Spicy Pumpkin Seeds


 1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds, cleaned & dried
3 jalapeño peppers, sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil
sea salt and paprika, to taste


Preheat the oven to 180°C

Spread pumpkin seeds out on a rimmed baking sheet.

Add olive oil and sea salt and stir pumpkin seeds with your hands to combine.

Lay slices of jalapeño peppers on top of seeds.

Sprinkle paprika over the top of everything, generously.

Bake for 10 minutes.

Use a spatula to move the seeds and peppers around. Bake for another 5 minutes.

Move mixture around some more and bake for a final 5 minutes.

Remove tray from oven and let everything rest for 15-30 minutes to let the jalapeño-ness soak into the seeds.

Store in an airtight container.
