Thank you 101 Cookbooks! (click link for recipe). I would have never thought to make this otherwise. I didn’t have any jalapenos on hand, and we are moving in a week so i didn’t want to go buying anything new. I just added a couple of dashes to substitute the spiciness.
Honestly, though, i had a little trouble executing this recipe properly. I think. When i poured the buttery-lime mixture over the bagged popcorn, it got almost immediately absorbed by the pieces on top. When shaking the paper bag, the remaining pieces only got moderately moistened when they brushed against the soggy top pieces. The pepper mixture distributed pretty well. Baking at 350 F for 7 minutes didn’t even come close to drying out the soggy pieces.
My next popcorn endeavor will be salt and vinegar, which i sampled post-race at the Charlottesville Ten Miler this year… Hopefully those won’t be so soggy.
