This Taco Popcorn is a savory snack that your party guests and family will love. It’s tangy and slightly spicy flavor is always a crowd pleaser, how could it not be? I have added a unexpected blast of lime to take this fun snack to the next level, and you can control the amount of heat when you make your own taco seasoning…..

I should probably warn you, this Taco Popcorn is addictive!! I couldn’t stop myself from grabbing a handful each time I walked through the kitchen, LOL

It is also healthy…well maybe not if you are following a Paleo or Whole30 diet, but it is vegan, low-fat, and preservative-free assuming you use my homemade Taco Seasoning.

How do you make Taco Popcorn?

Pop 10 cups of popcorn {about 1/2 cup of kernels}

I pop mine in the microwave using a brown paper bag and the POPCORN setting. 

Drizzle one Tablespoon of oil over the popcorn in a large bowl and toss to coat.

  • I popped 1/2 cup of popcorn kernels in a brown paper bag on HIGH for 2 minutes and 40 seconds using a 900 watt microwave.
  • 1/2 cup of kernels equals 4 ounces.
  • Feel free to pop your popcorn on the stove. I am apparently incapable of performing that task without setting off smoke alarms!
  • Nutritional Yeast Flakes are a deactivated yeast and not the same as the yeast used to make dough. It has a nutty, cheesy flavor and is a significant source of complex-B vitamins.
  • Nutritional yeast can be found in health food stores and on Amazon.
  • You can use any taco seasoning if you do not feel like making your own at home. Look for one that does not contain crazy additives, MSG, or preservatives.
  • I used True Lime®to add a tangy, unexpected flavor to this Taco Popcorn. Substitute the zest of one lime if you prefer.
