If you are making the popcorn from scratch, use about 1/2 cup raw popcorn. Coat the bottom of a 12 inch skillet(I use cast iron) with the oil and heat oil till it gets good and hot. When popcorn starts popping, shake pan over high heat till popping stops.
Combine butter and seasonings; mix in popcorn until well coated. Sprinkle with cheese, stir well.
