Pepitas Calientes Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
- 1 cup (225 g) raw, shelled pumpkin seeds
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons chili garlic paste
- 1 teaspoon Splenda
- 1 teaspoon lime juice
Heat a medium-size heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the pumpkin seeds and dry-fry them for a few minutes, stirring constantly.
After a little while, you'll see them swell a bit and become a bit plumper.
This means they're just about done.
Stir in the garlic powder, salt, chili garlic paste, Splenda, and lime juice, making sure all the seeds are well coated.
Continue to stir over heat until they dry and then serve hot.
