  • 1 cup of popcorn kernels
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil (for popping the popcorn)
  • 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup of cooked corn kernels (fresh, canned, or frozen)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika (optional, for a little extra flavor)


  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the popcorn kernels and cover the pot with a lid.
  3. Shake the pot occasionally to ensure even popping and prevent burning.
  4. Once the popping slows down (about 2-3 seconds between pops), remove the pot from heat and transfer the popcorn to a large mixing bowl.
  5. If using fresh or frozen corn, cook it according to package instructions or boil until tender.
  6. Drain any excess water from the corn.
  7. While the popcorn is still warm, sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese over it. Toss well to ensure the cheese melts and coats the popcorn evenly.
  8. Add the cooked corn kernels to the cheesy popcorn mixture.
  9. Sprinkle with salt and paprika (if using), and toss again to combine.
  10. Divide the cheesy corn popcorn mixture into four servings.
  11. Serve immediately while warm and enjoy!
