Expert Tips

  • Pumpkin seeds, called pepitas, are popular in Mexican cooking. With their white hulls removed, pepitas are a medium-green color. They are delicious roasted and salted, as in this recipe. Try sprinkling them on salads for a new nutty crunch. Pepitas are sold unhulled, hulled, raw, or roasted and salted. Look for them in supermarkets near the nuts as well as in health food stores and Mexican markets.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
