Ingredients

Instructions

  • Cook the popcorn as per package directions, or as follows: Add the oil to a large, 3 quart or larger pot over medium heat. Add the popcorn kernels and cover, with the lid ajar.
  • Shake the pot back and forth every few minutes. Remove from the heat when the popping has slowed and most kernels are popped, approximately 7 minutes. Set aside.
  • While the popcorn is popping, make the chipotle cheddar seasoning by combining the cheese powder, chile powder, and salt in a small bowl. Mix to combine and adjust flavor to taste.
  • When ready to serve, lightly drizzle the popcorn with approximately 1 teaspoon of oil. Just enough to wet the popcorn without it getting greasy or soggy. Stir to coat. Immediately sprinkle the seasoning on the popcorn and stir again to coat. Serve immediately.

Notes

It is best to use a neutral oil with no flavor like vegetable or canola oil.
Make a large batch of the seasoning to have on hand!
Reduce the chipotle chile powder by half for a mild heat.  The exact spicyness will vary with the exact chile powder you use, so taste and adjust as needed for preference.
