Appetizer of Pine Nuts, Pecans and Pumpkin Seeds
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Pine nuts (pinons), pecans and pumpkin seeds are indigenous to New Mexico and can be used so many ways for salads, fillings, garnishes, etc.
1 teaspoon unsalted butter
In a large frying pan or saute pan heat the butter and then stir in the nuts and seeds and stir and cook just until the mixture is starting to brown and then stir in the cayenne and cumin. Put the cream cheese on a large serving platter and dump the warm nut mixture over it. Serve with tortilla chips, or even softened warmed flour tortillas for spreading and rolling.
