Winter Squash Dip

squash dip

If you want a different appetizer for this fall- why not make a dip from squash? You might not thing about using winter squash as an appetizer, but this dip could just change your mind. The natural sweetness of the squash works well the other ingredients. You can use any number of squash for this recipe, or pumpkin. A couple of acorn squash or a good sized butternut squash both work, too. You’ll want 3-4 cups of cooked squash. You can even use frozen squash.

Serve the dip warm, with crusty bread, crackers and smoked meats. I like to serve it in a crock pot.
