Chili Lime Popcorn

Did you know you can make popcorn easily on your stove?  Just put the kernels and some oil in a pot with a lid, keep your heat down to medium-low, and you’ll have better-than-microwave popcorn!

Mr. KitchenOperas and I are big popcorn fans.  We’ll make a big bowl in the evenings, and munch away to cop dramas or action movies.  When we first had the Chili/Lime combination on popcorn at one of our favourite bars, we just couldn’t stop eating it.  So I had to try figure it out at home, and it’s been a house staple ever since.

When I served this to our friend (and Best Man) Shaun, he exclaimed: “you made this?!?!” — so you know it’s good.

Now all you have to do is pick the movie!

Chili Lime Popcorn
Serves 2.

  • 1/4 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil (olive, grapeseed, or coconut oils work well!)
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1-2 teaspoons chili flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan with a lid, heat the oil & popcorn kernels together over medium-low heat, covered with a lid.  After a couple of minutes, the popcorn will start to “pop”.  Shake the pot a few times while the popcorn is popping.  Once the popping slows down to about 3 seconds between pops, turn off the heat.

Dump the popcorn out into a large bowl, and sprinkle with the lime juice, salt, and chili flakes.  Toss to coat the popcorn with the seasonings.

Eat warm, and enjoy!
