DORITOS POPCORN INGREDIENTS

DORITOS POPCORN INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Prepare popcorn using your preferred method. I have a popcorn air popping machine!
  2. Optionally, finely grind nutritional yeast, garlic powder, cumin, paprika, chili powder, and salt in a spice grinder. I find it helps coat the popcorn more evenly.
  3. On a large baking sheet, place popcorn. Pour melted vegan butter, and toss the popcorn to coat.
  4. Sprinkle the nutritional yeast mixture over the popcorn, and toss well to coat. Taste and add more salt, nutritional yeast or chili powder as needed.

    Hi Candice! All your recipes are 🔥…question, is the “oil” that goes over the popcorn melted vegan butter? (I ask because the Ingredients don’t list an “oil”). Thank you so much 😊

    • EdgyVeg says:

      Hi Patti! You can use melted butter or oil! I used melted vegan butter, but I know some people might not have access to vegan butter, so I also included oil. Hope you enjoy the recipe!

  • Krista says:

    So…by oil do you mean the vegan butter (and I assume it is melted)? I don’t see any other option that makes sense in the ingredient list.

    • EdgyVeg says:

      Oil or melted vegan butter can be used for the seasoning to stick. I recommend vegan butter though, but mentioned oil as an option in case a reader only has access to like coconut oil or something.

    I’ve been thinking about Doritos all day. Get out of my brain and thanks.

  • Sarah says:

    I saw this took only 4 mins to make so I tried it last night for movie night and it was a great popcorn seasoning! I didn’t have cumin at home but I enjoyed it either way!
