Spicy and Sweet Butter Popcorn (two recipes!)
Then make sure you save these two popcorn recipes. The first one is seasoned with butter, Bird’s Eye Chili, and a crack of salt—not your everyday popcorn! Each bite is crunchy and buttery, with just the right amount of spice. Of course, you need something sweet too. We created a spicy but sweet, popcorn flavor that hits the spot. If you like Mexican chocolate, you’ll love this new take on sweet and spicy popcorn.
Spicy and Smoky Grilled Cheese
