Expert Tips

In place of a metal bowl, you can also use a deep, covered pot and later transfer the popcorn to a serving bowl.

If you have an air popper, follow the package instructions to prepare the popcorn and add the salt and other seasonings before serving.

Add powdered chocolate to make a sweet-and-salty treat. Also try garnishing with dulce de leche or pieces of caramel to make your own sweet, Latin popcorn mix.

Directions

  • 1 In a metal bowl, combine the oil, kernels and salt. Cover with aluminum foil and poke holes in the top with a knife.
  • 2 Being careful not to burn yourself, use tongs to hold the bowl over medium heat. Shake the bowl constantly for about 3 minutes or until the kernels begin to pop.
  • 3 Remove the aluminum foil and add the honey; mix well. Incorporate the chipotle and chili powder. Set aside.
  • 4 Meanwhile. melt the butter over low heat and drizzle over the popcorn while moving the bowl in circles to evenly distribute. Serve immediately.

Many consider homemade popcorn to be a kind of “super food” because it’s loaded with antioxidants and fiber. Of course, we’re not talking about the pre-packaged kind that’s coated in artificial butter and salt. You’ll see just how easy and fun it is to make popcorn “from scratch.” It’s also budget-friendly! I hope you enjoy this popcorn recipe with Latin seasoning.
