14 Days of Popcorn: Chipotle Lime Popcorn

My family loves sweet popcorn, can you tell? That is why I have so many recipes for different flavors of caramel popcorn or kettle corn. But sometimes you need a snack that is not sweet. Salty is good, but spicy is even better! That is why I love this Chipotle Lime Popcorn.

If you are not familiar with the flavor of chipotle peppers, they have a smokey, southwest heat to them. I love the smokey, spicy taste. But when you pair it with lime it’s really something amazing! The citrus helps cut a bit of the heat, but not the flavor. So you end up with all the smokey deliciousness of the chipotle peppers with just enough heat. Of course, if you want lots of heat, you can always add more!

To make this Chipotle Lime Popcorn, I use a chipotle hot sauce. My husband introduced me to El Yucateco Chipotle Hot Sauce a few years back and I love it! It is the perfect chipotle flavor with a good amount of heat. I love adding it to mayonnaise for a quick chipotle mayo for sandwiches. Yum! You can use any chipotle hot sauce you like, but you definitely want the smokey chipotle flavor for this popcorn.

Then you top off the chipotle flavor with a little lime juice, and a whole lot of lime zest. The lime adds a hint of sweet, a little tang, and a really makes the all the flavors pop! You can serve your Chipotle Lime Popcorn with a side of lime wedges so people who want less heat can add a bit more citrus. Or you can serve it with a pitcher of margaritas. Gotta love the lime 🙂
