The truth is that I love popcorn ALL the time, but something about Fall brings out the part of me that loves variations on the basic popcorn pop. I don't remember where I got this idea - probably from a Tabasco bottle!
unpopped corn kernels
1 teaspoon Tabasco hot sauce
salt to taste
Pour oil into a pan until the bottom of the pan is completely covered in oil. Add popcorn until the oil is completely covered. Add Tobasco and turn heat to high. When corn begins to pop, shake the pot constantly. When popping slows, remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt to taste.
