Ina Garten's Parmesan Chipotle Popcorn {The Perfect Holiday Snack}!


I know what you're thinking...did she really post popcorn on her blog? Well, yes. Yes, I sure did, and let me tell you something, and I'll say it in bold so you don't miss it. DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS POPCORN! 

This popcorn is rated 5 stars of the Food Network and for good reason! It is simply coated in flavor: cheesy and buttery with a slight kick of chile. It is simply addictive and just plain impossible to stop eating. We inhaled it!

Right now we are in the thick of the holiday season and everyone is dithering about and shelling out money in a herculean effort to beat the clock and be ready for the big day. This popcorn takes all of 5 minutes to make and only cost a few dollars, if that, so I've declared it THE PERFECT HOLIDAY SNACK!

What are you waiting for? Get poppin'!

Serves 3-4

1 bag microwave popcorn, such as Newman's Own Natural 

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted

1/2 cup finely grated Italian Parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder

2 teaspoons fleur de sel

Microwave the popcorn for 3 to 5 minutes, according to the directions on the package, until the popcorn stops popping. Carefully pour the hot popcorn into a large bowl and immediately pour on the butter, then the Parmesan, chile powder, and salt. Toss well and serve hot.

  1. The five-minute and a few-dollars is the kind of deal I can't resist. And it comes warm to the touch. Thanks for another good recipe for the holidays.

  2. Okay, I am SO into this. Kind of ridiculous how easy and addictive it is.
