Sometimes my meals just don’t satisfy me. Sometimes, say, on an idle Tuesday, I’m released from class early and I catch a scent from a restaurant on my walk home that instantly makes my stomach grumble and my mouth water. On such a Tuesday, I am likely to return home mysteriously famished, insatiable, and inclined to raid the cabinets.
No longer will I need The Huz to block the kitchen doorway. No longer do I need padlocks on the containers of trail mix. From this day forward, my appetite can be satisfied by a food that takes three shakes and three minutes.
1/3 c. organic popcorn kernels
1/4 tsp vegetable oil (optional)
pinch of salt
3 dashes of chili powder
Frank’s Red Hot (to taste)
Pour popcorn kernels into small brown bag (the type you’d use to pack a school lunch). Drizzle oil over kernels, shaking bag lightly to coat. Add salt and chili powder, shaking to coat. Fold top of bag over 3-4 times and microwave on high for 2.5-3 minutes, or until popping stops. Be prepared for bag to split open (mine did) and to fill a very large mixing bowl full of delicious, spicy popcorn that is sure to satisfy any snack monster. Dress with Frank’s for extra kick.
