Heat Things Up with an Inferno-Inspired Sweet & Spicy Popcorn Snack

We've got a recipe that'll melt the warm the ever-brooding Dante Pertuz!

We're a little over a week away from the premiere of "Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors" premiering on both Disney Channel and Disney XD on Sunday, September 30.

To get you prepared for the upcoming premiere, we've got a sweet & spicy Inferno-inspired recipe to heat things up for you. In "Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors," Tyler Posey voices Dante Pertuz AKA Inferno, a brooding, dark loner on the run. Dante has the power of pyrokinesis, which makes him capable of generating flames – however, he is not fully in control of his fiery abilities. It’s a thin line between good guy and villain for the unpredictable Inferno.

Our resident snack expert Jenn Fujikawa (@justjenn) is back with a recipe sure to lure Dante out of his loner tendencies.

In the animated film, “Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors,” powered teens Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno join forces as an unlikely, but formidable crew of aspiring heroes. When a threat no one could have expected bears down on the Marvel Universe, this ragtag, untrained band of teens have no choice but to rise together and prove to the world that sometimes the difference between a “hero” and “misfit” is just in the name.
