Making this homemade seasoning takes no time at all.

  2. You can also add everything to a small bowl and whisk well with a fork.
  3. Then, when you want to top your popcorn, sprinkle a little buffalo wing flavor over top.

How long does popcorn seasoning last?

This recipe will last a few weeks in an air-tight container.

At the very least, check the expiration date on the packet of ranch dressing mix and write it down on the jar you store the spicy popcorn seasoning in. Throw it out before the expiration date.
