Cajun Popcorn, Make it Hot or Not



I love this spicy popcorn! It's so addictive. I used to make this all the time as a teenager, but today is the first time I've made it for my kids with a few adjustments. Two out of the four members of the Picky Kids Quad loved it. To me this recipe screams Movie Night. 

 

 Cajun Popcorn

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 quarts popped popcorn
In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients; set aside. In a
small saucepan, heat oil over medium for 1 minute; add seasonings.
Cook and stir over low heat for 1 minute. Place the popcorn in a
large bowl; add seasoning mixture and toss to coat. Yield: 3 quarts.
