VICKIE’S SPICY POPCORN RECIPE
When I was growing up, a couple times a week, Dad would pop corn in his favorite popcorn stove-top skillet. He’d slice an apple and some cheddar cheese and fan them out on a plate, serve up bowls of popcorn and that that would be our evening snack while watching television.
Oh popcorn. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
How about Vickie’s way. While my Whirley Pop Popcorn Maker was popping it’s usual perfect batch on the stove top, in a small bowl I mixed:
Add some heat to your next popcorn night.
- 3 tablespoons canola oil
- 1/2 cup popcorn
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder any flavor will do
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Mix spices in a small bowl.
Melt butter in microwave, about 30 seconds.
Over medium high heat on the stovetop, combine canola oil and popcorn in Whirly Pop Pop Corn Maker. Give it a good swirl then wait for the corn to start popping and then start turning the Whirly Pop handle. Lower heat slightly and pop corn until the last kernels are popped.
Remove from heat and pour into a large popcorn bowl.
After the Whirley Pop has done it's job, transfer popcorn to large bowl, sprinkle with salt, cover with a dinner plate and gently shake. Add melted butter, cover again and gently shake. Pour in spicy mix from above and cover and shake again.
A delicious and snappy snack…or, grab a glass of wine and have it for dinner? (Vickie’s suggestion) 🙂
