Directions

Line 2 large sheet trays with waxed paper and set aside. Melt butter in a medium pot over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, curry powder, El Diente and salt. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Continue to boil and do not stir for 4 min. Remove pot from heat and carefully stir in vanilla and baking soda until well combined. Place popcorn in a large oiled bowl. Working quickly, pour hot caramel over popcorn and use a spoon to coat evenly. Transfer to reserved sheet trays and spread out in an even layer. Set aside to cool completely. Store leftover popcorn in airtight containers or zip top food storage bags.
