Recipe inspired by Australian Macadamias.

This is the best popcorn I have ever had! I love this recipe idea from Australian Macadamias. It´s perfect for your next gathering- keep recipe handy as your guests will surely be asking you for it. 

Macadamias have a rich buttery flavor and when combined with chili, lime and a little sweetness- this popcorn recipe is mouthwatering.
