{Stovetop Spicy Buffalo Wing Popcorn}

I made homemade popcorn for the first time and I had no idea how easy it would be! My boyfriend and I came up with a spicy-sweet seasoning blend reminiscent of buffalo chicken wings and it tasted pretty good for a stab in the dark! It would be ideal to grind the spices with a mortar and pestle but if you don't own one not to worry, it'll still taste awesome. Recipe after the break.
Stovetop Spicy Buffalo Wing Popcorn -- so easy to make at home!

Stovetop Spicy Buffalo Wing Popcorn
2 teaspoons Hungarian hot paprika
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (optional)
1/3 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
2 tablespoons oil*
*I used olive oil, but most recipes recommend vegetable or grape seed oil for their high smoke point (aka less chance of burning)
  1. Mix all the dry spices together (grind if you can) and set aside. 
  2. In a pot with a well-fitting lid, add the oil and kernels. Toss to coat the kernels. 
  3. Heat over medium-high heat with the lid on. Now we wait. 
  4. When the first kernel pops, gently shake the pot back and fourth to prevent kernels from burning. 
  5. Remove from heat when popping slows down and give one more good shake to wake up any late poppers. 
  6. Immediately add seasoning spice and distribute evenly while the popcorn is still hot. 

Makes 2-3 servings.
