Buffalo Ranch Popcorn From Scratch No Ranch Packet

Buffalo-Ranch-Popcorn-From-Scratch-No-Ranch-Packet.jpg
Oh my dear deliciousness! All I can say is this was an amazing snack! The husband and I scarfed the bowl and had to make more to share with the kids! 
I know we've all discussed my hot wing habit before and now I have even moved on to popcorn! I have made Baked Hot WingsFried Hot Wings and  Boneless Hot Wings.
I kept seeing Buffalo Ranch Popcorn on Pinterest but they all seemed to use a Ranch packet for seasoning. Problem number one I never have a Ranch packet.
Problem number two have you read the back of the Ranch packet ingredients? First MSG or aka Monosodium Glutamate, I don't know about you but for me I'm not into that. Maltodextrin, google it, what's really the point of adding this to ranch? 
We'll just call it good there or I could ramble on all day! 
But guess what friends I solved your problem! Homemade Buffalo Ranch Popcorn simply from scratch! Oh yes you heard me right no ranch packet here! The best part is this is actually a fairly healthy snack considering there's only 4 tablespoons of butter and then you share the popcorn with say 4 or 5 people. Oh  and did I mention popcorn is super high in fiber, super cheap and low in calories? Score!  
 If you happen to need 1 more reason to make this it's serious man food ladies and your husband will think he's gone to heaven if he's a popcorn/hot wing kind of guy!

In another bowl melt 4 tablespoons of butter (if you want to add more I won't judge but we found the flavoring just right for us) and 2 teaspoons hot sauce (if you like it hotter feel free to add more). Mix together well.
