Add a generous sprinkle of this to your popcorn, and you’ll have a bold, spicy snack that goes well with a cold beer.  

Sriracha Popcorn

This spicy popcorn is a must-try for sriracha lovers! The iconic rooster sauce adds just the right amount of heat and has a subtle sweetness that complements the savory notes of your favorite snack.

If you love buffalo wings, you’ll love this spicy popcorn seasoning (and so will your guests at your next gathering). Buffalo sauce and ranch go together perfectly — one richer and sharper than your typical hot sauce, the other cool and creamy.

Jalapeno Popcorn

Next up, we’ve got jalapeno popcorn. While not as fiery as some of the other items on our list of hot and spicy popcorn recommendations, it will still satisfy your cravings and is safe to serve during get-togethers like Super Bowl Sunday.

Peri-Peri Popcorn

Bring the heat of African peri-peri sauce to your popcorn! Made with ingredients like crushed chilis, bay leaves, pepper, garlic, lemon, and vinegar, it adds a distinct fiery flavor that’s sure to wake all your senses up. 

Chipotle Cheddar Popcorn

Hot, cheesy, and crunchy? Now that’s a combo that’s hard to beat. Just combine chipotle chili powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and finely grated cheddar cheese, pour the mixture over your popcorn, and toss until it’s evenly coated. That’s it.  

Serve it on game night or during a movie marathon with your friends. 

Chili Lime Popcorn

Enjoy a zesty, zingy treat with chili lime popcorn. The combination of fiery chili and tangy lime turns your popcorn into the best summer snack — something that’s refreshing and bursting with flavor.

To make it, all you need to do is combine chili powder, lime juice, salt, and a dash of sugar, mix them together, and drizzle it over freshly popped popcorn.
