Cool Ranch Popcorn is a fun twist on plain popcorn. You'll find it hard to stop snacking on this scrumptious treat.

If there are two things I love, Cool Ranch Doritos and popcorn top the list.

Okay, maybe not at the very very top, but under family and faith and all that good stuff, these two guys are trailing close behind. Of course these days, I try to watch what I eat (key word being try…) so I’m not stuffing my face with all the Cool Ranch Doritos that I would like to.

Momma’s got some post-baby belly jiggle that needs a one-way ticket to anywhere but here.

But popcorn will always have a place in my life. Obviously. Naturally, this Cool Ranch Popcorn was a no-brainer. Insanely easy to make and full of outrageous flavor. No weird blue colored specks either. As much as I love the chips, those blue specks always kind of weird me out.

Not that I think I’m eating something all-natural when I’m chowing down Doritos, but do they have to be so obvious about it?

Enjoy the popcorn! You could even share with friends, but I’d totally understand if you didn’t.

Also, don't forget to try my Homemade Wheat Thins Recipe! More fun Southwestern flavor you can make at home.
