Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

3 cups raw pumpkin seeds
2 tbsp butter
1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp sea salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper

Recipe Directions for Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.

  2. In a bowl, toss the pumpkin seeds with the melted oil, chili powder, sea salt and cayenne pepper;

  3. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes.
