Happy Weekend!

PEPPERONI POPCORN WITH ROASTED WASABI EDAMAME

The trend toward getting back to basics prompted me to start playing around with good, old-fashioned, economical popcorn. Here’s a grown-up twist on this crowd-pleasing standby. If you’re making this for kids or would like less heat, omit the wasabi edamame or replace them with toasted pumpkin seeds. Either way, this easily prepared snack is the perfect accompaniment to beer and a ballgame!

INGREDIENTS

3 ounces thinly sliced pepperoni, each slice cut in half

15 cups salted popped popcorn

1 cup dry roasted wasabi edamame

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

DIRECTIONS

In two batches, microwave the pepperoni on High on a paper towel-lined microwave-safe plate in 30-second intervals until dry and crisp, about 1 minute. Toss in a large bowl with the remaining ingredients.
