Sriracha Popcorn

This weekend I had friends visiting from out of town and while they were here I made one of my go to snacks: sriracha popcorn. They had never had, nor ever heard of such a thing and ask how it was made: these are the detailed instructions for a spicy and salty snack.

Ingredients:

The ingredients for sriracha popcorn are simple:
popcorn kernels,
butter,
salt,
and the star sriracha.

The first step is to mix about a tablespoon of butter with half to a full tablespoon of sriracha, depending on how spicy you like it.

Melt the butter with the sriracha. Microwave for 30 seconds in two 15 second burst should do the trick.DSC00255

But remember microwaving butter has a tendency to explode. Cover with care.

Once its all melted, stir together until the fluid is consistent.

Step 2: the popcorn

The next step is the popcorn. You may prepare this as you prefer, plain unseasoned popcorn is what we’re after. The simplest method I’ve found is just adding popcorn kernels to a brown paper lunch bag and microwave.

Here I’ve used around 4 tablespoons.

Fold the edge of the bag over to make sure no popcorn escapes.

I put it in horizontally.

I pushed the popcorn button on my microwave. But it comes out to about two and a half minutes.
