Spicy Popcorn Recipe – Healthy Snack Option

I know I have told you guys time and time again that I am a snacker. I just can’t seem to make it from meal to meal without munching on something in-between. Which is actually okay since most folks recommend eating every 3 – 4 hours. The trick is finding snacks that are not only tasty, but good for you, and you won’t get bored with.

When is the last time you jazzed up your popcorn? Popcorn (the non way-over-buttered variety) is actually a great snack option. Since I tend to get bored with plain popcorn, I decided to make my own spicy variety! I used bagged popcorn, JOLLY TIME makes a Healthy Pop Butter Pop Corn which works great for this recipe, as it’s a healthier option.
