Chipotle Kettle Corn
Ingredients
1
cup sugar
2
teaspoons salt
2
teaspoons ground cumin
1
teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper
1/3
cup canola oil
2/3
cup popcorn kernels
Directions
  1. In a small bowl combine sugar, salt, cumin and chipotle pepper. Heat the oil in an 8-quart pan over medium-high heat. Add the popcorn and cook, shaking occasionally, 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of the sugar mixture. Cover and cook, shaking often, until popcorn begins to pop. Once popcorn begins to pop, shake continuously until the popping slows. Immediately remove from the heat and carefully pour into a large bowl (popcorn will be very hot).
  2. Place remaining sugar mixture in a shaker jar. Sprinkle some on the popped corn and pass remaining. Makes 16 cups.
