Chipotle Pepper Popcorn
I was recently reading an article about making traditional popcorn on the stove
, instead of the crappy microwave kind. I definitely love freshly popped popcorn but the other night I decided to spice it up some with chipotle powder and it turned out great.
Just take 1/2 cup of unpopped popcorn kernals and put them into a pot with enough olive oil to coat the bottom and about 1/2 tablespoon of chipotle powder and 1/2 tablespoon of salt. Cover the pot and put it on a burner turned to high, shaking it constantly. In about 60 seconds you'll have a pot full of fluffy, spicy, chipotle flavored popcorn.
You can obviously alter the amount of chipotle powder you use so it will come out with a heat level you like. Many people also recommend using tabasco sauce, especially the chipotle flavor, or using red chili flakes. The possibilities for spicy popcorn are endless!
