This popcorn recipe was inspired by the popcorn served at Kirkpatrick Choir parties at Rutgers University in the late '80's and early '90's. It was hot off the stovetop and home-spiced with layers of different chili pepper varieties. This recipe is appropriate for vegans and those with dairy allergies. The olive oil replaces the fat in a healthy way, and the nutritional yeast provides the buttery flavor. This dish is always a hit with my friends and family. The secret is in adding each ingredient separately and tossing between each addition. You can make it mild or spicy depending upon the type of chili powder you choose.
