This cheesy dip is perfect for a Halloween party or fall gathering. It’s a quick microwave recipe with Sargento® Shredded 4 Cheese Mexican and Sargento® Whole Milk Ricotta, which melts together in a creamy smooth richness, plus bacon, garlic and green onions. A hollowed-out pumpkin makes a boo-tiful serving vessel.
