  • 6-8 cups stove-popped popcorn (we used ⅓ cup popcorn and 3 Tbsp. olive oil)

  • 1½-2 cups Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, blitzed into powder in the food processor


  1. Empty the popcorn into a large bowl.
  2. Melt butter in a cool to warm pan.
  3. Add the butter to the popcorn, stirring well with a large spoon.
  4. Sprinkle ⅓ of the Cheeto powder over the popcorn, and mix with a large spoon. Repeat, adding ⅓ of the mixture at a time and stirring after each.
  5. Add salt to taste.
