Chipotle Lime Popcorn

Servings 2 servings


  • 6 tablespoons popping corn unpopped
  • Juice of 1 lime approximately 2 tablespoons
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder


  • In a small mixing bowl, mix the chipotle powder and lime juice until fully combined. Set to the side.
  • Over medium heat, warm a frying pan, then add the popping corn kernels. Cover the pan.
  • Continue heating the popcorn covered, shaking the pan every twenty seconds until the corn starts popping, then shake the pan every 5 seconds until the popping slows.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and pour the popcorn into a large bowl.
  • Pour the chipotle lime juice over the popcorn and toss to coat the popcorn. Serve.


Looking for a milder alternative? Try using ancho powder instead of chipotle. It has a smoky sweetness that can pair well with the lime, with much less spiciness.
