Ingredients

1/4 cup popcorn

2 teaspoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon popcorn salt* or kosher salt

Sprinkle Chile Powder (Ancho, Chipotle, New Mexican, Jalapeno, Cayenne)

Paper lunch bag

Stapler

Directions

Toss the popcorn with the olive oil, salt, and chile powder in the paper bag. Fold the top of the bag over and staple the bag twice to close. Place the bag in the microwave and microwave on high for 2 minutes to 3 minutes, or until there are about 5 seconds between pops.

NOTE: Popcorn salt is a super-fine salt that is designed especially for sticking to food such as popcorn. It has the taste of regular table salt, but its granules are much finer. The staples will not pose a problem in the microwave.
