Let’s switch modes for a bit and get away from the sweet snacks. I felt like making popcorn the other day. And I didn’t want any plain old popcorn. Of course not. So I decided to throw a bunch of spices on top and see how it turns outs. This combination gives it a nice spicy, savory flavor and kicks it up a notch from your old boring plain popcorn. Plus, I felt a bit less guilty when I thought of all the health benefits that you get from the spices.
This is super easy to put together, stays good for up to a week, and makes for a great quick snack when you gotta have something now. All it takes is cooking the popcorn and shaking it all together in a baggie. That’s really all there easy. It’d be a great recipe to get kids involved if you really wanted to. So go ahead, make this, play with flavor combos, and have fun!
