Kick Up Your Popcorn A Notch

Tired of the same old popcorn? Popping it with an air popper and need a little more flavor, without adding butter? Or are you eating it straight from the bag, but it just needs a little something more to liven it up?

I love popcorn, especially Trader Joe’s Organic Olive Oil Popcorn.  My only pet peeve is that when you get through about 2/3 of the bag, the popcorn is broken into tiny little bits, and no one is interested in finishing the bag.

Give this recipe a try.  It turned the bottom of the bag of popcorn into something that you won’t easily forget.

Whoa Mama, My Mouth’s On Fire Popcorn

Sprinkle a batch of already popped popcorn with a mixture of cayenne pepper, Parmesan cheese and cinnamon.  Go slowly with the cayenne pepper or risk a bit of fire in your mouth.  Next time I will heed my own advice – – whoa, my mouth is still on fire!  You can always add more cayenne pepper, but once it’s added, you can’t take it away.  We started the batch by just adding the cayenne pepper and the Parmesan cheese.  Adding the cinnamon helped balance out the spiciness perfectly.

What are some of your popcorn favorites?

Until my next post, 4 whatever it’s worth…..
