Chipotle Pumpkin Seeds

Chipotle Pumpkin Seeds

Smoky snacking…

Pumpkins are the vegetable gift that keeps on giving. Not only do you have the delicious pumpkin flesh to partake in for spicy pumpkin pies, you also have those fresh pumpkin seeds that are oh so good for snacking. You can spice up pumpkin seeds in many ways, but one of our faves is via chipotle powder. Roasted chipotle pumpkin seeds have that earthy flavor you expect. Plus that chipotle pepper provides a tasty hint of smokiness along with a very eatable medium heat.

If you don’t have chipotle powder around the house, you can purchase some from our spicery. Or you can opt for using cayenne powder. See a good spicy pumpkin seeds recipe here that will serve. It won’t provide the smokiness, but it doubles down on the spiciness due to the extra heat of cayenne pepper.

jalapeño cheddar popcorn

Jalapeño Cheddar Popcorn

A snack time favorite turned up a notch…

Mixing sharp cheddar flavor with bright and spicy jalapeño pepper is a great way to boost the presence of a snack time favorite. Jalapeño cheddar popcorn won’t overwhelm you on heat (unless you want it to), so this is still a pretty family-friendly cheese popcorn option for movie night or parties. Jalapeño powder may be difficult to buy at your local grocer, but we offer it at our spicery so get ready to add this delicious green powder to your spice rack.

Of course, you can add additional jalapeño powder if you want to boost up that spiciness (or more cheddar cheese powder for some more sharpness), but we let the choice be yours here. If you like this recipe, be sure to check out some of our other spicy popcorn recipes that’ll totally elevate your snack game.

Spicy Peanut Butter Cookies

Spicy Peanut Butter Cookies

Nutty and naughty…

For those that love peanut butter (who’s not raising their hand?), get ready for a cookie evolution. Introducing cayenne pepper to the ever-popular peanut butter cookie is sure to make your taste buds scream and shout. It’s earth and fire, sweet and spice, nutty and naughty all in one.

But cayenne pepper is only one direction you can turn. This is one versatile cookie when it comes to spicy seasonings. You could opt for the extreme – something even fiercer (like habanero powder). Or turn things down a notch or three while adding a hint of smoke (with chipotle or ancho powders). They all work and each brings its own twist to this cookie favorite. Feel free to experiment as the traditional peanut butter cookie is a great canvas from which to play.
