Spicy Popcorn

 

  • Ingredients: 1/2 cup popcorn kernels, 2 Tbsp canola oil, 2 tsp Chili seasoning mix
  • Directions: Place a large pot over the stove and add the canola oil. Turn the heat on the stove to medium. Add the kernels, then place the top on the pot (I keep the lid slightly tilted for steam to escape, then close the lid when I go to shake the pot). Shake often to prevent burning the kernels. Once kernels have popped (or as many as you could get), remove from heat and add the Chili seasoning mix. Shake well, let cool, enjoy!
  • Benefits: A great way to get a serving of whole grain (yes, corn IS a grain and NOT a vegetable). Plus calorically, popcorn is a light food that still satisfies your need for a good crunch. Plus it's cheap. A 2.49 bag of loose yellow kernels will make 27 servings. A serving size is 5 cups popped. You'll have popcorn for days!
