¼ cup popcorn kernels

2 tablespoons olive oil

Paper lunch bag

2 teaspoons curry powder

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 teaspoon popcorn or ½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon fresh chives, finely chopped

Toss the popcorn and olive oil together in a small bowl and transfer to a paper bag. Tightly fold bag over two times to seal. Place bag in microwave and heat on high for 2-3 minutes or until there are 3 seconds between pops.

While still hot, pour the popcorn into a large resealable bag, adding all remaining ingredients except for chives. Seal the bag and shake well to coat the popcorn with the spices. Pour from the bag into a serving bowl. Let cool and top with chives before serving.
