Barbecue Popcorn Mix

Spike your next event with the great taste of barbecue! This delicious mix brings two snacking favorites together, and is simple to make. Regular barbecue chips work well, as their “crunch” matches the popcorn. Using “kettle cooked” chips brings a little more variety, and the chips are less likely to break apart when being mixed.


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chili power
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 4 cups lightly crushed barbecue potato chips
  • 12-16 cups of freshly popped popcorn


Melt the butter in a small pan on the stove, and stir in the spices.  Place your freshly popped popcorn in a large container. Slowly drizzle the butter and spice mixture over the popcorn, pausing frequently to toss the mixture. Add in the crushed barbecue chips, and toss lightly to mix everything together.

When serving, keep a stack of napkins nearby. Just like real barbecue, this can be messy!
