Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

(Pumpkin seeds are also called pepita seeds)

1 cup pumpkin seeds (hull on or off)
2 tsp. olive oil
1 ½ tsp. chili powder or paprika
1 tsp. kosher salt

If you’re using seeds from your jack-o’-lantern, wash thoroughly.

Place seeds in a large pan with a heavy bottom over medium heat. Stir often for about 5 minutes, until the seeds begin to crackle. Remove seeds from heat and stir in olive oil and seasonings.

Cool and serve.
