About This Halloween Guacamole Dip

When hosting a Halloween party, expect your guests to gobble up dips and treats like hungry monsters. Guacamole appetizers are guaranteed to satisfy the hunger of all the ghouls and ghosts at your celebration. Make sure there’s enough to share.

And when prepping appetizers for your party, it’s important to find ways to save time. For quickly assembling tasty Halloween guacamole, I use an awesome shortcut – a can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies. It gives this savory dip an authentic, delicious flavor.

Spooky Guacamole Witch

🛒 Ingredients

  • Avocados: Look for ripe Haas Avocados from Mexico. They should have a dark purple skin and should look firm with a bit of softness to the touch, but not overly soft.
  • Rotel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies: Find it in the canned food aisle at the market where the other diced tomatoes are. It’s awesome shortcut when making guacamole. It eliminates the need to fire roast Roma tomatoes over the grates of a gas stove.
  • Onion: White onion is preferred, but feel free to use a yellow onion instead.
  • Lime Juice: For a delicious authentic Mexican flavor. The acid also helps the guacamole from turning brown.
  • Kosher Salt: Enhances the flavor of the guacamole.
  • Ground Black Pepper: For an earthy, rustic taste with a bit of heat.

  • Pull together a cohesive look by selecting three main colors.

  • Compare pricing from party stores and online retailers. Many brick-and-mortar stores stay competitive by price matching.
  • When setting up food tables, incorporate various heights and levels. Use small crates, and spooky books for a stunning visual effect.
