I tried to make it healthy with fat-free butter spray I don't recommend this method. It tasted bland even with all the spices and cheese. Read More

Not too spicey for my "Ash-ba-gash"! Her asbestos mouth really loved this after school snack. We decided to use cayenne instead of the pepper flakes. Ty thought it was a little too much for her but she ate quite a bit anyway. Gotta go before my PC bids me farewell again and one of my favorite "I Love Lucy" episodes is on anyway. Hope you had a good trip Mick! Sara my daughter thanks you so much for this special little treat! Read More

I made it as directed and it was ok... T cheese made it a little clumpy. Then i made another batch with the taco seasoning as suggested by another reviewer and it was fantastic!... Without the cheese it was much easier to eat... but thanks for the basic recipe! Read More

Not bad at all...pretty spicy the cheese does clump together but not one big ball. Just you get little blobs of it ocasionally. I added cheese to the warm popcorn (right out of popper) and then poured the butter mixture overtop maybe the order helped mix the cheese in? If you want less bite reduce the paprika. Also I used maybe 1/3 or 1/4 cup of butter 1/2 cup would be drowning it imo. Read More

I omitted the red pepper because I don't like spicy and it turned out good. A quick tasty snack. Read More

The warmth of the popcorn basically made all the cheese clump together. No matter how much I tossed. I used taco seasoning mix which I thought would not be as spicy for kids. They loved it. And I agree it did have good flavor. But if I made this again I would not even bother with the cheese. Read More
