Now I love nice traditional little butter, little salt popcorn as much as the next person but sometimes it is really nice to just take it up a notch!!
Here’s one of my favorite things to do. In a small sauce pan add:
- a good knob of real butter
- 1 tbsp smokie paprika
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- a few dashes of Chipolte Tabasco Sauce
- 1 tsp salt
Melt that stuff down into the butter till it is all completely liquid.
Meanwhile use your favorite method of making fresh popped popcorn. I just LOVE my whirly pop popcorn popper!!
Dump the popcorn in a bowl and then immediately pour over the melted butter mixture and then toss like a salad, as fast as you can and try to get as much corn coated as you can.
