Great flavorful snacks while sitting next to the glow of the fire? Count us in! We’re making fresh homemade popcorn over the fire pit with one simple tool and just a few ingredients. Of course, you could stick with plain buttered popcorn or pair butter with a bit of salt if that’s your preference. For us? We’re spicing things up a notch with popcorn coated in taco seasoning and a touch of lime zest added to the mixture for a zesty citrus kick.

Equipment

Bonfire 2.0, Popcorn Maker

Ingredients

1/3 cup white popcorn kernels

3 tablespoons canola oil

3 tablespoons salted butter, melted

3 teaspoons taco seasoning

Zest of one lime

1/2 teaspoon salt, or more to taste

Step 1: Build a Fire

Build a fire in your Solo Stove fire pit. Start by burning 3-4 logs, allowing them to reduce down just about to a low to medium rolling flame with hot coals.

Step 2: Prep the popcorn kernels

Pour the oil into the popcorn maker. Add the kernels and toss to combine.

Step 3: Pop the popcorn

Holding the long handle of the popcorn maker, place the popper over the fire pit, two to three inches above the flame ring. Hold the popcorn maker over the heat until you hear the oil sizzle and the first kernel pop. Gently shake the popcorn maker over the heat until the kernels have popped.

Step 4: Season the popcorn

Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl. Drizzle with melted butter and top with taco seasoning, lime zest, and salt to taste. Mix with your hands or a large spatula to coat before digging in.
