Cheesy Cajun Popcorn - Dell Cove Spices and More

 4 tbsp Dell Cove® Spicy Cajun Popcorn Seasoning
 4 tbsp Dell Cove® White Cheddar Popcorn Seasoning
 3 tbsp oil
 ½ cup Dell Cove® Classic Movie Popcorn Kernels
 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

David first discovered that our Dell Cove® Spicy Cajun and Dell Cove® White Cheddar popcorn seasonings blended well when we were actually staying in New Orleans on a quick weekend getaway. He had met up with some foodie friends in the area, who started playing with our spice blends in the kitchen - as true foodies do! Happily, all agreed that the result was delicious!

Using a 6 quart pan, add oil (vegetable, peanut or coconut work best because they have a higher smoke point than olive oil) and 4 popcorn kernels. (Essentially, enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan.) Cover the pan with a lid and place it over medium heat.


After these 4 test kernels pop, the oil is extremely hot. VERY CAREFULLY add your popcorn kernels to the hot oil, re-cover your pan and shake the pan back and forth, to coat the corn kernels and prevent burning. When the popping sound slows to one pop every 3 – 5 seconds, remove the pan from the heat and put the popcorn into a big bowl.


Put the butter into a small bowl and put it in the microwave for 10 to 20 seconds. Add more time if needed.

Remove bowl from microwave and pour the melted butter over your bowl of popped popcorn.

Optional: You can also use ghee, or instead use a spritz or two of olive oil.


Dell Cove® seasonings stick best to popcorn that is slightly moist and freshly popped.

Sprinkle the Dell Cove® Spicy Cajun and White Cheddar Popcorn Seasonings onto the popcorn. Using a spoon, gentle stir the popcorn to help the seasoning coat the popped corn. Repeat this process until the popcorn is seasoned to your taste, and serve
