From App to Snack: Jalapeno Popper Popcorn

Posted by on December 11 2012 in Bacon, Cheese, Featured, Pig, Recipe

Fried foods aren’t really my bag.  They smell, look and sound good..but they leave me feeling kinda crappy.  Am I alone in this?

Well, I decided to remake an often-craved fried food in a slightly-better-for-you snack. Yep—I put the flavors of a jalapeno popper in my popcorn.

It happened and boy, am I glad it did.

Also, this popcorn has bacon.  Do you need any more convincing to make this?  I think not.

Jalapeno Popper Popcorn

serves 2

1/4 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
1 paper lunch sack
1/4 cup of light butter
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
3 tbsp breadcrumbs (I used Italian flavored)
3 tbsp crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup of chopped (cooked) bacon (about 3 strips)

Pour your kernels in the lunch sack and fold it down twice. Place the bag in the microwave and cook for 2 minutes or until there is like 10 seconds between pops.  You can skip this step and just make a premade bag of popcorn, if you like.

Melt the butter in a small ramekin (in the microwave) and add in the diced jalapenos.  Spread your cooked popcorn on a sprayed cookie sheet and pour about half of the butter/jalapeno mixture evenly over the kernels. Sprinkle salt and the breadcrumbs over that.

Bake at 350 for 6-7 minutes.

Cook your bacon in the other half of the butter/jalapeno mixture. Then chop it.

Toss the popcorn, bacon and goat cheese in a large bowl and toss it around to mix.  Add more salt if desired.
