Buffalo Ranch Popcorn From Scratch No Ranch Packet
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 Wings, Fried 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 a small bowl mix garlic, dill, cumin and sea salt. Mix until combined.
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.
Drizzle butter/hot sauce mixture over the top of the popcorn while tossing to coat.
Now toss popcorn with seasoning.
Now try to share with the ones you love but if you don't I already told you I won't judge!
