Our Firecracker Dust is as versatile as it is delicious. Below, our five favorite ways to put it to use--just in time for the Fourth!
1. Infused into honey
For a homemade hot honey fit for drizzling over everything from fried chicken to pizza to ice cream, heat 1 cup honey + 2 Tbsp. Firecracker Dust in a small saucepan over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes (don't let it come to a boil). Stir in 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
2. As a cocktail rim
Take your margarita or Bloody Mary to the next level with this kicked-up cocktail rim:
Pour a bit of Firecracker Dust onto a small plate.
Coat the rim of each glass with a bit of lemon or lime juice, then dip into seasoning.
3. Sprinkled on Mexican street corn
We love finishing Elote, or Mexican Street Corn, with a liberal sprinkling of Firecracker Dust. Find our recipe for this delectable snack/side here.
4. Stirred into mayo
To make the easiest-ever spicy aioli, stir together 1/2 cup mayo and 2 tsp. Firecracker Dust. Use it as a dip for fries, slather it onto fish or chicken sandwiches, incorporate it into deviled eggs, or add to your next burger.
5. Tossed with popcorn
Add some pep to your popcorn (pepcorn!) game by tossing the popped kernels with a few shakes of Firecracker Dust and a bit of butter or oil.
