  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup popcorn kernels


  • In a small bowl, combine the salt, paprika, garlic powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper; set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a medium to large pot with a handle and lid (3-quart or larger), combine the coconut oil and popcorn kernels over medium heat. Put on the lid.
  • Once the kernels begin to pop, continue cooking over medium heat, gently shaking the pan (helps prevent popped kernels from burning), until the popping stops. 
  • Immediately remove the lid and pour the popcorn into a large bowl.
  • Drizzle the melted butter over the popcorn and sprinkle with the spice mixture (add the spice mixture to your taste - as much or as little as you want - I usually use it all). Toss well to evenly coat the popcorn with the butter and spice mixture.

Recipe Notes

  • Store any leftover popcorn in an air-tight container for a few days. 
  • If you don't use all of the spice mixture, store it in a small air-tight container to use the next time you make a batch of popcorn.
