Taco Popcorn

Taco Popcorn

Ingredients

2 Tbsp coconut oil

3/4 C popcorn kernels or depending on your preference

1/4 C melted butter unsalted

1-2 Tbsp Penzeys taco seasoning or your favorite

1/4 tsp berbere seasoning, optional

1/4-1 tsp salt to taste, optional
Directions

1. In a large saucepan or dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Combine one kernel of popcorn and cover the pan with a lid. Once the kernel has popped, place all of the kernels in the pan and put the lid back on the saucepan. Shake the pan to coat the kernels with oil.

2. Shake the pan constantly as you start to hear kernels popping (this prevents burning). When the popping slows down significantly, remove the pan from the heat.

3. Pour the popcorn into a large bowl and drizzle with the butter. Sprinkle with the taco and berbere seasoning and salt and toss to combine.

Court’s Cooking Notes:

If you have a popcorn maker, then you can skip steps one and two. But please be cautious when preparing your popcorn and carefully read the directions that came with your appliance. Have fun and enjoy!
