  • 1/3 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 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup white popping corn


  1. Melt butter in small sauce pan
  2. Add spices and lime zest
  3. Stir well and turn off heat
  4. Add coconut oil to a large pot
  5. Turn on high heat
  6. Add 3 kernels of corn and wait for one to pop
  7. When kernel pops, add the 1/2 cup of corn to pot
  8. Place lid on pot
  9. Shake pot vigorously as corn pops (2-3 minutes, you may need to turn heat down a little)
  10. 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)

  11. 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
  12. Stop when needed to stir well and then drizzle more until all the butter is gone
  13. Serve!
