Homemade Sweet and Spicy BBQ Popcorn Recipe
Popcorn is one of my favorite snacks to have at home. I find it healthier than the junk foods available at the market, so I make sure I always have some stocked in my pantry. This snack can perfectly absorb any flavors you choose to add to it.
I used to buy popcorn flavor seasonings like barbecue, cheese, and sour cream. Most of these flavored mixes are affordable but don't suit my tastes. Some are too salty, while others are too sweet or spicy. Eventually, I came up with my own recipe for sweet and spicy barbecue popcorn flavoring using simple ingredients commonly found in the average pantry. Try it and enjoy!
