Fiery Pumpkin Seeds

These spicy seeds will warm you when cooler temperatures come to call. Little ones may find them too hot for their liking.


1 cup (4 servings)


1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds
2 teaspoons Louisiana-style hot sauce
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon pepper


Preheat oven to 250°F (121°C). In a small bowl, toss the pumpkin seeds with hot sauce. Combine the chili powder, salt, cumin, cayenne and pepper; sprinkle over seeds and toss to coat. Spread into a greased foil-lined 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan.

Bake, uncovered, for 45 to 50 minutes or until seeds are lightly browned and dry, stirring occasionally. Cool completely.
