Popcorn is practically a staple food in my house – between me, my husband and our three kids it is a rare night when someone doesn’t decide to make popcorn!  This weekend we had a family movie night featuring spicy Srirach Lime Popcorn.  The popcorn was perfect for enjoying during an action filled science fiction movie!

The popcorn is easy to make using ACT II Butter Lovers’s microwave popcorn as a base.  I have made spicy popcorn before, but this is the first time I have added lime to popcorn and it really gave the popcorn a nice kick, and the mild lime flavor complemented the spicy hot sauce.

Act II Popcorn, Srirach Sauce and Lime for making Spicy Srirach Lime Popcorn

To make the popcorn I melted some butter, stirred in some Green Sriracha sauce, and zested and juiced an entire lime. This made a very tasty topping that I drizzled over the ACT II Popcorn and served.

The popcorn took only a few minutes to make, and I was able to zest and juice the lime while the popcorn popped.  I like easy, no fuss snacks like this for family movie nights! We were all ready to settle in and munch on our snack while we relaxed and enjoyed the movie.
