Spicy Garlicky Popcorn

In an effort to lighten up I love making popcorn for dinner. This is especially nice on a day when lunch was particularly heavy. Such a day presented itself a few days ago. I was looking for a way to make the popcorn a little special compared to the standard microwave popcorn that is super easy.

I air popped the popcorn and then made a yummy garlicky spicy butter. Very satisfying.

Spicy Garlicky Popcorn
Air pop 1 cup of popcorn kernels

3 tbsp butter
1 clove of garlic minced
1/4 tsp finely crushed red pepper flakes
salt to taste (about 1 tbsp)

In a small sauce pan slowly melt the butter on simmer. Once the butter is melted add in the garlic, red pepper, and 1 tsp salt. Simmer on very low to infuse the butter with the garlic for about 2 minutes. Drizzle the garlic butter over the popped popcorn. Toss the popcorn with your hands or utensils to evenly distribute the butter.
