Thermomix Creamy Pumpkin Dip Recipe

Thermomix Creamy Pumpkin Dip Recipe

This dip is as multipurpose as it comes, with a delicious creamy texture and spicy flavour. Enjoy it as a dip, pizza base, pasta sauce and on Mexican dishes such as tacos or enchiladas.  This recipe makes a large portion which we love - cook once, eat lots of times! Store portions in the freezer if it’s too much to get through in a few days, and simply defrost as needed. If you or the kids aren’t keen on spice, leave out the jalapeno and the chili flakes.
