How To Make Taco Popcorn

Make movie nights extra special by making this taco popcorn. The spicy and slightly garlicky taste of the taco seasoning definitely improves the taste.

Preparation: 1 minute
Cooking: 5 minutes
Total: 6 minutes



  • 1tbspcoconut oil
  • ½cuppopcorn kernels
  • 2tbsptaco seasoning,homemade or store-bought
  • 1tspsalt,to taste
  • melted butter for drizzling,optional


  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over high heat until melted. Add popcorn kernels, and give the pan a shake so that they level out. Cover with a lid and wait until kernels have popped.

  2. Once the popcorn is popped, pour it out into a serving bowl. Immediately sprinkle with taco seasoning and salt, and toss to combine. Season to taste with additional seasoning or salt if desired.

Recipe Notes

  • A healthier and vegan alternative is also to toss the popcorn with nutritional yeast — my favorite.
  • A good rule of thumb is to wait until there are at least 3 seconds between pops, so as not to burn the popcorn. Give the pan a shake every 15 seconds or so, in order to let the kernels fall to the bottom and the popped popcorn rise to the top, which also helps prevent burning.
