Homemade Popcorn with Cilantro Lime Butter

Cilantro Lime Popcorn I The Well Floured Kitchen

I’m a traditional kind of girl.  Popcorn should only be served with generous amounts of butter and salt.  That’s it.  Or so I thought.  My husband had long encouraged the idea of please doing something interesting with our popcorn.  Since he was sweet enough to read the mystery ingredients to me over the phone as I was in the store shopping, it was time to give it a try.

Or perhaps he only shared the ingredients that conveniently worked for this recipe.  Clever. He was as usual correct.  The flavored popcorn was a hit.   Thanks to our mystery dish host Jen for a great list of ingredients.  Check out the rest of this month’s list over at her blog  Yummy Healthy Easy.

Cilantro lime gives the popcorn a wonderful kick.  Kinda reminds me of flavored chips, but without all the unhealthy processing.  Popcorn is one of our favorite inexpensive healthy snacks, I pop it on the stove in a stainless steel popper using a bit of coconut oil.  My absolute favorite organic brand is Eden topped with a bit of grass fed butter and we can indulge uninhibited.

We only have one problem surrounding this popcorn addiction.  The smoke alarm is directly downwind of the stove.  I never burn the popcorn, but something about the cooking process sets that baby off.   Every time, without fail.  It’s now a rather comical process of opening windows and furiously fanning the fire detector.
