How to use A&B American Style: American Style Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

American Style Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Halloween has come and gone. If you’re wondering what to do with the leftover pumpkins sitting around your mantle, read on. Don’t worry, these aren’t pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds; we’re sure those exist elsewhere. These roasted pumpkin seeds made with our NYC Rooftop Pepper Sauce (seasonal, so it's like our version of the PSL) are insanely good and turned out so well they didn’t last long in the serving bowl.

A&B American Style Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Get rid of the pumpkin guts
    • Put the seeds in a colander and rinse under cold water, dry them
    • If you want to get into the nitty-gritty (and have a little extra time), we hear boiling the seeds before roasting is the way to go. The Manly Housekeeper conducted a four-way test and said, “[Pre-cooking in boiling water] makes the seeds much crunchier, leads to a more “roast-y” tasting seed, and seasons the seeds better.”
  2. In a bowl, toss the pumpkin seeds with oil, A&B American Style NYC Rooftop Pepper Sauce, and Worcestershire sauce
  3. Combine salt, cumin, garlic powder, and chili powder; sprinkle over seeds and toss to coat
  4. Spread onto a foil-lined baking pan
  5. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring halfway through baking
  6. Store in an airtight container (if somehow, you have any left)

 

When you're done, they should look like this:

How to Use A&B American Style: Foundational Chicken Wings

It’s hard to believe we make hot pepper sauce and have not yet put up a recipe for chicken wings.

That changes now.

We like to keep things simple at A&B American Style, so here are the foundational elements of chicken wings:
1) wings 2) heat 3) sauce.

Once you lay the foundation, there are thousands of ways to personalize it to your taste. This fundamental recipe is paleo/clean eating-friendly and as simple as they come.

Foundational Chicken Wings with A&B American Style Pepper Sauce

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Season chicken wings with salt and pepper
  2. Add heat
    • Grilling: Heat grill to medium-high heat (375-425°F). Lightly oil grill to prevent sticking. Grill wings for 20-25 minutes turning a few times
    • Baking: Preheat oven to 400°F. Line rimmed baking sheet with foil and top with wire rack. Bake wings in a single layer on the wire rack for 45-50 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking
  3. Near the end of cooking, combine melted butter and A&B American Style Original Pepper Sauce
  4. Once wings are fully cooked, toss them in with sauce
  5. Optionally, put them back on the grill for a couple of minutes to cook the sauce in
  6. Serve with traditional and untraditional sides and more Pepper Sauce
  7. Beers are not paleo, but you are stronger willed than we if you leave them in the fridge

That’s it. Minimal skill required. Minimal cleanup. 

Now that you’ve got the base down, check out a few ways to change things up:

  • Want to make your wings extra juicy? Start by marinating them in buttermilk. While it’s not paleo, this will help them stay moist on the grill
  • Want spicier wings? Try this recipe for Jerk Chicken Wings. Save your hands the trouble of working with fresh habaneros. We capture their essence beautifully in A&B American Style More Heat Pepper Sauce. Substitute in ½ cup of sauce
  • Looking for even more flavor? Check out Juli Bauer’s Sticky Sesame Teriyaki Chicken Wings over at Nom Nom Paleo. The recipe requires some work, but you can simplify it by using A&B American Style With Garlic Pepper Sauce (which is paleo) instead of making your own sriracha (which takes time)
