Preheat oven to 350°. Combine all ingredients, and stir together. Bake for 20 minutes or until warm. If you want to serve in a sliced gourd as seen in the images, follow these steps.
Select a wide gourd and use a knife to carefully slice in half. Also, cut the bottom of the gourd if it will not sit level on a flat surface. Use a spoon or fork to scoop out the seeds and carve out room for the dip.
Fill up your gourd with the dip and place on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Bake as usual, the gourd will soften slightly but still hold the dip!
Serve with bread rounds, bread sticks, chips, sliced vegetables, etc! Everyone will love this classic dip recipe with a Thanksgiving twist.
