I got this from my barber Gil. He learned to love Tabasco sauce when he was in the service and got this recipe from a bar in Arkansas that asked him if he wanted "Arkansas-style" when he asked for a bowl of popcorn. His family and friends ask him to make it whenever they come over for game night.
- Good quality un-popped corn kernels (Orville Redenbacher kernels)
- Good popcorn popping oil (Orville Redenbacher's Popping & Topping Oil)
- 6-8 healthy dashes of Tabasco hot sauce (about a 1 teaspoon, I should think)
- Salt to taste
Pour oil and Tabasco hot sauce into a pan until the bottom of the pan is completely covered in oil. Add popcorn until the oil is completely covered and turn heat to high. When corn begins to pop, shake the pot constantly (or use a Stovetop Popcorn Popper). When popping slows, remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt to taste.
