Red Hot Chili and Sesame Oil Popcorn

I got a little creative one day and came up with this variation on my favorite snack, and I've made it frequently since. I make this on the stove top in an ordinary pan, but you could use an old-fashioned stove top popper. Don't use a Teflon coated pan or one with a shiny interior that you want to keep pretty.

Ready In:
5mins

Units:

ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 12 cup unpopped popcorn
  • 12 teaspoon red-hot chili oil (or to taste)
  • salt (to taste)

directions

  • Put vegetable and sesame oils in a large pot with a lid, and begin to heat on high heat.
  • When the oil is warmed, but not yet hot, add the unpopped popcorn, and immediately shake red hot chili oil onto the popcorn kernels.
  • Cover the pan and begin shaking immediately, holding the lid down and protecting your hands with potholders. Shake the pan until the popping slows. (I like to slightly raise the pan off the burner, shake the pan in a swirling motion, set it back down, then about two seconds later pick it up and shake it again, and so on.).
  • Transfer the popped corn to a bowl right away and salt to taste.
