Sriracha Lime Popcorn

What could be more addictively delicious than freshly popped popcorn? How about freshly popped popcorn drizzled with real butter and tossed with Vanns Spices’ spicy-sweet-tangy Sriracha Lime Seasoning?

Sriracha Lime Popcorn

This recipe gives you the Sriracha flavor you know and love without the worry of soggy popcorn. If you have Sriracha Lime Seasoning in your pantry, (and you should!), you probably already have all of these ingredients on hand, ready to whip up a batch for your next movie night, or for the next time you’re in the mood for a crunchy, spicy snack. This is something you can make in under 20 minutes, but I can’t guarantee it will last that long once you put the bowl out on the table.

Spices used in this recipe

Sriracha Lime Seasoning
Salt, Kosher



  1. Pop the popcorn kernels with whatever method you prefer -- you should end up with about 8 cups of popped kernels. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a large bowl, drizzle the popcorn with 1 Tbs. of the melted butter at a time, tossing with your hands in between drizzles. Sprinkle with Sriracha Lime Seasoning and toss to coat evenly. Add kosher salt to taste and serve. It’s best eaten the same day, but you can store the popcorn overnight in a sealed bag or container.

Makes 8 cups.
