When I saw this contest with only two entries I thought if I could come up with three entries I would have my best chance of winning a contest.  

Well most people like butter on their popcorn and hot wing sauce is hot sauce with butter so why not try it.

1/4 cup butter

How to make Buffalo style hot popcorn

Pop the corn I used half a cup which makes about a gallon of popcorn.
Place the chips in a zip lock bag and lightly brake them up.
Mix the chips and pop corn save the zip lock bag for storing the popcorn

In small saucepan, melt butter with hot sauce, celery seed and salt.
Pour over popcorn-corn chips mixture, tossing gently to coat.

This next step I skip. I think it makes the popcorn stale but it might be important for some reason.

Spread on 15 x 10 inch baking sheet. (could also be left in the metal bowl)
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
Remove from baking sheet to large serving bowl.
Serve immediately or store in airtight container.

Step 3: Ready the Popcorn

Pour over popcorn-corn chips mixture, tossing gently to coat.

Note: do not substitute celery salt their is already enough salt in this.

That being said i like the salt. In fact my brothers would get me to make popcorn (because i was the only one who would not burn it) and they would hide the salt shaker so i would not over salt it.

Step 5: Combine the Sauce and Popcorn

Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
Remove from baking sheet to large serving bowl.

Serve immediately or store in airtight container (like the bag you crushed the chips in).
