Popcorn is my all-time favorite snack. Late at night (when I’m not supposed to be eating) I can resist the temptation for nearly anything else. Yet if Lt. Dan asks if I want some popcorn, I cave instantly without thinking.

Because of this clear-cut addiction, we have numerous popcorn recipes we fall back on evening after evening.

Tex Mex Popcorn is high on the list.

Not only does it offer the buttery crunch of classic stove-top popcorn, it is loaded with tex mex spices, sun dried tomatoes, crumbled chorizo, salty queso fresco and cool creamy avocado.

There are so many amazing flavors and textures working together here, it’s like a fiesta in your mouth.

The addition of all these extra goodies, not only provides intense south of the boarder panache, it makes this popcorn recipe a meal, of sorts.

Of course it’s intended to be a snack… but I would certainly be happy to sit down with a bowl of this popcorn around 6ish in the evening, and not need anything else the rest of the night.

Just saying.

  • Place the oil and popcorn kernels in a large heavy bottomed stock pot. Cover, leaving the lid slightly offset to vent, and turn on medium heat. Listen to the popcorn. Once the popping stops, remove from the heat immediately and pour into a large bowl, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile prepare all other toppings.
  • Mix the salt and spices together in a small bowl. Shake the larger bowl of popcorn while pouring the melted butter and spice blend over the top. Shake until thoroughly coated, then toss in the sun dried tomatoes.
  • Scoop the popcorn into smaller serving bowls and top each bowl with crumbled chorizo, queso fresco, and diced avocado. Serve immediately!
