For those of us not interested in getting too technical or even turning a stove on for Halloween, have I got the perfect recipe idea! The Bride of Frankenstein really doesn’t get too much attention for Halloween these days so I thought I would showcase her best in guacamole dip and chips form.
Just makes me scream with frightful delight, wouldn’t you agree? It’s alive! It’s aaaalliiiiivvveeee! *ahem* Sorry about that. I’m known to get a bit carried away…
Now you don’t have to make the guacamole the same way I did. This is just how I typically make guacamole, nothing special so there is room for variation. Just keep two things in mind: 1). Make sure it fills up to the brim of whatever bowl you do use, and 2). Go a little easy on the add-ins you choose to use because you want her face to be as uniformly green as possible…if that makes sense. Not too lumpy or multi-colored from cilantro or onions, etc.
And that is it really. Simple. Easy. Fun yet has that perfect Halloween flare to it. Your guests will love scooping up this Bride of Frankenstein guacamole dip.Print

This dip is adorable! I might have to have a Halloween party just so I’ve got an excuse to serve this to everyone I know.
This is so simple and brilliant! I love the animated gif, too.
I love your theme so much! Your food is fabulously spooky! I wanted to do an all Halloween theme myself but started looking around and immediately saw it’s been done, by you! I have total Halloween envy right now! 🙂
No!! Halloween needs more help, I would LOVE to see your holiday theme! Please do it!
This is great because we all need a little savory to balance out the sweet on Halloween 🙂 Delightful!

You know, I have never seen The Black Lagoon but if it looks like this dip then maybe watching it will make me hungry 🙂 Thank you so much for the comment!
So cool, have to try this, but what’s with all the Halloween recipes already? The kids just went back to school, I know this way we can plan but juess it
seems so early.
Hi Lori. I do Halloween early depending on what month Vegan MoFo is in (see post for link to guide you to what Vegan MoFo is). It’s been 3 years of me doing this. I also do it because I simply love Halloween, that’s all 🙂
