We love taking advantage of various seasonal ingredients and pumpkin is definitely one of our favorites! This cheesy pumpkin dip is a tasty snack that is perfect for entertaining or hanging out with the family on game night; it’s like the cool, older sibling to your run-of-the-mill cheese and crackers! You can make it on the stove or in a food processor (we prefer melting it down so it’s gooey and delicious), and with it you’ll never be at a loss for what to serve when you need a quick and fun dip recipe!
