Popcorn with Chili and Lime

After a light dinner, when you’re still feeling hungry, you can always make a quick batch of popcorn. But sometimes you want more than the usual salty, fluffy, kernels. In these moments, may I suggest, a popcorn that adds a flavorful punch to each bite, a popcorn with chili and lime?! With chili powder, fresh lime, and warm butter, in just 5 minutes, you can make your popcorn go from good to great. I made this buttery, spicy, tangy popcorn and couldn’t stop eating it! Blockbuster night just got better.
