Making homemade popcorn is healthy and super easy!
Skip the trans fat and chemicals by making your own homemade popcorn. It's actually really easy! This version has a spicy kick from smoked paprika and a dash of chili powder.
Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add 1-2 popcorn kernels to the pot.
Once the first kernel or two pops, pour in the other ½ cup of kernels and cover the pot with a lid.
Shake the pan occasionally as the popcorn pops. Wait until there is >5 seconds between pops and remove from heat.
Melt butter in the microwave. Pour over popped corn and toss to coat.
Sprinkle popcorn with spices and salt and toss again to coat evenly.
