- Fresh vegetables, crackers or corn chips
- In a bowl, beat cream cheese, pumpkin, taco seasoning and garlic powder until smooth. Stir in beef, peppers and olives. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

This has become a Thanksgiving must. Even those who don't like pumpkin look forward to this dish.
This is quick, easy, and everyone loves it at all the parties. They can't believe there is pumpkin in it!
This recipe is fabulous. Kids who don't eat or like pumpkin do not even know they are eating it! I have made it for several gatherings and always get rave reviews.
