#Superbowl Fun + #Healthy Low-fat #Popcorn #Recipe #PepsivsCoke #CBias

How did you spend your Superbowl Sunday? Better yet, how was the preparations for Superbowl Sunday? Saturday was a busy day. To see my trip to the store to pick up some of my ingredients and the fun I had zooming around the store, check out my Google+ story!

Mmm...all the food for Superbowl, I had made chili for dinner while we watched and then ConAgra's Orville Redenbacher Popcorn for dessert and of course, we had some Coke to keep us cool. Coke has always been a favorite in the family. Why? It just tastes amazing! And I've been known to eat a whole tub of popcorn myself at the theatres so what can I say? I love popcorn and so does the SO. It was great that Orville Redenbacher Popcorn comes in 97% less fat. It was only 240 calories per pop up bag!

Anyhow, here's the recipe for my Smoky Bacon flavored Pecan Popcorn with a fiery zing. It's so simple and so quick to make, it'll be done in under 5 minutes, including your popcorn time but so delish!

Here are the ingredients you'll need:
-Orville Redenbacher SmartPop Popcorn (Use 1/2 of the pop up bag)
-3tsp Bacon Salt
-5tsp Chili Powder (really, add to your tastes)
-1/4 cup Pecans
Your ingredients. Start with 1/4 cup
of Pecans in a bowl or whatever you
want to mix everything in. Double the
recipe to use the entire pop-up Bowl.
Add in 1/2 of the Pop Up Bowl of
Orville Redenbacher SmartPop Popcorn
Sprinkle in ~3tsp of Bacon Salt.
I chose a Low sodium Bacon Salt.
Add in 5tsp of Chili Powder. My SO
likes it hot so I add a lot. Add less if you
need it less spicy. More if you like it hot!
Shake shake shake it up!
Finished! So yummy!

For the sake of keeping my popcorn as low fat as possible, I didn't use any butter or margarine. However, if you'd like more flavor, I'd recommend melting a 1/4 cup of margarine in the microwave and mixing it with the bacon salt and chili powder before drizzling it onto your popcorn mix. Enjoy!
