With my husband chaperoning Mr. 14 at his first 4-day golf tournament in the Hunter Valley, NSW, my daughter and I had a simpler (and less noisy!) week to ourselves. This translated to uncomplicated dinners, noticeably less housework and nightly chick flick sessions cuddled up on the lounge. And what goes perfectly with movies? Popcorn! But not just any old popcorn. I’m talkin’ serious stuff now. And seriously, Taco Popcorn is our new favourite snack!
Five minutes is all it takes to whip up this oh-so-tasty taco flavoured popcorn recipe which makes the perfect healthy snack. It’s easy, delicious, cheap and a much better option than the store-bought varieties which are full of preservatives and artificial colours. This recipe is versatile enough to be enjoyed with drinks by the pool or popped in school lunchboxes, you’ll love how easy this tasty popcorn it is to make!
This taco seasoning mix isn’t just great for popcorn, make your own taco seasoning & use it for bean or guacamole dips, veggie burgers, lentil nachos and more!
Making popcorn is made easy with my popcorn machine, but you can certainly make it the old fashioned way in a saucepan as I explain in the recipe below.
1. In a small bowl mix together the chilli powder, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and cracked black pepper.
2. I pop my popcorn in the popcorn maker I mention above. To cook in a pan, over medium heat up some olive oil or coconut oil in a medium saucepan and once the saucepan is hot, add in the popcorn kernels, pop the lid on and shake the pan to evenly disperse the kernels.
3. Shake the pan intermittently to prevent kernels sticking and burning until all the kernels have popped
4. Pour popcorn into a large bowl and add half the taco seasoning, taste test, and add more to suit your tastebuds then pour over the melted butter and stir very well.
