photo by gailanng
- Ready In:
- 1⁄4 cup nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1⁄8 - 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
- 2 teaspoons sea salt or 2 teaspoons himalayan salt
- Combine all seasonings and blend in a coffee grinder, or blender, to make a fine powder. Store in a seasoning jar.
- Sprinkle seasoning over freshly popped popcorn (popped with oil - it won't stick to dry popcorn) and toss to coat.
It really does make popcorn taste like Doritos! Since my daughter and I both have corn chip allergies and are not able to eat Doritos anymore, we can now get a similar taste with this recipe. Very easy to mix up - I just stirred together all of the ingredients and then ground them a bit finer with my mortar and pestle. I sprinkled a light coating over hot buttered popcorn - delicious! The only thing I did differently was to leave out the cayenne pepper - the chili powder made it spicy enough for my daughter. This recipe is a keeper.
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I am a Christian wife and mother of 3 kids. Since my DH's high cholesterol, we've been eating better. I never used to like cooking. Since eating better, I've liked learning and preparing new recipes. My kids haven't reconciled themselves to the new eating yet. I grind my own grain and make all my own breads.?Working 2 hours a day in the local high school lunch room.??I am homeschooling my high schooler.? ?Also found out 1 child has multiple food allergies (wheat, dairy, tomato, chocolate, etc) and another is gluten sensitive. So, we just started (July 09) eating gluten and dairy free. I've been busy with getting our house market ready, even though it's not the best time for that.?
