Can I Make "Parmesan & Chipotle Popcorn"?

Updated: Aug 29, 2020

I thought the "Parmesan & Chipotle Popcorn" from Ina Garten on the Food Network looked good and really easy & quick (30 sec. - 1 min.). I made it with some tweaks & what I had around my place.


Attempt #1:

Some of the tweaks I did:

1.) She uses 4 tablespoons of butter. Eventhough it probably helps the parmesan & chipotle powder coat the popcorn, I cut that out.

2.) I also didn't have chipotle powder; so I used chili flakes.

3.) The parmesan cheese I had in my fridge was shredded small, but not finely grated. I do think finely grated parmesan cheese would coat the popcorn better.

What I used:

- Skinnygirl popcorn

- Parmesan cheese (shredded, but grated probably works better)

- Chili Flakes

I just microwaved the popcorn & put some parmesan cheese & chili flakes and tossed it around.

RESULT: Success! :)

We are good at this! It's a nice little twist on your typical microwave popcorn that takes 30 seconds. Though it is easy and fast, it is fancy enough for a party. You could even make individual servings with little paper bags.

It is not too evident in the photos (haha), but the popcorn has parmesan and chili flakes. As I mentioned above, finely grated parmesan probably works better and adding butter (which I cut out) would probably help the toppings to coat the popcorn better. I think you could use paprika or cumin or even taco seasoning too.

However, I didn't think taking out the butter adversely impacted the taste and I don't like my popcorn to be too soggy anyways. :)

Give it a try! We are good at this!
