- 1/2 cup unpopped corn kernels
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
Place popcorn, sugar, oil, chipotle and salt in a large kettle or pot with a tight fitting lid over medium heat. When corn begins to pop, shake the pot constantly. When popping slows, remove from heat and transfer popped kettle corn to a bowl.
To keep the kettle corn sweet, omit the chipotle powder and adjust sugar to 1/3 cup.
