- 1/2 cup unpopped corn kernels
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
Place the corn kernels, sugar, oil, chipotle powder and salt in a large kettle or pot with a tight-fitting lid over medium heat. When the corn begins to pop, shake the pot constantly. When the popping slows, remove from the heat and transfer the popped kettle corn to a bowl.
To keep the kettle corn sweet, omit the chipotle powder and adjust the sugar to 1/3 cup.
