Yucatecan Pumpkinseed Dip


Servings: 2cups


1 small white onion, peeled and sliced into rounds

1/4-inch thick 1 3/4 cups (about 8 ounces) pepitas, toasted, salted hulled pumpkinseeds

1/3 of a 15-ounce can diced fire-roasted tomatoes, undrained

1/3 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice

1/3 cup fresh-squeezed lime juice

2 generous tablespoons tahini or (or pulverized, toasted sesame seeds)

2 to 3 teaspoons habanero hot sauce (or a little chopped fresh habanero chile)

2 tablespoons roughly chopped cilantro



Set a large (10-inch) nonstick skillet (or a heavy skillet lined with foil) over medium heat and lay in the onion slices. When the onion is browned and softened on one side (about 4 minutes), turn the slices over and brown the other side (about 4 minutes more). Cool to room temperature, roughly chop them and scoop into a blender or food processor. Add the pumpkin seeds, tomatoes, juices, sesame seeds and hot sauce and process until completely smooth. Stir in the cilantro, then taste and season with salt, usually a scant teaspoon depending on the saltiness of the pumpkin seeds. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with raw jicama, cucumber slices and tortilla chip
