    Darcie Kelly's Note:

    This recipe is for the person who likes everything spicy hot!! I learned about this trick from a coworker who is a hot food freak! The spicy oil can be used for a varitiey of foods; different types of oils can be used as well. Peanut oil is the best overall choice, since it withstands higher temperatures.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 habanero (choose size depending on how spicy you want it)
    • 2 -3 tablespoons vegetable oil or 2 -3 tablespoons peanut oil
    • 1/2 cup popcorn

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put the vegetable or peanut oil in a pot suitable for popping corn.
    2. 2
      Warm the oil gently and place sliced habanero in the oil (be careful to wash your hands after handling, and don't touch your eyes or nose!) Stir occasionally for 3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Be careful not to heat the oil too much; the smoke from the oil will cause your lungs and eyes to burn.
    4. 4
      Remove the sliced habanero from the oil and discard.
    5. 5
      Pop your popcorn like you normally would in the spicy oil.
    6. 6
      Add your favorite popcorn condiments, such as melted butter, salt, cheese flavoring, or my favorite, butter flavored sprinkles, and enjoy!

      Makes you go:why didn't I think if this! I used a small red chili pepper and I loved it! I added some paprika and garlic powder to it, no butter. Thanks for posting!

      This was AWEOME!! Makes me wonder why I never thought of this! LOL. I used 2 habaneros and boy was the popcorn ever spicy! Both of my kids thought it was awesome too. My DH wouldn't touch it tho. He' not a big fan of habaneros. But that's another story. More for us! I added parmesan cheese to ours. This has so much flavor, it doesn't need much butter, if any at all. Thanks for sharing. :)
