Popcorn is the ultimate movie night snack for families. Popping your own kernels at home is better than buying pre-popped and packaged popcorn, as it gives you more control over the ingredients (and the kilojoules) that go into the toppings. This spicy popcorn is just one great example. It’s a great recipe for those who like a bit of heat!

- Stir in 1 teaspoon of Tabasco sauce.
- In a small cup, mix together 1 teaspoon of paprika, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, ½ a teaspoon of salt and ½ a teaspoon of pepper.
