Serious Eats had an article on Fun Topping for Popcorn and Buffalo Wings flavor was one that stuck out. Do you like buffalo wings? Do you like hot sauce? You’ll like this. David always adds some hot sauce to his popcorn and I thought he was crazy but once I tried it, I ate my words. In this recipe, hot sauce is combined with butter, giving the popcorn a luscious, spicy twang. Once you try it, you won’t think of popcorn in the same way again.
