It all started with this simple recipe posted by Reynolds Kitchen: A Hot Cheetos turkey cooked in a Reynolds oven bag. Sure, there were Ranch Doritos and Funyun covered turkeys included on the list, but it was the Hot Cheetos version that really had people reacting. The recipe — which calls for placing “hot puffed cheese sticks [read: delicious Hot Cheetos] in a food processor and process[ing] until fully crushed” —  involves brushing the turkey with oil or butter, coating it with the chip crumbs and roasting. And roast is what the internet did.

But of course, the hate wasn’t unanimous. Some people were into the idea of a turkey covered in tasty, cheesy chips. We mean, combining one good thing with another good thing is bound to make a great thing, right?

There are many things that seem to divide our opinions: durian, haggis, pineapple on pizza, cheddar cheese and apple pie, cilantro. Crocs. Kanye West. But, we all know what you’re wondering. Would we try this Hot Cheetos turkey? Is it an abomination, or absolutely genius? Does it really matter, since you’ve likely formed a strong opinion either way? Well, the answer is…

And we’re fine with that.
