Gone in 60 seconds. No, not the movie. This Cheetos popcorn snack. Like that, poof. Gone. Popcorn needed Cheetos. Cheetos needed popcorn. It’s a marriage made in heaven. Perfect for a big crowd, too. Just have some napkins on hand because there are going to be some orange fingers. And if you’re like me, you’re also going to have an orange keyboard and mouse.

They Should Sell This In Stores

There are a lot of ways to customize this snack if that’s your thing. For your friends that like spicy foods I’d add a few good-sized pinches of cayenne pepper to the cheese powder mixture. And instead of ‘normal’ Cheetos I’d use the Flamin’ Hot flavored snacks.

You can substitute any popcorn you’d like, even pre-popped. Or microwaved. Even flavored will be fine, but you might have to cut back on the seasoned salt. You can always mix a small amount of Cheetos and popcorn in a bowl, season and see if you like the combination.

Also try my caramel crunchy Cheetos or my colorful Skittles popcorn!
