Do you ever just a spiced up snack?? This Mexican popcorn may offer you just that.

Mexican Popcorn
adapted from Jamie Oliver Magazine 
6 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
1/3 cup popcorn kernels OR 1 bag plain microwave popcorn
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
kosher salt
juice from 1/2 lime & zest from 1 lime
If using bagged microwave popcorn: Use a “plain” variety of popcorn and pop in the microwave according to bag instructions. Place popcorn in a big bowl and set aside.
If popping your own popcorn from kernels: Place a 3 quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add 3 tablespoons coconut oil and a 2-3 kernels to the pot. Close the lid and when popcorn kernels start to pop, add the remaining kernels and put the lid back on the pot. Move pot back and forth on the stove and pop the popcorn until you start to hear the popping slow down. Put popcorn in a large bowl and set aside.
For the spice mixture:
In a small saucepan melt remaining 3 tablespoons coconut oil (or butter if you don’t have coconut oil) over medium-high heat. Add the smoked paprika, oregano & cumin to the oil and let sit over heat for 1 minute. Stir in the juice of half a lime and quickly stir mixture onto the popcorn. Season with salt & sprinkle the lime zest throughout the batch of popcorn.
