Jenna Ortega's Action-Packed Doritos Dinamita Super Bowl Commercial Is a 'Wonderful Celebration of Latin Culture'

Dina and Mita, Jenna Ortega's fictional grandmothers, go on the hunt to find Doritos new Dinamita rolled chips in the snack brand's Super Bowl commercial

Jenna Ortega and Doritos Dinamita chips aren't the only dynamic duo in their Super Bowl commercial.

The Doritos ad, which was released on Monday but will air during the big game on Feb. 11, celebrates the snack brand's new rolled chip flavors with the help of the Wednesday star and two unlikely action heroes.

Ortega, 21, is joined by her fictional grandmothers, Dina and Mita, for a grocery store trip. When the Scream actress walks to another aisle, a feud begins between Dina, Mita and another Doritos Dinamita fan played by Danny Ramirez.

The grandma-duo duke it out with the Top Gun: Maverick actor over the last chip bag — motorized scooters and all. Ortega, oblivious to her grandmothers' high-speed chase, calls out for them at the grocery store.

Dina and Mita karate chop and kick their opponent but still have grandmother-like tendencies, including taking a break from the action to coo at a baby. While fawning at the infant, Ramirez escapes in an elevator with the chips. But he can't get away that easily. Dina and Mita create a makeshift zipline to knock him out and take back the snack.

"It's not dynamite," the ladies correct Ramirez. "It's Dinamita."

"Abuelas!" Ortega says, taking the chips out of Dina and Mita's hands. "I've been looking everywhere for you."

Doritos has been a part of Super Bowl commercial breaks for 24 years, according to a release, but this is both Ortega's and Doritos Dinamita's first-ever Super Bowl commercial. Ortega told PEOPLE filming the commercial was like "coming home."

"For the first year of my career, I was only allowed to do commercials," she explained. "And I did some big ones, but nothing to the level of this or to this extent. So it was like a weird nostalgic, 'Wow, it's been 12 years and then this is where I'm at now.'"

Ortega told PEOPLE that, in addition to loving the chip brand, her costars and commercial crew drew her into the project.

"You have Dina and Mita, two Latinas as the lead, and then we got to bring Danny Ramirez on board, who is another really wonderful Latino actor who's doing so well right now," she said, adding shout-outs to the director, cinematographer and the other film crew members. "I think that it is just a really, really wonderful celebration of Latin culture."

PEOPLE had an exclusive first look at the Doritos Dinamita teaser on Jan. 24. In the 15-second teaser, Ortega walks down a grocery store aisle, looking around until she spots something that makes her eyes widen in fear.

“Oh no,” she says, looking fearfully at something out of the camera’s frame. “No!”

The camera swings around, showing an empty shelf where Doritos Dinamita should be.

“No, no, no, no, no, no, no,” she continues, her eyebrows furrowed and her hands stressfully grabbing her hair. Ortega grimaces and whispers, “This is not good,” while the date for Super Bowl LVIII (Feb. 11) pops up on the screen.

The scream queen tapped into her horror movie talents for the teaser but the full advertisement doesn't have any of those scary elements.

"I kind of pull people in with the horror aspect and I think people think we're leading that route," she said, adding that the teaser also pulled her into the project. "I'll always be happy to do a horror project, which is why it was fun paying homage to it in that little teaser."

Doritos Dinamita launched four new flavors on Jan. 10. The chips now come in Flamin’ Hot Queso, Hot Honey Mustard, Smoky Chile Queso and Tangy Fiery Lime. The new flavors joined the original Chile Limón flavor.

Hot Honey Mustard, Smoky Chile Queso and Tangy Fiery Lime are available in a new stick option — similar to a veggie stick. The Flamin’ Hot Queso and Chile Limón take on the classic rolled chip form.
