I’ve been snacking on this pumpkin hummus the past few days and it sure gets tastier over time. I recommend making this a day before your holiday party and letting the flavors meld together. And you are going to make this for your next holiday party, right? Okay, good!

I especially enjoy the savory spices of cumin and chili powder combined with the light sweetness of the cinnamon and pumpkin puree. It’s not overly pumpkiny, but has just enough to give it a faint cinnamon sweet with a little heat from the cayenne. This pumpkin hummus is seriously the best!

The lovely people at Food Should Taste Good sent me the most fabulous package which included Harvest Pumpkin, Sweet Potato and Multigrain Chips. I so wish I would have had the Harvest Pumpkin Chips when I photographed this hummus. FSTG Harvest Pumpkin Chips + Pumpkin Hummus = Delicious dangerous addiction! Dangerous and addicting in a good way, of course! 🙂

Here’s your recommendation from the food expert… that’s me! Ha! Make this pumpkin hummus for your next fall festival, Halloween party and/or Thanksgiving gathering. Serve it with raw cauliflower (really good pairing), raw baby carrots and FSTG Harvest Pumpkin Chips. Food Should Taste Good did not compensate me to write this post. They shipped me some of my favorite things, though. Seriously, the FSTG company make the best chips and crackers.

On another note, how cute is this bowl?! I’m absolutely loving the new line of kitchen essentials from The Pioneer Women at Walmart!
