Toasted Pepitas

 A great soup, salad or baked potato topping. Also great on top of cheese enchiladas.

  • 1/2 cup raw hulled green pumpkin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground chile de arbol or other hot red chile
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3  tablespoons fresh lime or lemon juice  


  1. Mix juice with spices until well combined.
  2. Mix pumpkin seeds with oil.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  4. Add seeds and toss frequently until seeds begin to turn light golden and expand.
  5. Add chile-lime mixture and stir until seeds are well coated.
  6. Remove from heat and allow pepitas to cool.

Cook’s Notes: Orange or pineapple juice also works for a sweeter finish.
