Leah’s Party Popcorn
Popcorn is good just about any way, but spicing it up makes it all the more special. I love this recipe because so many people enjoy it. Pile it in bowls for parties or spoon individual portions into sealed bags for take-along treats. —Leah Steenberg, Circle Pines, Minnesota

This was OK, but not really worth it. Not sure if the lemon juice was needed; it gave it a little bit of an odd flavor.

Quick with a nice spicy kick to it.
