When I allow myself to indulge in a snack, I make this spicy popcorn. One batch doesn't last long at our house. You can add more or less red pepper flakes to suit your family's taste.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 5 min.
- 10 cups popped popcorn
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Place popcorn in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine the butter, paprika, cumin and red pepper flakes. Pour over popcorn; toss to coat. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and toss again.
