Mexican Popcorn
Health Highlights


1/3 cup Popcorn, unpopped kernels
4 tbsp Coconut oil
1/2 tsp Paprika, smoked
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Coriander, ground
1/2 tsp Chili powder
1/2 tsp Oregano, dried
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
1 dash Cayenne pepper (optional)
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 whole lime(s) Lime peel (zest)
1/2 whole lime(s) Lime juice (fresh)


1. Heat 1 Tbsp coconut oil on high, in medium-sized pot, with a couple of corn kernels inside and the lid on. When you hear the kernels POP, add the remaining kernels, place lid on pot and gently move pot back and fourth over burner. As kernels begin to pop shake back-and-forth a bit more vigorously. When kernels start slowing down remove from heat. When popping finished transfer to a large bowl.

2. With the pot still warm on the burner, but with the heat off, melt the remaining 3 Tablespoons of coconut oil. Squeeze in the lime juice. Combine the spices together as a mixture.

3. Grate the lime zest into the popcorn. Then drizzle the coconut oil mixture in, followed by the spice mixture. (You may not want to add the entire spice mixture at first.) Combine everything really well with you hands. Season with more sea salt or spices, if necessary.
