Cut habanero pepper in half (I hold it by the stem not to get it on my hand). In a small saucepan, slowly warm oil and habanero pepper for about 3 minutes. Remove habanero pepper and be sure you get all the seeds out or someone will get a nice HOT surprise.
Pop your popcorn in this oil; most of the popcorn will be hot, but not all.
Tortillas are delicious cooked in this oil; I have even used this in salad dressing. If you like things with a bit of heat this is the way to go.
I tried using jalapenos with no success, it didn't taste very good.
