Popcorn Friday: Cajun Corn

Dan has been in the mood for something a little spicy this week. He is the spice lover in the family, not me. This usually means he adds Cholula to his dinner.

But his desire for spicy food inspired a new popcorn flavor - Cajun. Its got a touch of heat but not too spicy for me to enjoy alongside him.

Cajun Corn

Ingredients: * Serves 2
1/8 tsp. paprika
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp. dried oregano
1/8 tsp. dried thyme
1/8 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tbs. canola oil
1/3 c. white popcorn kernels

1. Mix together Cajun seasoning ingredients (paprika - salt) in small bowl.
2. Heat oil in medium pot on medium to medium-high heat.
3. Add popcorn kernels and stir until covered with oil. Stir in seasoning. Cover with lid and without removing from heat, shake pot occasionally.
4. Pop corn until popping slows to near stop. Remove from heat immediately and serve.

Happy Friday friends. I hope you start your weekend off with this tasty snack. Enjoy!
