This Buffalo Popcorn Recipe is the perfect homemade snack for movie night, watching football, or just family game night at home!
Hey again! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. I’m back here today to share one of my favorite snacks with you.
I have a major sweet tooth, but it’s equally matched with my strong desire for savory and salty snacks. I’m talking, chips and salsa, cheese & crackers, and popcorn by the handfuls! My absolute favorite is the store-bought white cheddar popcorn, but my goodness, don’t get me started on the number of ingredients are listed on the bag of those bad boys! Let’s just say, I can’t pronounce half of them. I’m all about making my snacks from scratch if at all possible.
Another one of my favorites is anything buffalo flavored. I made a Buffalo Bean Dip last year for super bowl that I seriously crave all the time!
But you gotta be careful with buffalo flavorings. It can easily go from a yummy kick to WAY overboard quick. I made that mistake once with some buffalo chicken quesadilla and could barely even eat them because it was so spicy. Thankfully, I had a huge glass of milk to wash it all down.
Well, you don’t have to worry about this popcorn being too hot. Even my super picky kiddo, who is super scared of spicy food, absolutely loved this buffalo popcorn.
Perfect spices. Perfect for a game night at home with the family. Or you could probably just sneak some into the movie theater in your big ole bag like I do. Shhh, don’t tell!
