Guaje seeds are small and are eaten raw with guacamole or cooked and made into a sauce or fritters.
The ground seeds are used to impart a slightly garlicy flavor to a mole (sauce) called guaxmole (huaxmole).
The dried seeds may be toasted and salted and eaten as a snack referred to as "cacalas". Come to think of it, I saw it in a snack mix once in a bar in Guadalajara.
