Fall Blog Hop: Pumpkin Queso Dip

 I’m a pumpkin lover. I actually eat pumpkin all year round and not just during the fall. But, when fall hits, I start adding pumpkin to just about everything {like cookies, dips, french toast and even hummus}. My most recent pumpkin tinkering came when I was making a queso dip for an upcoming fall party. Usually I just make my world’s best queso dip {seriously, that is not an exaggeration} but I wanted to try something new. So, I made pumpkin queso dip instead.

Adding pumpkin to make pumpkin queso dip is the best idea ever.

The best part, besides the pumpkin, about this dip is that it only takes 5 ingredients to make. It comes together so quickly and easily that it is the perfect last minute party recipe.

What You’ll Need:

1 Tbsp butter
1/3 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
10 oz nacho cheese dip
1 cup pumpkin

Let’s Make It:

1) In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add bell pepper and onion and cook for about 5 minutes, or until softened.

2) Stir in nacho cheese dip and pumpkin. Reduce heat and cook for 5-10 minutes or until heated through. Do not boil.

I served this dip with some crackers, chips and fresh vegetables and it was a total hit. The pumpkin added the perfect amount of creaminess to the dip but didn’t add any sweetness at all. Plus, this way, I am sneaking some healthy vegetables into our party snacks.

This pumpkin queso dip is such a creative way to sneak in vegetables to party food! This pumpkin queso dip is THE BEST party dip I've had all year. Yum! I can't wait to make this pumpkin queso dip for our next party. It is the perfect fall party food recipe.
How do you sneak in vegetables for your family? Do you add pumpkin to a lot of different recipes once fall hits?
