Healthy AND Tasty Recipe - Spicy Cheese Popcorn

This past January, I turned over a new leaf as part of my New Year's resolution and began eating healthier.    As of my last weigh in a couple of months ago, I lost 86 pounds by doing this and feel like a new person.  It's no secret that I love food.  I was born into a Polish-German family that eats heavy, starchy, rich foods and uses food both to celebrate and to comfort. Even though I've changed my eating habits, I still enjoy having snacks as a daily part of my routine.   This is one of those recipes that's great to snack on; occasionally, when I'm not majorly hungry and/or don't feel like cooking after a long day at work, I will sometimes eat this for dinner - no kidding.



Recipe:

*6 cups popcorn popped the old fashioned way - in the pot on the stove or in an air popper.  (NOTE:  I  pop a big pot of popcorn at one time using one tablespoon of oil; this way, you have some to share with others or you have extra that will last you for the next couple of days.)
*2/3 cup shredded low moisture, part skim milk mozzarella cheese or sharp cheddar cheese for extra flavor;
*hot sauce, to taste (I use Tapatio sauce);
*popcorn salt, to taste

Put popcorn in a large bowl; add the rest of the ingredients.  Mix and eat.  Yummy!

By the way, the calorie count for this recipe is just under 300 calories.  Not bad for a satisfying - yet healthy - snack.  Enjoy!
