    Great Twist on a Dip

    Carrie C from Belleville, WI

    Really, really good. Like the 'kick' the jalapeno juice and jalapenos give it. Pumpkin gives it a lighter taste vs. taco dip. I prefer to spread out dip on a 12" serving platter, adn added extra veggies to cover the top (olives, onions, tomatoes).

    Good to the last bite

    Alison Jamieson from ,

    Encouraged by other reviews I made this to take to a party. The dish was scraped clean and everyone raved about it. The pumpkin flavour was not as strong as I expected, just creamy & good. And as for anyone out there who doesn't like olives, don't leave them out. I made a small portion without and found that their saltiness balances the other flavours out.

    Awesome party food

    CAITLIN UGUCCIONI from TALLAHASSEE, FL

    We made this for our annual anniversary party and everyone loved it! There wasn't an ounce left. Best recipe I've gotten from this site.

    Great dip!

    ELIZABETH BLOCKER from Louisville, KY

    Fixed this for an outing. Someone asked me what kind of cheese it was and no one could believe it was pumpkin. It disappeared. Next time I will add a little more jalepeno because I like a little more kick.

    party raves!

    susan larsen from ACUSHNET, MA

    Everyone at our party last week loved this dip. We used fat free sour cream and light cream cheese and served it with blue corn chips. People appreciated that not only was it delicious-it's good for you!

    amazing

    Shannon Hartman from SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY

    I made this for a church group last night and didn't let them know the secret ingredient....they loved it and it was a smash hit. The only thing I did different was I had a fiesta dip made with sour cream already made and used that. They couldn't believe it was pumpkin. What a great way to add "good" stuff to everyday foods. Thanks

    Layered Pumpkin Dip

    Joan Randall from CAPE CORAL, FL

    What a nice twist on a layered dip. It was healthy and not too salty. As a personal touch, I'll use fresh chillies the next time I make it.

    Piquant Pumpkin!

    Jan Wilkins from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    Our monthly supper club held a "dip contest". This was my contribution. No one could believe it was pumpkin! Did I win? Actually, I didn't enter since I have been a professional cook....they don't let me enter contests! But everyone did agree it was great & nearly everyone wanted the recipe.

    Vanessa Bechtol from NAPOLEON, OH

    This was excellent! The red onion was a bit strong; I'd probably opt to use sweet onions if available.

    Great Flavor

    LESLI FIELDS from DENTON, TX

    I made this dip and took it to a church party. I got lots of comments on how wonderful it was, and everyone was surprised that the main ingredient was pumpkin. Everyone thought it was a cheese dip, but wondered why it was so creamy and smooth!

    Ruth Minsk-Whitehead from OCALA, FL

    I liked it but felt it was missing something. Maybe some chilies or taco seasoning, but will definitely try it again

  •  Star(s)

    Delicious!!!

    John Lyne from NORWELL, MA

    The pumpkin (I call it the secret ingredient) really makes this dip special. My family loved it. I would definitely make this again!

    Just made it today

    Robin G.B. from Mexico City, Mexico

    I am not fond of bean dips because I don't care for cold beans. And believe it or not, people don't eat bean dips in Mexico -- at least not in the central part of the country where I live. Anyway, I made *this* dip today and it's great! Much lighter on the stomach than a bean dip. I think I will add very finely chopped lettuce to the leftovers tomorrow, to add an extra texture nicety.

    Let Down

    Kasandra Kokes from PASADENA, TX

    I was really excited about making this dip, but was let down when I served it. I took it to a poker game, where it was passed over for the guacamole. Only 1/4 was eaten. Something just wasn't right. The next day I topped it with shredded colby cheese and took it to a Game 4 Astros v. Atlanta Braves party (Yea Astros)And it was almost finished. Next time I think I'll mix taco seasoning w/the chilis and sour cream layer.

  •  Star(s)

    Awesome

    K Blackwell from NC

    Loved this. Took it to a dinner party and it was gone before I could blink my eyes. Recommend refridgerating over night and then topping with stuff to give flavors plenty of time to mix and mellow out.

    Layered Monterey Pumpkin Dip

    Pat Hadley from Houston, TX 77002

    WOW!!! I don't know who came up with this idea, but it is delicious. My husband and I survived Hurricane Rita this past weekend and decided to have a Rita-Margarita and some of this dip to celebrate. I must say, I used fresh jalapeno instead of juice and sliced ones from a can. We really enjoyed the dip with baked tortilla chips. It's a keeper.

    Oh So Good

    Jeannette Thomas from MISSISSAUGA, ON

    Made this dip for my husband and a group of guys that have been meeting every week for 25 yrs. They could not get enough of it. Used yogurt in place of Sour Cream. Excellent results. Definite make again and again.

    Cathy Sullivan from DARNESTOWN, MD

    This is easy to make and a big hit with everyone. No one could believe it had pumpkin in it and when they found out they ate even more of the dip. It was a great recipe for the Super Bowl party.

    YUMMMMMMM!

    Christa Dyck from Sacramento, CA

    This was really tasty! To make it a bit lower calories, I used fat free cream cheese instead of reduced fat. I also used plain fat free yogurt instead of sour cream. Both substitutions worked just fine and it tasted great!

    Odd as it may sound, this recipe is out of this world!To further lower the fat, I serve with baked tortilla chips. Every time I take this to a potluck, the entire dish is gone!Folks are amazed this recipe is made with Pumpkin!

    It's low carb too!

    ANDREA EVANS from DENVER, CO

    I made this for the Super Bowl last year and it was a big hit. One comment was how spicy it was, almost too much for some. Next time I might not use all 3 T of Jalepeno juice, maybe cut that in half. Since it is made with pumpkin and not refried beans like so many mexican layer dips it is even low in carbs! Use veggies or low carb chips and you've got a great nutritional snack all the way around.

    DELICIOUS DIP

    SHARRON DANIEL from HUMBLE, TX

    I MADE THIS DIP FOR MY MOTHER TO TAKE TO HER JOB FOR A POTLUCK. I USED REGULAR SOUR CREAM AND CREAM CHEESE AND IT TURNED OUT WONDERFUL. MY FAMILY REALLY ENJOYED IT AND THEY HAVE REQUESTED IT FOR CHRISTMAS. I WOULD DEFINITELY MAKE THIS DIP AGAIN.

    a pleasant surprise

    Paula Mason from OKLAHOMA CITY, OK

    Good--and unusual--dip

    Heather Carberry from Beverly, MA

    I enjoyed this dip, and the fact that it's so much healthier than most of the other dips I make. I used low-fat versions of the cream cheese and sour cream, and surprised my husband with the pumpkin. It came together easily, and I'd definitely make it again!

    Give it a meal or party, this dip will be a big hit at the function. Very different, and will be making this for a group of people next week. Veterans of Foreign War. I'm in charge and I'm going to spring this on them and make them guess what's in it. Another game to play and eat!
