Pumpkin Hummus Recipe - great fall appetizer and easy enough to add to a Thanksgiving menu || Stylish Spoon

Infuse the flavors of fall into a year-round favorite.  Adding pumpkin puree to store-bought hummus adds a slightly sweet, warm flavor to this crowd-pleasing dip, and a healthy dose of beta-carotene.  Serve this as part of a Halloween, Thanksgiving or fall cocktail party menu.  I even like to whip up a batch for an afternoon snack.
