Spicy Pepitas


Looking for a different recipe for those pumpkin seeds, I developed this recipe a few years ago and it’s a keeper!

Spicy Pepitas
2 cups pepitas raw hulled green pumpkin seeds (Trader Joe’s)
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsps. lime juice
1 tsp salt
2 to 3 Tbls. olive oil

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Toss all ingredients together in a bowl. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes, stir the seeds and continue to bake for 5 more minutes, remove and salt again.
