Spicy Pepitas

pepitas

This is a recipe for making a traditional Mexican spicy snack using pepitas verdes (green pumpkin seed kernels).  The pepitas are tossed with a mixture of lime juice, ancho powder, cayenne, cumin and salt.

You can make the same snack using whole pumpkin seeds but you'll need a longer baking time.
