pumpkin seeds

Categories: Mexican, Pumpkin

Pumpkin seeds are also known as pepitas. These edible seeds are a popular ingredient in Mexican cooking. With their white hull removed, they are a medium-dark green and have a deliciously delicate flavor, which is even better when the seeds are roasted and salted. Pepitas are sold salted, roasted and raw, and with or without hulls.
