Hot & Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

E. Marie

Makes 1 cup

I truly like pumpkin seeds (most all kinds of seeds) ... they are really delicious, and especially good if you get a fresh pumpkin and spice them yourself! These spicy, crunchy seeds are terrific sprinkled on the Pumpkin Lasagne. They are also great by themselves with a nice cocktail.

  • 1 C. fresh pumpkin seeds
  • 2 t. Tabasco Sauce – or any other spicy sauce you prefer
  • 1 t. chili powder
  • 1/2 t. sea salt
  • 1/2 t. ground cumin
  • 1/4 t. cayenne pepper – or to your taste
  • 1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper

In a small bowl, toss the pumpkin seeds with the hot sauce. Combine the chili powder, salt, cumin, cayenne & pepper; sprinkle on seeds and toss to coat. Spread on greased foil-lined 10” x 15” baking pan.

Bake uncovered, at 250 degrees for 45-50 minutes, or until seeds are lightly browned and dry, stirring occasionally. Cool completely, Store in an airtight container.
