Give into your salty cravings with this cheesy popcorn recipe that combines four different seasonings for a flavorful spin on the simple popped snack.
I’ve been on a popcorn kick lately, where I’ve been adding a little of this and that from our collection of seasonings to spice it up a bit. We always make our own popcorn using coconut oil, which is wonderful on its own with a bit of salt. Adding extra seasonings, however, has been enlightening for my taste buds.
Most recently, I combined four different seasonings with some grated Parmesan, and it was exactly the salty goodness that I needed to help me avoid other junk food.
After making popcorn like we usually do and pouring it into a serving bowl, I drizzled about 1 Tablespoon of olive oil on top and shook it up until the olive oil seemed well-distributed. Then I took the combination of Parmesan, salt, chili powder, garlic powder, and smoked paprika and sprinkled that over the top of the popcorn. Once again, I shook it like crazy to help get the seasoning blend all over the popcorn, as to avoid too many places of concentrated saltiness (which is also a bit good, not going to lie).
- Pre-made unseasoned popcorn
- 1 Tbs olive oil
- 1 Tbs Parmesan
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp chili powder
- 1/8 tsp smoked paprika
- On already-popped popcorn, drizzle olive oil and shake to coat.
- Add Parmesan and all seasonings and shake until well-distributed.
There will definitely be some seasoning at the bottom of the bowl, but the amount above seemed to work well to coat our two servings-ish of popcorn. The main idea is the ratio of seasonings.
Hope you enjoy! I’m sure I’ll be sharing more flavored popcorn recipes in the future, so stay tuned!
