The Cheetos waffle and chicken sandwich at TD Garden’s Frito Lay Test Kitchen is sure to raise questions. Such as, why would anyone add crushed Cheetos and jalapenos to waffle batter? But those questions are likely to vanish after the first bite. This riff on the classic chicken-and-waffle combo sandwiches a crispy chicken tender between fresh, hot waffles and drizzles the top with maple syrup. The taste is addictive and unfamiliar: savory, sweet and brightened by a jalapeno kick. “For a different take on fries, we serve a mix of Cheetos-flavored popcorn and Cheetos on the side,” says concessions sous-chef Jeremy Karr. There’s no graceful way to avoid maple-syrup fingers as you eat this dish, so grab some napkins and dig in.
