    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You will never go back to eating regular popcorn ever again after you try this! --- adjust all amounts to taste, for more heat use use a small amount of cayenne or Cajun seasoning blend.

      These were just ok to me. They were good tasting, but I found the popcorn gets soggy and its kind of a total mess to eat.

      I've mad this recipe so many times. It's about time I reviewed it! My fmily and I LOVE THIS! Instead of canned green chilis, I use fresh roasted jalapenos. We like it spicy. My favorite additions are; diced tomatoes (well drained on a paper towel.) After the chesse is melted, I add fresh cilantro and sometimes green onions. Thanks for a very simple recipe, that makes a kick butt snack. :)
