Layered Monterey Pumpkin Dip


Post by community member:

Pumpkin? In a dip? Yes, pumpkin in a dip. And it is so good. This is a really good way to get a compliment on your cooking abilities. No one will think the secret ingredient in this delicious, slightly spicy dip is plain old pumpkin. Pumpkin is versatile, it has a mellow, sweet flavor that goes well with a lot of flavors.

Let’s start making this simple, savory pumpkin dip recipe.

How to make Layered Monterey Pumpkin Dip:

1-15oz can pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling
1-8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
3 Tablespoons jarred jalapeno juice
1-8 oz container sour cream
2 Tablespoons chopped jarred jalapenos
1-4 oz can chopped green chilies
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
3 green onions, chopped
1-2 1/4 oz can sliced olives, chopped

Put the pumpkin, cream cheese and jalapeno juice into a bowl.

Beat it with a mixer until it is creamy and the cheese is completely combined. Spread it into a baking dish.

Pretend all the cream cheese is mixed into my pumpkin. I only have one beater for my hand mixer at the moment because the kids buried mine somewhere. We haven’t found it yet.

Next, mix the sour cream, green chilies and jalapenos in a bowl.

Spread it over the pumpkin mixture.

Now, chop some green onion, olives and tomatoes. Sprinkle them over the top of it all.

And there you have it, one incredible easy-to-make dip.

I found the original recipe on the Nestle website and have made some changes to suit our tastes. Feel free to do the same. You can use low fat cream cheese and light sour cream to make it a little healthier if you wanted to.

*A quick note here – if I wasn’t feeding small children, I would have doubled the jalapenos. It was slightly spicy, but definitely mild. If you like it more on the spicy side, add more!

    This sounds so good. I love spicy dips and think it’s great that this one has a “secret” ingredient. I’ll have to keep this recipe in mind.

    I one made this a few weeks back and everyone loved it. Funny, nobody could figure out what was in it. They would look suspiciously at it and say “that is not xxx, is it?” I would say “no” and then they ate it and raved about it.
    Then everyone was stunned when I finally was asked to tell the ingredients. It was fun.
