Sriracha Ranch Popcorn

Let me tell you about my new favorite snack: Sriracha Ranch Popcorn! It is spicy, spicy, spicy! Sriracha Ranch Popcorn Recipe // Legal Miss Sunshine

I love stove-popped popcorn. I think it’s because I love salty snacks and popcorn is such a great, easy-to-make snack that doesn’t have a ton of calories and totally satisfies my salt tooth. Salt Tooth? Can we make that a phrase? Anyhow, I don’t eat popcorn with butter, usually just with salt, but my new favorite topping is Sriracha Ranch! Sriracha Ranch Popcorn Recipe // Legal Miss SunshineSriracha Ranch Popcorn Recipe // Legal Miss Sunshine

Since I’m a spicy wimp, I only use a small amount of Sriracha. If you make this and you like a lot of spice, feel free to double the recipe and add more Sriracha.Sriracha Ranch Popcorn Recipe // Legal Miss SunshineSriracha-Ranch-Popcorn-Recipe-Legal-Miss-Sunshine-2 copy

Sriracha Ranch Popcorn
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12 cups popcorn
Sriracha Ranch Popcorn
  • ½ cup Unpopped Popcorn (yields about 12 cups popped popcorn)
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil (or enough vegetable oil to lightly cover the bottom of your pot)
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Sriracha
  • 1 tsp Dry Ranch Mix
  • Pinch Salt
  1. Pop your popcorn on the stovetop: I add the vegetable oil to the bottom of the bottom, add 3 kernels, and once those three have popped, I add the rest of the unpopped kernels and continuously stir or shake the pop to prevent burning until popping slows down.
  2. While waiting for the popping to start, mix together your olive oil, Sriracha, and ranch mix in a small bowl.
  3. Add your popped popcorn to a bowl, lightly drizzle a couple spoonfuls of olive oil/Sriracha mix over the popcorn and carefully mix.
  4. Continue until you run out of Sriracha mix.
  5. Lightly salt.
  6. Enjoy!
