How to Make Game Day Cheesy Taco Popcorn

Cheesy Taco Popcorn
I love snacking but can’t snack on super sweet foods like I used to. Between getting older and not wanting to destroy all the work I do in the gym, I prefer lighter snacks.
If you would have seen this week’s menu the snack section was filled with popcorn.
I took a break from smoothies and decided to try making some flavored popcorn.

Cheesy Taco
Makes: 3oz.    Prep time:10 minutes *store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

  • 6 tablespoons of taco seasoning (recipe here)
  • 6 teaspoons parmesan cheese

Cheesy Taco Popcorn
To add the seasoning, I popped my popcorn as I normally would and immediately sprinkled the Cheesy Taco seasoning into the bag. I shook it and added more until it was well coated.

These were so delicious. Y’all don’t even know, but you will when you try this recipe.

  1. This could be the perfect snack for Super Bowl evening. My friend is throwing a party and I'll share your recipe with her. She is going to love it!

  2. I love making my own popcorn seasoning! I do something very similar to this as well, was just talking about it last night as well!

  3. This is a very unique way to enjoy popcorn. My husband loves spices and snacks so I think that he would totally approve.

  4. Wow this is so easy to make! And it looks delicious and like it takes more effort than it does!

  5. Oh I so agree with you and for me gametime snacking is the most dangerous as we tend to eat tons of it while cheering away with friends/family. Love the idea of popcorn snacks and I might include it in our next party.

  6. Oh yes this is awesome. I will have to do this as we love tacos and we love popcorn so why not! such a great idea! – jeanine

  7. Nice! I've done something similar when we ran out of the popcorn seasoning. I just threw a bunch of random salts/spices on my popcorn and it was almost better than the other stuff!

  8. You had me at parmesan cheese. I'm gonna have to try this. I love savory snacks so this is right up my alley.

  9. Oh my goodness! Now I know how to make my popcorn more exciting! I am going to make some this weekend for my movie marathon!

  10. This is basicaly taking my two favorite things and combining them so I am down!

  11. This popcorn looks so good. I normally just use butter, but I am going to make this for movie night.

  12. I've never tried popcorn and cheese but I think I'll avoid a lot of cheese to not waste all my efforts in the gym, so I'll try it with lesser amount of parmesan!
