DIY Chili Lime Popcorn

We love popcorn around here and eat it instead of chips most of the time. Most often I either just add sea salt or cheese powder, but sometimes I like to add different seasonings to change things up a bit.

I recently saw this idea for Chili Lime Popcorn over here and it sounded so good that I made up a big batch the other day. I actually didn't really follow any recipe, just sprinkled stove popped popcorn liberally with sea salt, chili powder, and lots of lime zest (like several tablespoons). This was sooooo good and quite different from our usual flavors. Everyone loved it! In fact we all ate so much we called it lunch.

Homemade Chili Lime Popcorn Recipe

  • Popped popcorn (I popped mine on the stove in some sunflower seed oil)
  • Zest from some limes (I recently discovered what I think are actually key limes here, more on this later, and I used several tablespoons of the zest from a bunch of those tiny little guys that were still under ripe and very green)
  • Chili powder
  • Sea salt
Once your popcorn is popped begin sprinkling on seasonings, stopping to stir and taste until desired flavored combination is reached. Enjoy!
