Ingredients

For the ranch mix:

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 1 tablespoon dried chives
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup powdered milk

For the popcorn:

  • 1 cup Unpopped corn kernels
  • 2-3 tablespoons Coconut oil
  • Unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled - 5 tablespoons
  • 1/3-1/2 cup Ranch mix

Instructions

Make the ranch mix:

  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk together until combined. Transfer mixture to an
  • airtight, sealed container until ready to use.
  • Makes about 1 cup of ranch mix.
  • Pop your kernels, old school style:
  • Set the heat to medium-high. Add coconut oil to a large pot with a lid. Add the kernels and cover the
  • pot. When you hear the first sound of kernels popping, reduce heat to medium-low and allow the
  • kernels to pop completely.
  • Every minute or so, give the pot a shake to ensure all your kernels have been hit with a heat situation
  • (this will make them all pop).
  • Remove from heat, transfer to a very large bowl and set aside.
  • OR!! If you own a popcorn maker (such as a Whirley Pop) pop your popcorn according to manufacturer’s
  • instructions.

To assemble:

  • In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and ranch mixture. Mix to form a paste. Taste and add more
  • ranch mix as needed.
  • Pour the ranch paste over the popcorn and with clean hands mix to distribute as evenly as you can.
  • Consume immediately.
