1/2 (1 ounce) package
taco seasoning mix
hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco®)
This is good, but I made it a little different as to stay lower fat. I popped the popcorn in the air popper and sprayed it with a bit of low fat butter spray. I used Bill Echols taco seasoning (minus the salt), which is also from this site. Low in calories and carbs and solves the salty cravings I've been having since I started dieting. My youngest son didn't care for it but my oldest son and I sat and enjoyed this together.
The recipe calls for twice as much butter as needed. Because I've done a lot of popcorn recipes I did a little more than half the suggested amount. Otherwise I found this recipe to be a little spicy so be sure to have something sweet or bland to balance it out as you eat it. Or you can put in a little less spice. But otherwise I found this to be a good recipe, but definitely not my favorite. There are many other flavors I enjoy more. Its almost as if it needs a little cheese flavor or other variation added.
This was SO good! To cut down on the salt I made my own taco seasoning and used lightly salted microwave popcorn. Big hit and thank you!
A nice change from factory made flavored chips! Grand!
This is way too salty! Next time I will leave out the season salt altogether. I would also double the hot sauce.
Made this for my boyfriend, he said he loved it. We used habanero hot sauce but followed recipe other than that.
Just what I was looking for! Yum!
