Pumpkin piespice is a blend of spices designed to be used in pumpkinpie, although the spice blend can also be used for various fruit pies and other dishes as well. Many stores sell pumpkinpiespice, especially in the fall and winter, when pumpkinpie is a popular treat, and it is also very easy to make this spice mixture at home.
An advantage to home production is that homemade pumpkinpiespice is fresher, and it tends to have much more flavor as a result. Homemade spice blends also allow cooks greater control.
The precise mixture of spices in pumpkinpiespice is up to the cook. Cinnamon, allspice, cloves, ginger, mace, and nutmeg are common inclusions, although they need not all be used, and the proportions vary. Cloves, for example, are very strong, so they are typically used in small amounts, while cinnamon can be used much more abundantly.

This turned out quite nicely, great mix of textures and flavors. If you use store bought salsa and store bought tortilla chips you will want to watch the salt levels. We made our own tortilla chips from corn tortillas and store-bought salsa and found the salt level was a bit high. A sodium reduced salsa would be perfect. Otherwise this has a great cheesy flavor, nice bits of tortila and the mix of beans, corn tomato and onions was very enjoyable.
