Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300F degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil or a silicone baking mat (hs note: or unbleached parchment paper). Set aside.
  2. Put the popcorn in a large, clean paper bag or a washable muslin bag.
  3. In a medium-size bowl whisk together the butter, lime juice and zest, and tequila. Add the jalapeno. In a small bowl combine the black pepper, salt, red pepper, and cumin.
  4. Drizzle half of the butter mixture over the popcorn, fold over the top of the bag, and shake until the popcorn is coated and moist. Taste.
  5. Add more of the butter mixture if you like, and give a second shake.
  6. Sprinkle (most of) the pepper mixture over the popcorn, fold over the top of the bag, and shake a few times to coat. Taste, and if you'd like more pepper flavor add the rest of it.
  7. Spread the popcorn evenly over the baking sheet and bake until the popcorn is dry, five to seven minutes.
