Cajun Popcorn

Cajun Popcorn

It’s the beginning of the year and many of us are looking to cut calories, but still want a good snack.  Here is a good treat that is worth a little splurge.


2 1/4 Teaspoons Kosher Salt

1 1/4 Teaspoons Paprika

1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

3/4 Teaspoon Onion Powder

3/4 Teaspoon Ground Pepper

3/4 Teaspoon Dried Oregano

3/4 Teaspoon Ground Thyme

3/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

1/4 Cup Melted Butter

24 Cups Plain Popped Popcorn

Pop either 1 cup of kernels in a pan on the stove or pop 4 microwave packages of popcorn.  Personally I think the stovetop is a better way to pop popcorn.  In a small size bowl mix together the kosher salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, oregano, thyme and cayenne pepper.  In an extra-large size bowl drizzle the butter over the popcorn and toss.  Add the spice mixture and toss well to coat.  Serves 12
