Pumpkin Hummus Dip

Pumpkin Hummus Dip @diethood

If by some chance you catch me watching an NFL game, it’s probably because the Chicago Bears are playing. However, sometimes I make the mistake in watching the Packers win, or better yet, lose! *Hi Cheeseheads!* 😉

But I am so glad I tuned in this past Monday because I got to see that “Hail Mary” pass. This was the one and only time that I stood behind the Packers. I mean, come on! It was clearly in the hands of the defender; I couldn’t believe that they awarded Tate with a touchdown.

Dear fill-in Refs,

Glad you are out and looking for another job.

Thank goodness I had this pumpkin hummus dip to get me through it all.

By the way, repeat after me, DA BEARS!

Pumpkin Hummus Dip @diethood

When you think of pumpkin, you probably think of pies, muffins, even lattes. In other words, you think of pumpkin as something sweet. A dessert of sorts. Allow me to introduce you to the other side of pumpkin. Pumpkin puree with chickpeas, yogurt, and parmesan cheese. And lime juice. And garlic. All put through your food processor and done in 5 minutes. Cut up some dipping veggies, layer a bunch of crackers, take a seat on the couch and dip away as you watch the next football game. Or Real Housewives of Wherever marathon – my guilty pleasure.

ENJOY!

    I am loving hummus lately, but never would have put pumpkin with it – great idea!

    Sorry, Vikings fan here 🙂 Hubby is a Packer fan, so it makes for interesting weekends!
