Cook the popcorn as per package directions, or as follows: Add the oil to a large, 3 quart or larger pot over medium heat. Add the popcorn kernels and cover, with the lid ajar.
Shake the pot back and forth every few minutes. Remove from the heat when the popping has slowed and most kernels are popped, approximately 7 minutes. Set aside.
When ready to serve, add the remaining ingredients to the popped popcorn. Stir to coat. Add more moisture if needed to get everything to stick with either more hot sauce (if you want it spicier) or more oil. Serve immediately.
It is best to use a neutral oil with no flavor like vegetable or canola oil.Make a large batch of the seasoning to have on hand!Get popcorn kernels here!
