"I served this recipe at a Halloween themed party years ago and it was a big hit. I had moved and lost touch with most of the ladies who had attended the party. However, several years later, I received a phone call from one of the women who had been a guest at the party...she said she had been trying to track me down all that time because she wanted a copy of the recipe of the pumpkin dip I had served. I very happily provided her with the recipe and here it is for everyone else. I served this inside a large round of bread, which can be dyed orange to make it look like a pumpkin. Just use any recipe you like for a yeast bread and add orange food coloring to the dough (you can reserve a small dough ball and dye it green to stick on top of the round loaf before baking to represent a stem)...cut off the top of the loaf of bread and scoop out the inside to form a cavity to place your dip inside, then serve the bread "guts" as dippers, along with fresh veggies, crackers, chips, etc..whatever you prefer."

"Excellent! I served this at a football party, and people couldn't get enough of it! I omitted the black olives (personal preference) and made half with the ham and half without (for vegetarian guests). It was great with veggies, crackers, baguette, and tortilla chips. Thanks for a keeper!"
"I made this to take to a friend's for Thanksgiving and put it in a cute ceramic pumpkin baking dish for a hostess gift. The presentation was very nice. We enjoyed this with assorted veggies. I used Emeril's Southwestern spice in place of the Mexican and added a little salt and pepper. We all really liked this, and I will make again."
