This Taco Tuesday, do something a little different and make preservative free, gluten free zesty taco popcorn. Hot air popped popcorn and homemade taco seasoning make this treat healthy and delicious. It will be a hit with kids and adults alike!
1/2 tbsp. chili powder
1/8 tsp. garlic salt
1/8 tsp. onion salt
1/8 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
8 c. popped popcorn
olive oil cooking spray
1. Mix spices in small bowl and set aside.
2. Make 8 c. popcorn in your hot air popper.
3. Drizzle melted butter OR use cooking spray and mist popcorn with olive oil. This will help the seasoning stick to the popcorn.
4. Sprinkle seasoning on popcorn and toss until thoroughly coated.
5. Top with shredded cheese and serve immediately.
Adjust seasoning amount based on taste. If you’d like your taco popcorn a little spicier, add more cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes.
Also, the preservative free and gluten free taco seasoning can be used to season taco meat. In fact, it can be used as a substitute in any recipe that calls for taco seasoning! You’ll never need to use pre-packaged seasoning again!
Tip: Make taco seasoning ahead and store in an airtight container for quick and convenient use.
