Spicy Popcorn

I love popcorn. It is my go to snack. Sometimes I don't want just plain buttered popcorn, though I'd never turn that down.

You will need a container with lid, large enough to hold the popcorn and be able to shake it around.


Popcorn- pop 1/2 cup or make enough for about 4 quarts popped
4 Tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon paprika powder
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon grated Parmesan cheese
Salt for sprinkling

In a small bowl, combine the paprika, cayenne pepper, parsley, garlic powder, and Parmesan cheese.
Set aside.
Pop your popcorn.
Melt the butter and drizzle over the popcorn.
Sprinkle lightly with the salt.
Sprinkle the spice mixture over the popcorn.
Cover with the lid and shake it really well to coat the popcorn.
Take off lid and enjoy.

Makes enough for 4 or more people.


  1. Sounds good. I've never added anything, except butter, to my popcorn. It'd be fun to try some different recipes.

    1. Suzi, it's good to try different spices sometimes. :)

  2. Yummy - this is just what I needed - I'm having a craving for something crunching and I'm trying to avoid the chip world - (the dark underbelly of my existence) so, I will give this a go!


    1. Jenny, I have a dear friend who grows her own popcorn and keep me supplied. I had to come up with yummy new ways to eat it.
