with San Luis Obispo-based Taco Works chips?

You could go with a Salsa turkey or perhaps the Hot Nacho turkey.
