Ok I’ve got one more snack to share with you for your Super Bowl parties on Sunday, or any party for that matter.
Yes it’s another popcorn recipe, but popcorn is a great snack for parties. It’s easy to make, can be kept at room temperature, and can be made ahead of time. This chipotle brown sugar lime popcorn is for all of you who like a little spicy kick to your food.
If you are not familiar with chipotles, there are smoked jalepeno chile peppers. You can buy them in a can with adobo sauce, which is a smokey sauce, or as a powder. Obviously for the popcorn the powder is going to work best. Chipotles can be pretty hot, so depending on how spicy you like things use a little bit at a time.
For this chipotle brown sugar lime popcorn I used a 1/2 teaspoon of chipotle powder (I would do 1/4 teaspoon if you don’t like things quite so spicy), 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of salt, a teaspoon of brown sugar, a teaspoon of lime zest, juice of half a small lime, and a tablespoon of butter. In a small saucepan I melted the butter and then added the rest of the ingredients and whisked them together. I then poured the butter mixture over my air popped popcorn. I tossed it all together until all the pieces were coated in this spicy, sweet, tangy mix. It was delicious! It will be perfect for grabbing handfuls of during the big game! Below are some other ideas for appetizers, soups, main dishes, and dessert you might want to serve at your Super Bowl party this weekend.
