I was more skeptical of this recipe than any other I've made using pumpkin. My family has a favorite recipe that is similar but uses refried or black beans on the bottom and lots of cheese. We have been making it for the Superbowl and other special occasions for at least 20 years. This recipe uses 1/3 less fat cream cheese and reduced fat sour cream - I did not, but I don't think either one would change the results. I also added avocado to the minced vegetables on top.
I absolutely loved this dip. It will probably find a place in my top ten favorites.
