1 bag Healthy 94% fat-free microwave popcorn, popped (12 cups)

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) light butter

2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix

3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Preheat oven to 300°F.

2. Place popped popcorn in a large bowl; remove any unpopped kernels. In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter until melted then stir in taco seasoning mix. Pour mixture over popcorn and toss until evenly coated.

3. Spread out popcorn on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle with the shredded cheese.

4. Bake 6 to 8 minutes, until cheese is melted.

Did you know that popcorn is a whole grain? Whole grains are fiber-rich and heart-healthy, making plain popcorn a good choice for those who want to watch what they eat while still satisfying their crunch-cravings.
