Yes, that’s right – Flamin’ Hot Cheetos … sushi. Whether you think this idea sounds delicious or sacrilege, it’s more than just a clickbait recipe; it’s actually a real dish that you can buy and consume in 33 states plus Washington DC (via Best Products). And it’s all thanks to a collaboration between Frito Lay (the company that makes Cheetos) and Hissho Sushi.
The Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Roll includes plenty of spice in the form of Spicy Krab, crushed Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, spicy mayo, and oil. However, it also features three ingredients designed to counter the burn: avocado, cream cheese, and cucumber (via PennLive). As strange as it may sound to have Cheetos on sushi, the CEO of Hissho Sushi, Dan Beem says the dish was designed to take the sushi experience to the next level: “We also know that our retail partners’ customers demand new and authentic innovation – from moms on the go bringing home dinner to their family or the typical college student yearning for a new food adventure.”
What fans are saying about the new Cheetos Flamin' Hot Roll
Foodies have already started posting about the new Cheetos sushi on social media and causing quite a stir. For instance, when Instagrammer @lindseyeatspnw posted a photo of the roll this week the response from her followers was enthusiastic and included plenty of drooling and fire emojis (via Instagram). One person commented: “I’m definitely curious….” and another: “That looks so good!” followed by a pepper emoji. A poll from user minneapolisfoodiegirl showed 88 percent of her followers wanted to try the dish, while the remaining 12 percent selected the option “I’m scared” (via Instagram).
Redditors, however, seem somewhat less convinced about the new Hissho Sushi; with one post calling it “#blasphemy” gaining 150 upvotes (via Reddit). The comments on the post range from “definitely a sushi abomination” to “I’ve had similar rolls, using flaming hot Cheetos as an ingredient. 10/10.” Whether or not you’re going to rush out to try the new Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Roll, you have to admit it gives new meaning to the phrase “avoid orange fingers, use chopsticks” (via Instagram).
I’m clearing out the shelf.
Two of my main food groups are Hot Cheetos and sushi, and while I originally thought the two couldn’t go together, Frito-Lay and Hissho Sushi have teamed up to prove otherwise. Together, the two brands have put together a sushi roll that has an added spicy crunch from Hot Cheetos. The best part? You can find it at quite a few grocery stores to try it out.
This unique sushi roll—aptly called the Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Roll—is made with “Spicy Krab,” avocado, cream cheese, cucumber, crushed Cheetos, and a drizzle of hot mayo. The mix of cream cheese, cucumber, and avocado are meant to help cool down the spice from the Cheetos.
Although this might seem like one of those super exclusive food collabs that’s only available in a few places, the Hissho Sushi brand is actually carried at a lot of mainstream supermarkets across 33 states and Washington D.C. You can find it at Target, Stop & Shop, Meijer, Kroger, Giant Food, and Safeway, and a full list of retailers can be found on this Hissho Sushi website.
If you’re not quite sold on this combo, just think of this Hot Cheetos addition as something that adds both crunch and spice to a classic spicy crab roll. You may already use wasabi or order sushi rolls with tempura inside to achieve either of these flavors and textures, so Hot Cheetos are actually a pretty logical way to go here! Of course, you’ll never know until you try it, so be sure to check your closest grocery store—and don’t forget the soy sauce on the side.

The new Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Roll is made up of Spicy Krab, avocado, cream cheese, cucumber, and crushed Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, and it’s drizzled with hot mayo and oil. Look, we know this isn’t a typical roll and it’ll take a minute for your mind to get used to it — but if you like wasabi on your sushi, just think of this as another form of heat.
You might not have realized it, but Hissho Sushi is carried at a range of retailers and grocery stores, including Target, Stop & Shop, Meijer, Kroger, Giant Food, Safeway, and more. You can find locations carrying the brand in 33 states and Washington, D.C.
