Emily’s Famous Popcorn

Everyone who eats this popcorn just loves it. My kids, their friends, my friends, and family all expect this for an evening of movie watching. A delicious whole-grain snack!

Original recipe makes 12 cups


2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup unpopped popcorn
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan or soup pot over medium-high heat. Add popcorn, and place the lid on the pan. Shake to coat kernels with oil. When the corn starts to pop, shake the pan constantly until the popping stops. Remove from heat, and pour popped corn into a large bowl.
  2. Drizzle the melted butter over the corn if using, and sprinkle with yeast, chili powder, cumin and salt. I like to give it a little stir before serving.
