Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Ingredients
  • 5 strips bacon diced
  • 1 large jalapeño minced
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt to taste
  • 2-4 tablespoons melted butter
Instructions
  • Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add in the bacon and cook until bacon starts to get crispy, about 5 minutes. Add in jalapeño and cook 1 minute more.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon and jalapeño from the bacon grease and place in a small mixing bowl. Reserve the bacon grease in the pan for popping the popcorn. Stir jalapeño and bacon together with cream cheese and cheddar cheese.
  • Pour popcorn kernels into pot. Cover and cook over medium heat until popcorn has pops. When popping slows down, remove popcorn from heat. Season with salt and toss with melted butter.
  • Form small cream cheese balls, about the size of a small grape. Drop into popcorn and roll, pressing popcorn into the cream cheese to stick and form a ball. Repeat until all of the cream cheese has been used up.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.

I loooove popcorn! And I also love spicy things so I think I'd love these, even if I had to leave out the bacon 😉

I never would have thought of making a savory popcorn ball. But with bacon, jalapeños, and cheese, these sound incredible!
