I really like a good plain potato chip. And not the ruffles have ridges kind. Just thin and crispy. I’m also a risk-taker, an explorer, someone who likes to live on the edge*; so I occasionally grab a bag of barbecue-flavored potato chips and really live life to the fullest.
How they get the smokey, BBQ sauce taste of summer into each chip has always been a food chemical mystery to me. So with a little experimenting I knocked it out of the park with spices I had in the cupboard. It makes the most amazing popcorn…for those adventurers out there!
*All descriptions of me in that sentence were exaggerations.
Awesome BBQ flavor is the perfect pairing for buttery popcorn.
