I would have liked to give this a higher rating but boy I just couldn't. First I did not want to use oil so I used butter. Cooking it with the taco season for 1 - 1 1/2 minutes I knew was too long. So I didn't, yup I was right. Second microwaving the popcorn, season mix, and cheese did not work at all. Time was way too long even at 30 sec. Most of the cheese and seasoning ended up globbed around the unpopped kernals (theres always some it seems) at the bottom of the bowl. I will try this again but adjust the times and get rid of the unpopped kernals first.
