  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan or soup pot over medium-high heat. Add popcorn, and place the lid on the pan. Shake to coat kernels with oil. When the corn starts to pop, shake the pan constantly until the popping stops. Remove from heat, and pour popped corn into a large bowl.
  2. Drizzle the melted butter over the corn if using, and sprinkle with yeast, chili powder, cumin and salt. I like to give it a little stir before serving.

I make this all the time! This is the best popcorn ever! I don't use the butter, and the spices stick just fine from the oil it was popped in. This is such a better alternative to microwave popc...

I don't think I've ever had popcorn that's tasted better; drizzled with olive oil, then added topping. Mix well!

Really enjoyed this popcorn. Popped up just a half a cup in my air popper and used parmesan cheese in place of the yeast. Next time I may mix some hot sauce in with the butter for some heat. ...

Quite good. I was a little skeptical at first - Mexican popcorn? - but it doesn't really taste the way I expected. I guess that's the nutritional yeast working its magic. I used air-popped popco...
