The perfect, easy to make snack for those that like it hot baby!


  • 1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons chili oil
  • 1 teaspoon crushed Mexican chili’s or crushed red pepper (or more if you like it really hot!)
  • Popcorn salt


  1. Follow the directions for the Basic Popcorn in a Pot using chili oil and adding the mexican chili’s to the oil with the popcorn. Sprinkle with popcorn salt after popping


If you don’t have chili oil on hand you can substitute canola or avocado oil.

If you want to make this crazy hot, use super spicy ground peppers.  

FYI, when eating super spicy foods and you want to cool down your mouth from all that heat, don’t drink water!  The water spreads the heat all around your mouth and may even make the burning sensation even worse.  Eat some bread or crackers, they help to absorb most of the spiciness having a party in your mouth.
