AtotheRog's recipe for Honey Jalapeno Popcorn is the definition of sweet heat. If you've never made stovetop popcorn, the time has come -- it's a one-pot snack that's ready in minutes and thankfully doesn't require turning the oven on during hot summer nights. A sprinkling of salt at the end turns the popcorn into kettle corn's spicier (and much more enticing) cousin. Note: make sure to de-seed your jalapeno before adding it to the pan, because the seeds can burn very quickly. The easiest method: cut the jalapeno down the middle and scoop out all of the seeds with a spoon. If your taste buds prefer to make up for the loss of heat, toss in a couple of red chili flakes. The end result: a delicious late night snack you won't feel guilty about eating!
My dad made me my first bowl of homemade, in-the-pan popcorn and ever since, it has been my "take to a desert island" snack. I can't live without it. Plain butter and salt is great, but sometimes it's fun to jazz it up and add some fun sweet and savory flavors. The jalapenos add heat and the honey is sweet and light. If I don't have jalapenos around, I'll substitue crushed red pepper. I'll also use agave syrup instead of honey, too. Simple to make, painless clean-up, and easy to enjoy! You'll never want to put a bag in the microwave again!
