NEW YORK (AP) — Doritos Locos Tacos are a big hit for Taco Bell. So, could Dorito-flavored wings be in the works, or maybe even a Dorito pizza?

PepsiCo, the parent company of Dorito-maker Frito-Lay, has announced a deal with Buffalo Wild Wings.

The restaurant chain is switching from Coke to Pepsi. PepsiCo says say it will also be working with Buffalo Wild Wings to create what’s termed “unique menu offerings.”

Pizza Hut is also looking at incorporating Frito-Lay snacks in its menu.

Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and KFC have the same corporate parent.
