Calories In Doritos

One serving size of Doritos chips is typically one ounce, or 10-12 chips. There are 150 calories per serving in Doritos, no matter the flavor.

Doritos come in a variety of flavors and have been on the market since they were introduced in 1965.  They are one of the most popular corn-based tortilla chips on the market and FritoLay has done its best in marketing to keep them number one.

Doritos are anything but healthy.  If you are trying to cut calories in Doritos, just avoid them.  However, in the event that you do eat the chips, try to limit yourself to just a few.  At 15 calories each chip, eating many can rack up a large number that will need to be burned off. Doritos are lower in calories than the standard potato chip, partially because they are lower in saturated fat.  There are several varieties that are considered to be gluten free, so for those with allergies this is good news.

For dieters, there really is no good news.  Doritos are considered to be high in calories and fat.  While eating one or two chips probably wont hurt, consuming 50 will!  The taste of Doritos can be addictive, so you will need to exhibit personal restraint when eating from the bag.  Remembering to keep your portions low will help prevent you from racking up calories in Doritos.
