Roasted Chili Lime Pumpkin Seeds

Roasted Chili Lime Pumpkin Seeds - Girl NestingPumpkin guts are kinda gross, but the seeds have the potential to become a great healthy fall snack! That’s why we never throw away pumpkin seeds in this house.

I gathered my favorite spices and made Roasted Chili Lime Pumpkin Seeds. So yummy on a fall evening like tonight and incredibly easy / quick to make.

**This would be the perfect snack for a Halloween party ;).**

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup of pumpkin seeds (*dried overnight from pumpkin carving)
  2. 1 tbsp of Olive Oil
  3. 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  4. 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  5. 1/4 tsp of Cayenne Pepper
  6. 1 tsp Salt
  7. 1/2 fresh Lime juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl combine ingredients with pumpkin seeds. Mix well. Line a baking sheet with tin foil, spread pumpkin seeds in mixture evenly on pan. Bake for 25 minutes, tossing often so they don't burn (a little burnt is still yummy though in my opinion ;)
Notes
  1. *After pumpkin carving, rinse pumpkin seeds and spread over a baking pan. Lightly pat dry with a paper towel. Allow to dry overnight so they are no longer slimy.
