These easy popcorn recipes all have the same method. Just take a bag of microwaved popcorn and empty into a large resealable bag. Mix ingredients in a small bowl. Add ingredients and shake! (Shake your popcorn, shake your head, shake your booty. Have fun with it!)

Southwest Style
1 1⁄2 tsp chili powder
2  tbsp salt

2 tsp parsley leaves
2 tsp basil leaves

Fun fact: Unpopped popcorn kernels are called old maids (I feel like there’s a “Your mama” joke in there somewhere)

4 tbsp Parmesan
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1/4 cup chopped pepperoni

Fun fact: Popcorn has been sold in movie theaters since 1912. It makes money for the theaters because not only does it have a high profit margin, but it usually makes people thirsty, boosting drink sales. The profit margin is so high that for every dollar spent, about ninety cents is profit. (In Fergie style: I got that…I got that popcorn money)
