Halloween themed foods are so much fun to make (and eat!) and this one is no exception. Witch Guacamole Dip is a creamy, spicy spread that pairs great with tortilla chips, veggie sticks, or crackers.
I saw this recipe in a Woman’s World Magazine and couldn’t even wait until October to make it. I love a witch and this one is especially ghoulish and green.
We used to really do up the Halloween decor and a friend of mine built me a lifesized witch- Broome Hilda. We had her for years, but I got rid of here this past year. I was tired of tripping over her in the attic and I was on one of those quests to simplify my life, which never seems to last long and leaves me with occasional pangs of regret.
I really miss my Broom Hilda. So guacamole Hilda will have to do instead. She’s not quite the same, but she is tasty.
Three ripe avocados are mixed with a container of chive and onion cream cheese. The cream cheese makes it thick and easier to mold into the shape of a witch’s face plus it adds flavor and creaminess.
For even more green effect and to spice it up, a little salsa verde is mixed in. You can use mild or hot store-bought salsa verde. I like the hot!
Chopped cilantro and green onion are added and make wonderful green specks across the witch’s face.
This witch is so much fun to make and really easy for the artistically challenged like myself. Just shape the dip into an oval shape and add on the facial features.: carrot stick hair, a tortilla chip hat, bell peppers for the eyes and eyebrows, a pickle nose, and a pea wart.
I loved adding the hair. Isn’t it fabulous?
