Popcorn is probably the most popular snack in our house, and my kids’ minds were blown when I whipped up a batch using something other than the microwave. It is hard to believe, but I found another reason to love my Ninja Foodi!  And for all of you Instant Pot owners out there, this recipe can be made in that too! 

The first couple times we made this popcorn, we just ate it as is.  But then we started to get creative.  Now it has become a challenge.  Who can create the best combinations of flavors?  So far, we have tried Hershey’s syrup, caramel syrup, popcorn balls, taco seasoning, and cinnamon-sugar.  The taco seasoning what a bit out there, but I must say, the possibilities are endless!

And the great thing is, it all starts with just three ingredients and is ready in minutes!  Check out my recipe below and get poppin’!

Ingredients for Instant Pot Popcorn:

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup popcorn seeds
  • 2 tbsp popcorn oil
  • 2 tsp salt

Salt, popcorn kernals, and popcorn oil

How to Make Quick and Easy Popcorn:

It is time to get started.  Put popcorn kernels, oil, and salt in your Instant Pot (or Ninja Foodi).  Stir everything together until the kernels are coated with oil.

Popcorn kernals, popcorn oil, and salt mixed together in the Ninja Foodi.When you begin cooking your popcorn, I suggest you cover it with a clear glass lid.  This helps keep the heat contained but also allows you to see what is going on in there.

Turn your Instant Pot (or Ninja Foodi) to SAUTE in HIGH.  It will take approximately 5 minutes to heat up and start popping.  Allow popcorn to pop until there is 2-3 seconds between pops.  At that point, turn the Instant Pot off.  A few kernels may continue popping for a bit.
