Spice Things Up with Jalapeno Popcorn

Popcorn is one of the most popular snacks in the world. Gone are the days where popcorn's only topping was a drizzle of butter and a dash of salt. Jalapeño popcorn is a spicy twist on an old classic. Cheap, easy-to-make and certainly delicious, jalapeño popcorn is perfect for those who crave a zestier, spicier snack. The following includes an easy-to-follow recipe for jalapeño seasoning.

Jalapeño Seasoning Recipe

Ingredients You Will Need:
8 cups of popped corn
3 tablespoons of jalapeno chili powder
4 teaspoons of garlic powder
1 tablespoon of onion powder
2 teaspoons of ground Mexican oregano
2 teaspoons of finely ground black pepper
1 teaspoon of ground rosemary
½ teaspoon of ground aniseed
1 to 3 tablespoons of salt

Pour the jalapeño, garlic and onion powder into a bowl. Mix the powder together until fully blended. Add the oregano, pepper, rosemary and aniseed. Mix until blended. Add salt (the amount is dependent on your preferences). It's recommended that there be no more than three tablespoons of salt and no less than one tablespoon. Stir until the ingredients are fully blended.

If you aren't going to be adding your jalapeño seasoning to your popcorn immediately, be sure to store your seasoning in an airtight container at room temperature. Pop your popcorn and add to your own specifications.

Some people like to add even more ingredients to their jalapeño popcorn seasoning. For example, you might enjoy a cheesy flavor along with the spice of the jalapeños.
