Superbowl Snacks- A trio of Popcorn

I was looking for something simple and tasty with big impact.  Enter homemade flavored popcorn.  Popcorn is cheap, quick, and easy.  It can be sweet, savory, or spicy.  Stay away from the  microwave stuff.  All you need in a little oil and a  heavy pot over medium heat.  Cover it with some foil with a few holes poked it it to prevent it from going everywhere.  Be careful not to put too many kernels in the pot, it will fill up quickly once they start to pop.  Shake the pot every few minutes to keep it from burning.  Once most the kernels are popped kill the heat and let it finish with the residual heat so nothing burns.  As soon as it is done, while it is still hot, sprinkle on salt and any other flavorings you would like.

This year for the Superbowl I am going for: chipotle lime, garlic onion, and maple walnut.


  1. So how many kernels would you add?

    1. Juan totally depends on the size of your pot, but a 1/4 cup at a time is a good place to start.
