I caught Flynn just waiting so patiently and totally eyeing our popcorn- He’s the cutest.

But, here’s the super easy super fast recipe for Red Chile Popcorn

*we pop our popcorn on the stove or with an air popper

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset


1/2 cup of popcorn or 1 bag microwave popcorn

1 Tablespoon of olive oil (if cooking on stove)

1 Tablespoon of melted butter

Seasonings; salt, pepper, red chile powder, garlic (you can season as heavy or has light as you like)


Once your popcorn is popped melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, once melted add as much as the spices as you like. Stir to combine and then pour over pop corn. I like to put half the popcorn into a bowl and then add half the butter, pour the rest of the popcorn and then the rest of the butter. I also sprinkle a little bit more salt and red chile powder on top to add a little bit more flavor.

And… done!

We are enjoying it tonight while we finish up some wrapping and watching Netflix and clearly even the dog is jealous!
