Roasted Pumpkin Queso #PumpkinWeek #Sponsored

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cabot Cheese.
I received complimentary product for the purpose of review and recipe development for #PumpkinWeek,
but all opinions are honest and they are my own. This page may contain affiliate links.

While pumpkin season has most people dreaming of pies and other sweets, my tastebuds have me leaning to the savory side. And, when I received a selection of cheeses from event sponsor Cabot Cheese*, I launched into recipe testing one of my favorite afternoon snacks: queso! This version includes some homemade pumpkin purée. It's delicious. If you're enjoying this week's recipes, I hope you'll check out the sponsor prizes and enter the giveaway.

Thursday's #PumpkinWeek Recipes

Baked Goods & Desserts


  • 12 ounce evaporated milk
  • 2/3 C pumpkin purée (click on my Fall-Flecked Stuffed Grape Leaves for the purée recipe)
  • 1/4 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 organic white onion, peeled and diced (approximately 1-1/2 C)
  • 1/2 C organic diced tomatoes, divided
  • 2 C shredded cheese (preferred Cabot cheese, I used two different kinds of cheddar)
  • diced jalapenos, optional
  • thick cut chips for serving


In a medium skillet, cook the onions until softened and beginning to turn translucent. If you want the queso to be spicy, stir in jalapenos.

In a medium saucepan, whisk together evaporated milk, pumpkin purée, and flour until well combined. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking constantly. Lower heat to medium-low and simmer until silky and thickened, approximately 3 to 4 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in shredded cheese, one handful at a time. When completely melted, stir in 1/4 C tomatoes. Spoon the queso into a serving bowl and top with remaining tomatoes. Serve with chips.
