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.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons coconut, canola or peanut oil
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels

    Meanwhile. melt the butter over low heat and drizzle over the popcorn while moving the bowl in circles to evenly distribute. Serve immediately.

  • 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.
