I believe they use a paste, squeezed out of nozzles into hot oil, they
puff up from the heat

If it's not a commercial secret, you might get help with this from the

Dear Nebula,

The Food Network showed how Chee-tos are made in a show named
Unwrapped, a few weeks ago.  If you have cable, you could probably
catch the re-run.

From what I recall, the process is similar to what Bobthedispatcher
indicates, however, what was interesting is that the cheese thingies
are ejected and sprayed with the secret cheese ingredient at 90 degree
angles, and then they drop.  If you contact Frito Lay, you are likely
to get this information.

I hope this helps,
