Spicy Popcorn

Popcorn is just about the easiest snack to make at home. Put out a bowl of this spicy popcorn and it will be gone in minutes.

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6 cups

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup white popping corn
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon Essence
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan

Directions

  • For the popcorn: In a large, partially covered saucepan heat olive oil and 1 piece of popping corn until hot enough to make the corn pop. Add the remaining popping corn and cook partially covered, shaking, until all corn is popped. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and toss with the remaining ingredients until evenly coated.

  • Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
