Chili Cook Off Popcorn, with 10 Family Netflix Movies We’re Loving Right Now and a Giveaway! 24

Yesterday was awesome. It rained hard and t-ball was canceled so after a really busy day full of field trips and life, we had a much needed family evening. I handed my husband the remote and had him and the kids put together a list of Family Movies currently on Netflix, that we love. Now, pause with me here. Am I saying all of these are appropriate for your 3 year old? No, but look at this list you guys, isn’t it great? Can you please give my hubby and kids a round of applause? Haha…but seriously. It’s awesome when your family can basically write posts for you.

Let’s talk about Parent Trap for a moment.  Doesn’t it bring back good memories? The clicking of the sticks together in the woods. I love that part! My girls have wanted to be all matchy-matchy ever since we watched this!

Here are 10 great family movies currently on Netflix:

I snuggled into the couch with them and as I rested there with my people, I realized I was literally touching my ENTIRE family of 5 at the same time. Squished in between my son and husband, holding hands with my middle girl and our youngest laying on my lap. It was a really happy moment and that friends, is why I think family movies are important. Slow down, put your phone away. Watch the entire thing. Be with your people. 

To go with the movie, we had some family fun creating a popcorn recipe, using this awesome  BPA-Free Silicone Microwave Lekue Popcorn-Popper. I am in love (big time) with this thing. Our kids love popcorn and with this, it’s so easy and inexpensive. 

This recipe is one my husband created and we’re calling it Chili Cook-Off Popcorn, because in all honesty, it tastes just like Chili. It actually reminds me of Chili Cheese Fritos, but way healthier, because hello….it’s made with popcorn, butter-flavored coconut oil and seasonings! Boom!

    All time favorite movie??? That’s a tough one. I don’t think I’ve ever said no to Miss Congeniality. Definitely not a classic, but lots of fun!

  • Traci

    Hmmm favorite movie….I think one of my favorites has to be Elf! We watch it every Christmas.

  • Vanessa

    We love any Disney Movie for family nights. My personal favorite is Moana right now. It’s such a great movie.

  • Karen S

    We love popcorn too–the chili flavoring idea is novel! Fav movie that comes to mind is “Fly Away Home.”
    Thanks for your inspiring and family-centered blog.

    My favorite all time movie is “The Snowman”! I love the music, the voice of the narrator, the beautiful story and illustration!

  • Katja Hunt

    Hmm… Does very six feet under count? I will say, I am enjoying re-watching my childhood favorites with my kids. And popcorn! We are big fans of this chipotle hot sauce/butter/nutritional yeast blend. Looking forward to trying your recipe! Hopefully in a new popper! I still haven’t mastered stove top popping…

  • Jaymie Casey

    Such a hard thing to pick just one movie, but if I had too…Wizard of Oz. I love sharing movies from my childhood with my kids!

  • David

    The first Rocky movie is probably my favorite. I also like westerns. If I am flipping through the channels and see an Audie Murphy or John Wayne movie, I will watch it, even if I have seen it a dozen times.

  • Lani

    My favorite hard to choose! But, i like true stories, so i’m going to pick “Catch me if you can”. That is a great story.

  • Margy Richardson

    I love Family Man! We love popcorn in our family, I think we must pop a bowl almost daily 🙂

  • Jennifer Allen

    My all time favorite movie is Christmas Vacation. We watch it every year after Thanksgiving dinner and then a few dozen more times until Christmas Day. We’ve literally worn out several DVDs. The best part is quoting lines throughout the movie and giggling because it’s so predictable every year who is going to say what!

  • Megan Kramar

    Hmmm… Just one?
    Probably Sense and Sensibility. Or any Jane Austin era movie.
    But really, any movie that gets me, my hubby and the kids cuddling on the couch is all right with me ?

  • Lesly

    I love Chicago, Les Miserables, and Dirty Dancing. I guess I like music(als)! And I love popcorn! ?

  • Teresa Halfacre

    Oh, love the idea of this popper! I was just thinking of trying to find a stovetop one and this seems much better!

    Favorite movie: what’s up doc!

  • Ashley

    All time favorite is hard to pick but I will go with the combo ofFather of the Bride 1 & 2!

  • Sherry Dingman

    Favorite movie? Depends what month. For the month of Feb, Leap Year. For my birthday month, Phantom of the Opera (and that movie is good for cleaning house too) ………….
