I've made these for the past 3 years now! (When my husband and I share), friends and family will bring pumpkins to our home so we will make them some more! We are addicted!

We have a garden and have gotten lots of pumpkins. This recipe is super easy and definitely spicy. My husband and I love spicy so I will be making this again.

These are best with big pumpkin seeds if you can find them. Some people eat the whole seed. I just eat the inside.

very flavorful, nicely spicy. Hard to stop eating them. I had to cook them a bit longer and raised the temp some to get them nicely roasted and dry.
