If you’re already planning on snagging a copy of the upcoming Mountain Dew cookbook, you may want to earmark some funds for this one, as well.  

The cheesiest snack around is launching its very first holiday cookbook – and, yes, it comes with a Cheetos twist on seasonal classics like tamales and mashed potatoes. However, in this cheesy collection, they’re known as “Flamin’ Hot Tamales” and “Mashed Paw-tatoes,” referencing mascot Chester Cheetah’s paws.

“For years the Cheetos brands’ passionate fanbase has inspired us with their creative use of Cheetos as a cheesy, crunchy or spicy recipe ingredient, so we’re thrilled to return the favor with these exclusive holiday recipes,” said Rachel Ferdinando, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Frito-Lay North America.
