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 kick!

  • 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 the kernels to a brown paper lunch bag. Fold the edge of the bag over two or three times to seal it.

Microwave on high for approximately 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 the 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, mist with oil spray, and drizzle on the hot sauce. Toss the popcorn to coat evenly. Add your optional cayenne pepper, cajun seasoning, or hot chili flakes for extra spice.

Serving size: 4 to 5 cups popcorn
