High Heels & Grills: Ranch Popcorn

Ranch Popcorn

Are you guys ready to learn about our most favorite snack ever? I've been eating this stuff since I was a sophomore in high school and I have loved it ever since. I introduced Zachary to it a couple months after we were married and he was super skeptical at first. After much begging and pleading, he gave in and has joined in my obsession over it. This post isn't so much of a "sharing a recipe" post, but more of a "sharing one awesome, incredibly delicious, and addicting snack" post. Be excited.

Last year, Zachary and I went through every single episode and season of Lost {biggest waste of time, by the way}, and I can probably count on one hand the number sessions of watching it where we didn't have a nice, big bowl of Ranch Popcorn by our side. It's delicious and is probably responsible for the five pounds we each gained in a few week's time. Meh. I'd say it's worth it. Give it a go!

  • 1/2 cup popcorn, unpopped
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) salted butter, melted {I like butter. So, what?}
  • 2-1/2 tsp. Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning{I know you might be tempted to buy something other than the Hidden Valley brand, but trust me, you do not want to do this. This brand is what makes it!}

  1. Pop your popcorn with an air popper into a large bowl. 
  2. Pour the butter evenly over the popcorn, stirring while you do so.
  3. Pour the ranch seasoning evenly over the popcorn as well and mix thouroughly.
  4. Taste the goodness.

Obviously you can put more or less butter and ranch seasoning to your liking, but this is how we like it. Enjoy!
