Creamy Acorn Squash Dip

I love trying to take ingredients may use the same way and to try something different.  I had roasted some acorn squash and sweet dumpling squash earlier in the week, but come Saturday, needed an appetizer for a football game.  My alma mater, Clemson, was playing my boyfriend’s college team, so it all worked out well that this dip is orange! GO TIGERS (who did win!)
See directions for roasting here:

This creamy dish really won the group over… and talk about an easy dish? See the directions!

1/2 acorn squash (or sweet dumpling), roasted 
4 ounces cream cheese
½ cup half and half
2 dashes liquid smoke
4 dashes cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons sriracha hot sauce
1 tablespoons pepitas (roasted pumpkin seeds, or roast the seeds from the squash)

Directions: Blend all of the ingredients (besides pumpkin seeds) in food processor. Adjust smokiness and heat.


(note: If your dip is too thick, thin out with additional milk or half and half.)

Top with Pumpkin Seeds.
