Chili Cheese Popcorn

popcorn childrenThis is one of my favorite frugal snacks


Pop six cups of popcorn- the air popper is fine, or do stove-top.  If you do bags of microwave popcorn it’s no longer frugal.


Meanwhile, combine, melt, and stir together:

4 Tablespoons melted butter

1/2 to 1 teaspoon each chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt

1/4 teaspoon paprika

Toss all over warm popcorn.  Adjust the flavorings to taste- I like more of just about everything, and I sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top of it all and give the bowl a good shake.

You omit the cheese if you just want chili popcorn

    We do something similar with taco seasoning and nutritional yeast (which is similar to parmesan in taste). Love it!
