Spicy Sweet Stovetop Popcorn

Spicy Sweet Stovetop Popcorn


"Who knew it was so quick and easy to make excellent gourmet-style popcorn? This recipe produces a very tasty snack. Popcorn was the last thing I used my microwave to cook. Now its retired. This is my personal favorite flavor combo, but you can vary the spices to suit your mood. A favorite combination for movie night with the girls is garlic powder and dried cilantro... Yum!"

  1. Heat the coconut oil, agave nectar, and chipotle powder in a large saucepan or soup pot over medium-high heat. Once the mixture starts to form tiny bubbles, pour in the popcorn, and use a fork to stir it around to coat the kernels. Place the lid on the pan. When the corn starts to pop, shake the pan constantly until the popping stops. Remove from heat, and pour popped corn into a large bowl.

I'm not surprised with the reviews. And I apologize on behalf of this site for those who tried it as posted. The ingredients are WRONG as shown here. I contacted the editors but I guess they couldn't change the recipe in their system. Here's the basic rule of thumb ... you always want to have twice as much coconut oil as you have agave nectar. Otherwise it *will* burn. Those reviews are right if they followed the recipe as posted here. Other oils could be used, but coconut has a very high smoke point and is a very stable oil so it's definitely the best choice for oils.

Added a tsp. of salt. Also, spray pam on your pot before you add the coconut oil--This is one STICKY recipe. This definitely TASTED healthier than movie popcorn, but then again, I like the fatty taste of buttery popcorn. :) Needless to say, this was an...interesting recipe to try, and I might repeat the experience, but only if I feel guilty about eating fatty popcorn again. ;P


I tried this and it burned. It would also stop popping when I took it off the heat to shake it constantly so I would put it back on the heat to get it going and then start shaking again. I was disappointed because I thought it sounded great, a healthier version of kettle corn.
