Trying a search on your site gives me a message that it is not secure,
so I am resorting to emailing you to find a lost recipe.
This recipe is called Holiday Popcorn. It was in the 1980s that I remember
making & eating it. It was tomato powder based (most likely a soup mix)
with spices (I'm guessing basil, oregano & maybe onion powder?).
We would put the seasoning & popcorn into a paper bag and shake it.
It would come out beautifully red and very tasty.
If you could find it for me, it would be much appreciated. I will also
continue to keep looking on my own.
Of course, the first thing that I did was to go to my site and do a search for "Holiday Popcorn" using the search engine at the top of every page. I got zero results because there is no "Holiday Popcorn" recipe on my site, but neither did I get a message that "this site is not secure". The search worked perfectly well, and I have had no other complaints about it from anyone else.
If you get the warning message that you describe, it must be something on your end - on your internet server if not on your own computer. Perhaps something like an anti-malware software.
As you can imagine, a general Google internet search for "Holiday Popcorn" gives dozens of results, most of which are sweet - candy or chocolate coatings for the popcorn. Attempting to narrow the search using terms like "savory" or "spicy" did not result in a recipe that matches your description. Searching for "holiday popcorn" with the qualifiers "tomato", "basil", and "oregano", brought a few results, but none calling for "tomato soup mix" or "tomato powder". I also searched using "savory popcorn" and "spicy popcorn as recipe names. Still no results.
The only recipe that I can find that calls for "tomato powder" is not named "Holiday Popcorn", but is named "Bloody Mary Popcorn." It is the closest recipe that I can find to your description. See: Bloody Mary Popcorn
There are a lot of spicy/savory popcorn recipes on the internet. See these sites:

I will post this on my site. Perhaps one of my readers knows of the "Holiday Popcorn" recipe.

Thank you so much! You are awesome.
I found the recipe I was looking for (but it was not online).
Here is the recipe for your readers:
1 cup melted butter
1 pkg tomato soup mix
2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp oregano
1 1/2 tsp onion salt
1 tsp garlic salt
Shake with popcorn in a paper bag.
For those who don't have access to the powdered tomato soup mix, you could
try using tomato powder, which I plan to make from tomato skins when I
process my tomatoes this fall. Adjust seasonings or add more as desired.
Dill could be a tasty addition!
