Who doesn’t love unwinding on a Friday night with a terrific movie and a great big bowl of fluffy popcorn? If you’re a spicy chick like me you’ll love this jazzed up version…with a fiery kick! You can make your own air-popped popcorn in the microwave or save yourself some time and use a light store-bought brand

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 serving
  • • ¼ cup popcorn kernels
  • • 1 tablespoon hot sauce
  • • Cayenne pepper, red chili flakes, or cajun seasoning (optional)

Add kernels to a brown paper lunch bag. Fold edge of bag over 2 or 3 times to seal it. Microwave on high ~2 minutes, or until popping slows to 2 seconds between pops. Note: microwave time will vary depending on the power of your microwave, so you may need a few trial runs to figure out perfect popping time for your microwave. (Alternatively, you can use 4 cups of any brand of light store-bought popcorn.)

Pour the popcorn in a bowl and drizzle on the hot sauce. Toss the popcorn to coat evenly. Then, sprinkle on optional cayenne pepper, cajun seasoning, or hot chili flakes for extra heat.
