I am a huge fan of the sweet and spicy combination. This recipe combines one of my favorites – kettle corn, with a little bit of a spicy added in for that extra kick. The spicy flavors aren’t overwhelming (you can always add in more chili powder if you like things really spicy), but I kept it so that there was just a hint of something extra in the background.This popcorn was addictive…even the kids loved it!!
Here’s how you make it. All you need is some vegetable oil, sugar, chili powder and popcorn.
Here’s the important part: Start shaking the pan. You’ll want to shake it the entire time so that the popcorn and the sugar doesn’t burn. Keep shaking, and after a few minutes, you’ll hear the popcorn start to pop. When the popping has slowed to every 2 or 3 seconds, pour the popcorn into a large bowl. Let it cool, and stir occasionally to break up any large chunks.
