Homemade Chili Seasoning Popcorn


"Popcorn as good as the theater's, with a kick! Salty, spicy and a little smoky. All you need is a large pot or metal bowl. I use a large 2 gallon metal bowl. Omit the chili powders if you don't like it spicy."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat canola oil in a large pot over medium-high heat; add 1 popcorn kernel to the hot oil. The oil is ready when the kernel pops.
  2. Pour popcorn kernels into the hot oil; season with half the popcorn salt. Stir to coat. Cover the pot with a sheet of aluminum foil. Poke about 10 holes into the aluminum foil using a knife. Cook popcorn until all the kernels are popped, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove pot from heat; sprinkle popcorn with remaining popcorn salt, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, chipotle chile pepper, and ancho chile pepper. Toss to evenly coat.


  • Partner tip: Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I melted a tiny amount of butter (couple tbsps) and added the seasonings to the butter. I also increased the garlic and onion powder. Delicious and most definetly addictive. Next time, I will do...

The amount of oil for the popcorn was wonderful! I didn't have that oily feeling as I ate it! The heat of this was noticeable, but not overwhelming! I'll be making this again!
