Chili Lime Pepitas

chili lime pepitas -

Here’s a tasty and simple way to spice up some pepitas/pumpkin seeds. It’s a nice little appetizer, or a snack with your favourite beverage. Vegan, gluten-free and all that!

It’s super simple:

  1. Squeeze some lime onto a bunch of pepitas in a baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle on some salt and Ancho chili powder, or any chili powder that you have on hand.
  3. Throw them in the oven at about 250F for 10-15 minutes, until they get a bit crispy. If you hear them popping you know it’s time to take them out. Just make sure you move them around in their baking dish once or twice through the process.
  4. Yum! Once they are cooled you can store them in an airtight jar for a few days – if they don’t get gobbled up right away!

  1. Hi Kim , Hope you are doing well . Miss you
    Enjoy your Spring Break . I’m sure you are wondering what your new role will be in all this craziness . I would have been providing virtual PE ??
    I am feeling bad for all my friends and colleagues having to face this new challenge upon their return to school.
    Sorry to message you on this site but saw your email and decided to send a note.
    Take care. Hope to see you again soon.
    Love Deb ❤

    1. Hi Deb! Yes, these are strange times. But I’m keeping busy, and also feeling fortunate for all that I have.
      No idea what next week will look like, but we teachers are flexible, right? So we’ll figure out how to make it work.
      Take care!
