What You Will Need for Jalapeno Pumpkin Chia Seed Wontons:
Chia seeds are a popular healthy ingredient right now in recipes popping up all over the internet. They deserve the popularity because they contain omega 3 and 6 fatty acids (great for vegetarians!), calcium, and soluble dietary fiber. According to the package of Chia seeds I have in my pantry, they are an Aztec superfood with a form of protein that is easily digestible. Many people add them to smoothies, salads, pudding, oatmeal, and muffins or bread recipes.
I’ve always loved roasting pumpkin seeds after we carve pumpkins for Halloween each fall, a family favorite at my house! My family of five gobbles them all up within about 1-2 days. Pumpkin seeds are so delicious and roasting them is so much fun!
I love how they are available for purchase in the stores all year round too. We enjoy them as a snack to munch on. I use Good Sense® brand honey roasted pumpkin seeds for this recipe (or roasted and salted). They are a good source of protein and iron. A great snack or addition to a meal for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
