Nacho Popcorn

Here is a recipe for Nacho Popcorn that I found in Weight Watchers Weekly from some time in 2010. Enjoy!

2 points per serving*
5 minutes to prep, 9 minutes to cook
3 cups per serving, serves 4 people

  • 12 cups popped 94% fat free butter flavored popcorn
  • 1/4 cup light butter
  • 2 tsp reduced sodium taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat shredded Mexican style cheese
  • Preheat oven to 300* F
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil
  • Place popped popcorn in a large bowl; remove any unpopped kernels
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, microwave butter until melted; stir in taco seasoning mix
  • Pour mixture over popcorn; toss until evenly coated
  • Spread popcorn on prepared baking sheet; sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake until cheese melts, about 6 to 8 minutes
If you want, set out 1/4 cup each sliced jalapenos, sliced olives, and diced tomatoes to be used as toppings for the popcorn (will increase points to 3 per serving*)

Serve with small bowls and spoons
