Smoky Sweet Popcorn

I love popcorn…a lot.  I came up with this combination after I discovered smoked paprika a few years ago. Consider this fair warning that this recipe is highly addictive.  This recipe is for a lot so feel free to cut it down for just yourself or a few people…that is if you feel like sharing!

Smoky Sweet Popcorn

6 servings

You could also pop a microwave bag of popcorn and make the same butter mixture for a shortcut version

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 c. popcorn kernels
  • 1/2 stick butter (4 tbsp.)
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. smoked paprika (gotta use smoked!)
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Place oil and popcorn kernels in a large pot with a lid over medium high heat. Shake the pan to move the kernels and prevent burning. Once the popping slows and then stops, remove from the heat.
  2. In a separate bowl melt the butter and add the brown sugar, smoked paprika, chili powder, and salt. Mix together and drizzle over the popcorn. Toss to coat the kernels with the sugary, smoky goodness and serve!
