Have you heard of Sriracha? It seems like it's all the rage right now, even though it seems to have been around forever. Anyway, people are coming up with many tasty and creative ways to utilize this Chinese hot sauce, and in my opinion, the more the merrier!
So my husband and I usually have popcorn once a week for dinner. Now, I am not talking about a single serving snack popcorn, I'm talking about a big bowl of homemade popcorn. We purchased a popcorn popper a few years ago and have definitely made the most of it. What is that you say....You don't have one? Go to your nearest Target/Walmart (or don'g get up, just go to amazon.com) and pick one up asap! They are so easy to use, and the popcorn is 100 times better than what comes out of those little microwave bags. I think our popper was $25, and popcorn seeds are super cheap too...like $3 for a huge bag, that you will use at least 10 times before they need to be replenished.
Anyway, back to the Sriracha. A couple of my friends have recently and frequently mentioned that they love hot sauce on popcorn. Well, my husband loves hot sauce, and I like it enough, so I decided to give it a try. I think most of them use Frank's Red Hot (which I am sure is delicious, too), but I have this whole bottle of Sriracha and I want to use it up!
So this is relatively easy to make....
1. Pop the popcorn (or use a bag if you don't want to really pop the corn, but it's super easy even to pop it on the stove top in a big pot!). You want about 6 cups of popped corn.
2. In a small sauce pot heat Heat 1 tablespoon Sriracha, 1 Tbsp. butter, and 1 Tbsp. olive oi
3. Put the popcorn in a bowl, then drizzle the Sriracha sauce on top and toss around in the bowl. Season with salt if desired. Done and done.
I have one little tidbit for you though, I thought it was a bit too spicy, but my husband really liked it. I found a quick solution to be to mix half of the Sriracha Popcorn with half of the normal buttered popcorn. This was PERFECT for me.
Hot sauce is delicious on popcorn, so I'm sure Sriracha is AMAZING. I'm definitely going to have to try this!
You know I can't get enough of Sriracha popcorn! I usually just put it directly on the popcorn though and shake it all up. I'll have to try it like this!
Made it tonight - delicious! I did end up added like two or three extra tablespoons of Sriracha though...I have a problem, lol.
You are crazy girl!
