Hot Tamales!

Watching the World Cup?  Forget the fat-laden game menu some sites are hawking (bacon waffle on a stick – are they kidding?) Here’s a crunchy, sweet snack with just the right amount of kick (come on, it’s a good pun). Is it authentic Mexican? Well, we’ll leave that up to you, but if you’re cheering for la selección (de México, obviously)everything good is Mexican. Next match? Monday 23 June against Croatia. Vamos, muchachos!

Mexican popcorn

  • 3 cups popcorn
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp icing (confectioner’s) sugar
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp coarse salt

Drizzle popcorn with olive oil, then toss with remaining ingredients.

For a richer version, try the Glazed chocolate variety on Cupcakes & Kale Chips.

Hasta la próxima!
