I am not done with Cinco De Mayo just yet. I just had to squeeze in one more recipe: Chili Lime Popcorn! This popcorn is made the way we made popcorn when I was a kid, on the cooktop with real, natural ingredients. No rancid oils, no genetically modified corn, no toxic plastic microwave bags. Just real corn, real butter from grass fed cows and flavorful spices.(This post contains affiliate links. I may make a commission off sales but your price remains the same.)
Making popcorn on the cooktop is easy. You simply add a few tablespoons of coconut oil to a big pot and heat. Add a few kernels of corn and wait for the first one to pop. Then you add the rest of the corn, cover the pot with a lid and shake that pot vigorously until the kernels stop popping. Then drizzle with melted butter infused with lime zest, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and sea salt! Of course you can adjust the spices to your preference. Such a delicious and healthy treat when made with top notch ingredients!
The Recipe: Stovetop Chili Lime Popcorn!
What you will need: Coconut Oil, a big pot with a lid, popcorn kernels (preferably NON GMO like these), good sea salt (I like Maldons) You will need a microplane to zest the lime. Find my other popcorn recipes here, here and here.
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- zest of one lime
- 3 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/2 cup white popcorn
Melt butter in small sauce pan
Add spices and lime zest
Stir well and turn off heat
Add coconut oil to a large pot
Turn on high heat
Add 3 kernels of corn and wait for one to pop
When kernel pops, add the 1/2 cup of corn to pot
Place lid on pot
Shake pot vigorously as corn pops (2-3 minutes, you may need to turn heat down a little)
When corn stops popping turn off heat and remove lid, allow a few minutes for popcorn to cool (otherwise it will shrink when butter is added)
Whisk butter well (spices tend to sit on the bottom) and use a knife to stir popcorn as you slowly drizzle spiced butter over corn
Stop when needed to stir well and then drizzle more until all the butter is gone
