1 ½ cups popcorn kernels
4 tbsp olive oil

Combine the cayenne pepper, sweet paprika and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.

Place a large saucepan over a medium heat, add 2tbsp olive oil and the popcorn kernels. Ensure you have a tight fitting lid on.

Wait until you begin to hear the popcorn kernels popping and give the saucepan a gentle shake. Continue to cook until you hear the kernels are all popped. Remove from the heat.

Add the remaining olive oil and spice mixture and stir to combine.
