2 teaspoons kosher salt

2 teaspoons ground chile powder

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon granulated garlic

Popcorn kernels



  1. To make the spice mix, stir together salt and spices in a sealable plastic bag. Store up to 1 month.
  2. Pop as much corn as you want. While hot, mix well with melted butter (you need butter for spices to stick to corn). In a big bowl or a paper bag, sprinkle spices over buttered popcorn, using about 1 tablespoon mixture for every 4 cups popped corn. Stir or shake to coat well.
