Doritos® Releases Big Game Action-Packed Spot for Dinamita® Starring Super Grannies Dina & Mita, and Danny Ramirez & Jenna Ortega

Written by Frito-Lay

The first-ever Doritos Dinamita Super Bowl commercial blows away expectations by introducing fans to Dina and Mita, a feisty duo of unlikely heroes whose love for the perfectly spicy, flavorful heat of Doritos Dinamita propels them through any obstacle that stands between them and their new favorite snack.

“I know everyone is going to love Dina and Mita just as much as I do. Their fire and spice were delivered so authentically in the commercial, thanks to the talented, diverse cast and crew,” said star Jenna Ortega. “It means so much to me to not only star alongside Dina and Mita, but to collaborate with the whole team to bring the story of Dinamita’s explosive flavors to life and to connect with Latin and Hispanic cultures.” 

In the commercial, airing during the third quarter of Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, February 11, Ortega, Dina and Mita search for their favorite Dinamita chips when actor Danny Ramirez snatches up the last bag for himself. Since nothing will stop Dina and Mita from getting their hands on Doritos Dinamita snacks, the feisty pair leaves Ortega in the dust as they begin an explosive pursuit.

“I wasn’t expecting Dina and Mita to be so committed to getting their hands on Doritos Dinamita. The flavor they brought to the chase was amazing,” said Ramirez. “While it was a blast to play the antagonist in this story, I will be holding on to my Doritos Dinamita a little tighter from now on.”

“Doritos has built a legacy over the past 24 years with Super Bowl campaigns that feature the highest caliber of talent and innovation, but you’ve never seen us like this before,” said Brett O’Brien, chief marketing officer at PepsiCo Foods North America. “We’re not only bringing the entertainment to fans this year by introducing Dinamita during one of the biggest cultural moments of the year, we’re talking directly to consumers who are on the lookout for something new, different and packed with flavor.”

Encouraging fans to “Go Ahead, Try Us,” Doritos Dinamita is getting in front of intense flavor seekers all year leading up to Super Bowl LVIII. From delivering a new spectrum of flavor and spice to retailers nationwide and building anticipation for their explosive in-game ad, to showing up in Las Vegas in style and reaching spice-lovers on social, Doritos Dinamita is bringing the heat:

  • For weeks, the brand dropped teaser images and videos (found hereherehere and here) fueling fan speculation about what Ortega and Ramirez may have up their sleeves and who else may join them on their mission.
  • Doritos became the first sponsor this year to wrap a Las Vegas building in honor of Super Bowl LVIII when a giant Doritos Chip took over the South Strip. Fans in Las Vegas will also have the chance to win Super Bowl LVIII tickets if they spot and visit the larger-than-life chip and scan it through the Triangle Tracker lens starting today through February 10.
  • In the days leading up to Super Bowl LVIII, fans in Las Vegas can pick up free Dinamita snacks at the oversized, over-the-top Doritos Dinamita Slot Machine located on Fremont Street on Friday, February 9 and at Allegiant Stadium on February 11, while supplies last. Not only will they score free Dinamita, but they’ll also have the chance to win explosive merch.
  • On gameday, the stars of the Doritos Dinamita ad spot – Dina and Mita – will not only make their debut during the in-game commercial, they’ll also be appearing around Las Vegas during Super Bowl LVIII. Fans will have to keep their eyes peeled – and keep their hands on their Dinamita.

After Super Bowl LVIII, Doritos Dinamita will continue to turn up the heat with even more flavor and spice as part of the brand’s 360-degree marketing campaign. After the game, expect to see Dina and Mita take over TikTok, crashing videos from some of the platform’s biggest creators. From more influencer collaborations and ongoing TV and digital flights to in-person sampling and a college ambassador program, fans can expect to see even more from the brand. Plus, who knows where else Dina and Mita will show up next in pursuit of their favorite snack.

New Doritos Dinamita Flamin’ Hot® Queso, Hot Honey Mustard, Smoky Chile Queso and Tangy Fiery Lime flavored snacks can be found alongside fan-favorite Doritos Dinamita Chile Limón flavored snacks at retailers nationwide. Hot Honey Mustard, Smoky Chile Queso and Tangy Fiery Lime create a multi-dimensional experience in the new Dinamita® Stick form.

To keep up with Doritos Dinamita, tune in to Super Bowl LVIII this Sunday, February 11 and follow @Dinamita on TikTok.

About the author


In 1932, C.E. Doolin entered a small San Antonio cafe and purchased a bag of corn chips. After learning the manufacturer was eager to sell his business, he bought the recipe and started making Fritos corn chips in his mother’s kitchen. He sold them from his Model T Ford.

That same year, Herman W. Lay started a snack food delivery company in Nashville. He too bought out the manufacturer to form H.W. Lay & Company, which became one of the largest snack food companies in the Southeast.

In 1961, the two companies merged and Frito-Lay, Inc. was born. Four years later in 1965, Frito-Lay, Inc. merged with Pepsi-Cola to form PepsiCo. Snack lovers everywhere rejoiced.
