My boys are obsessed with our air popper. (It’s very similar to this one…we’ve had it since our wedding and use it all the time.)
I think they love the popper because of the anticipation of the popcorn pouring out of the popper. They may or may not have said some inappropriate boys things about the popper peeing out popcorn and such. (Sorry, I live in a house full of testosterone and sometimes I just have to get these obnoxious things they say off my chest!)
This Smoky Popcorn is amazing…it’s super light, uses a smidge of butter so that the spices will stick to the popcorn, and has the perfect balance of salt, smoke and spice. Make this for your next family movie night!
P.S. This could work with bag popcorn or by cooking popcorn on the stovetop. Just add the spices suggested below to your popcorn.
Yield – 8 servings
Preparation Time – 2 minutes
Cooking Time – 5 minutes
- 1/4 cup popping corn
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 tsp black lava salt (or regular salt will work)
- 1/4 tsp ground chipotle powder
- 1/4 tsp ground smoked paprika
- Cook the popcorn in your air popper. You could also choose to cook the popcorn on the stovetop in a teaspoon of coconut oil.
- In a small dish, melt the butter and mix in the remaining spices.
- Stir the butter mixture into the popcorn and enjoy!
