     Most of the fun of Halloween after you outgrow the candy-scarfing stage is thinking up scary snacks and treats to gross-out your family and friends.

    Like Banana Scream Pie. Or Boo(ger) Burgers or how about Hallow Wienies? Slime on a Slab? Guts on a Stretcher? Bloody Worms, Ogre Butt…or, let’s see…Scabs and Fingertips could be Pico de Gallo and chips. You can practically see the food that goes with each name.

    Am I right?

Perfect idea for both.

    Make a grand entrance, announce the name of this dish, stand back, watch the horrified faces, and smirk. Never, ever admit to what it actually is.

    Recipe: Gory Green Monster Eyeball Dip

    Gory Green Monster Eyeball Dip on ShockinglyDelicious.com. Recipe here: http://www.shockinglydelicious.com/?p=9927Summary: Lumpy with eyeballs and unidentified chunky stuff, this is a super simple yet tasty Halloween gross-out appetizer. Ewwwww!

    Ingredients

    • A handful of grapes, both green and red, or whatever color grapes you can find
    • Guacamole (either chunky homemade or store-bought)
    • Mission brand Halloween Tortilla Chips (or any tortilla chip or vegetable dippers)

    Instructions

    1. Wash, dry and peel the grapes, using your smallest paring knife.
    2. Fold skinned grapes into prepared guacamole, scoop into serving bowl (make sure eyeballs are showing on top of dip), and surround with chips or vegetable dippers.
    3. Be sure to label the dip in your spookiest printing.

    Cabo Fresh GuacamoleGuacamole

    My favorite new prepared guacamole is Cabo Fresh Guacamole, which is 95% avocado, and the rest seasonings (no preservatives). It’s organic, and delicious! If you want, make your own version from ripe fresh mashed avocados, chopped onion, tomatoes and cilantro, a squirt of lemon or lime juice, a pinch of salt, and maybe some fresh garlic. You can use Elizabeth Rafeedie’s great recipe, or wing it.

    Mission Halloween ChipsChips

    I found these Mission brand Halloween Tortilla Chips, in black and bright orange, in Vons. Look for them, or use regular tortilla chips, and/or whatever vegetable dippers you like.

    Preparation time: 15 minutes
    Diet type: Vegetarian
    Number of servings (yield): 8
    Culinary tradition: Mexican
