Have you heard the latest? It's all the rage. It's spicy popcorn.
Rather than buy ancho chile peppers and liquid smoke, I took a shortcut. I used McCormick Grill Mates seasoning mesquite flavor to kick up my popcorn a notch. Emeril would be so proud.
I stocked up on several of the Grill Mates at Kroger when they were free after a coupon. Since I don't eat a lot of meat, it would take forever to use the mixture. Instead, I sprinkled the mesquite flavoring on good old popcorn.
Bet it would taste great on a fresh cob of corn. Maybe I could add it to a creamy salad dressing to perk up vegetable crudite platters. The possibilities are endless.
Here's a list of ingredients:
SPICES (INCLUDING CHILI PEPPER), SALT, GARLIC, ONION, RED BELL PEPPERS, SUGAR, PAPRIKA, SUNFLOWER OIL, CITRIC ACID, NATURAL FLAVORS, AND NATURAL MESQUITE SMOKE FLAVOR
