Cajun Popcorn Spice

"Although there are several recipes for Cajun flavored popcorn posted, this fiery blend has a unique combination of spices. Use this on your favorite popcorn popped in a microwave, on the stove or using popcorn popper. You will need a little moisture to get the spices to adhere, the choice (butter, margarine or a low calorie butter substitute) is yours. Store the spice in a air-tight container as you would other spice blends."

Ready In:



  • Chef's Note: The amount of cayenne is a matter of taste but also the heat level of your paprika. If you are in the slightest bit timid, start with 1/2 teaspoon, blend and add more if desired.
  • Mix all spices together in spice grinder or mini processor. Pulse quickly to mix spices and to break up the leaves of the herbs.
  • Sprinkle on popcorn to taste. Hot stuff!

"<p>I come from a long line of wonderful cooks and doing my best to hold up that tradition. My great-grandparents owned a coffee shop; my Nana was also a great cook and started the tradition of baking around the holidays, both cookies and fruitcakes. After she died, now a decade ago, our family decided to continue in her honor. The picture above is my mother's (Chef Hot Pans) dining room table just before we packed up our Christmas cookie trays. More that 20 kinds of cookies, many of which are from 'Zaar recipes. <br /> <br />I myself am an amateur cook with a penchant for ethnic foods and spice. Currently reforming my menu in favor of healthy dishes lower in fat with lots of grains and vegetables. My favorite cuisines are Mexican, Southwestern and North African. <br /> <br /> <br />Some of my favorite public cookbooks include:</p> <li>ladypit's <a href=> WW Core Recipes I Have Tried </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>shirl(j)831's <a href=> Can this really be lowfat??? </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>julesong's <a href=> Cooking Light Recipes </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>mariposa13's <a href=> WW &amp; Lowfat Recipes </a> </li> <p><br /><img src= alt=Dirty /> <br /><a href=;current=kitchen-special-hot2-1.jpg target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=FFF#2 width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Adopted /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=PAC /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=ZWT3 /><img src= alt=width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>"

    This was delicious! I found it was too salty with the full 1/2 tbsp. of salt. Next time I'll leave the salt out of the mix altogether and add it to the popcorn separately to taste. I used a little under 1 tbsp. of spice for 1 cup of unpopped corn kernels.

    I've always made popcorn with paprika,garlic and onion powder, so the dried herbs were new for me.Just like you said:"Hot Stuff!"

    Yummy! Yummy! Just me for dinner tonight and thought I'd just have popcorn but wanted to spice it up. This was perfect! Loved all the spices and it woke up the mouth. Thanks. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag Game 2010.

    I didn't put this on popcorn. Instead we put it on recipe #47195. It is very good on the potato chips. My dh likes it with a lot - I like a little less. Great that we can each have it our way. Thank you very much for the lovely recipe that we will use again & again.

    My boys love those Red Hot Cheetos, so I decided to surprise them with some kick-up popcorn. Yowza, they were amazed and delighted that Mom made this for them. In other words *Keeper* will be making again for our movie nights. ;) Thanks for Sharing.... ~V
