Homemade Buffalo Chipotle Popcorn

What did the baby corn say to the mama corn? Where's popcorn? *snicker*

This weekend was the very first time since being an eyeglasses owner that I lost my own glasses.  They just vanished out of nowhere.  I started thinking, well maybe I put them somewhere weird, like the fridge or the dryer.  Nope.  Then the furniture moving began.  Nope.  Checking the car ended in tears. The restaurants all think I'm crazy now.  I started to wonder if since this is the first week I had the windows open in while, maybe some cat burglar came in through the glass door and stole my glasses just to mess with me.  Um, probably not.

Finally, I gave in and bought three (yes THREE) pairs of glasses.  To be fair, one is a pair of sunglasses (which I'm totally stoked about because they are polarized lenses!!) and another pair of regular glasses were given free.  So really I'm not crazy... right?

Now I can watch movies again!  But what's a Summer flick without popcorn?  I can eat a whole bowl of popcorn on my own- however the spicier I make it, the more dear hubby eats which means less calories on my hips.  Here's my secret Buffalo Chipotle popcorn recipe for all those movie and popcorn lovers out there:


1/3 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
1 tsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp melted Olivio or butter or margarine or I can't Believe it's Not Butter, etc (30 secs in the micro should do it)
1 Tbsp Tobasco sauce
4-5 shakes of my favorite Chipotle seasoning mix


  1. Heat popcorn popper and put coconut oil in popper.
  2. When fully heated and oil is melted, put in kernels and let fully pop.
  3. While popping the corn, melt the butter.
  4. Mix tobasco into melted butter.
  5. When popcorn is ready, shake the Chipotle seasoning on popcorn and shake the bowl to coat popcorn evenly.
  6. Pour butter tobasco mixture over popcorn and shake to mix.

Pick your favorite movie and sit back with your snuggly buddy and a big bowl of Buffalo Chipotle popcorn!

  1. I needed a little popcorn humor this morning, lol. Looking lovely in your specks, I have at least 3 pairs now because my disappear at will too. My daughter is a huge popcorn fan and she likes adding different spices to hers, I will have to tell her about your tasty additions. Hope you are having a great week.

  2. Lol:) My mouth is watering right now. I love spiced popcorn. But with a spicy flavor then it's even better. Yum, thanks for sharing.
