White Cheddar Cheese Chili Popcorn

White Cheddar Cheese Chili Popcorn is so good. Made with popped popcorn, white cheddar cheese powder, chili powder and cayenne pepper, it’s all good. I mean, who doesn’t like popcorn! Popcorn has been around since the beginning of time, ( well maybe not that long, but close:)

Still Inexpensive

Popcorn is still one of the most affordable snacks around. A two pound bag of un-popped popcorn kernels runs around $2. One bag will yield a lot of popcorn. This much loved classic has stood the test of time. And with good reason, it’s versitile, meaning you can top it with anything, and let’s face it, there is no way to mess it up. Except maybe to burn it, and some people like that too!
