Secret Ingredient Healthy Queso Recipe
This time of year, everything is pumpkin; pumpkin donuts, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pasta and yes, of course, the pumpkin spice latte. But there’s no rule that pumpkin can’t be savory. Healthy queso made with pumpkin is the perfect balance of nutrition and crowd pleasing flavor.
The pumpkin lends the perfect color and texture to the queso so even the pickiest of eaters won’t know the secret ingredient. Pumpkin is a good source of vitamin A which is good for your eyes and for thyroid health. This healthy queso gives you all the nutrition and none of the taste.
This recipe is so cheesy and delicious.
Notes: For extra creaminess stir in a dollop of sour cream or plain greek yogurt.
For a heartier taste I recommend adding a can of black beans, ground beef, spicy sausage or even quinoa.
