I love Halloween, but that's not all! I am the Halloween kitchen witch, but I consider myself a witch of all trades.

Serve up a creepy Halloween recipe in a plastic bowl with a skeleton propped up against it for some ghoulish fun. Spooky serving containers or table settings will make your creepy food ideas even more frightening. But it's a fun kind of scary.

This green dip is made with easy-to-find ingredients, and it is served up with blue chips to add a bit of spookiness to the dippers and the green salsa. Fun stuff that's unusual or a bit scary-looking is the best kind of Halloween food idea I can think of. And the best part is, you don't have to go out and buy any fancy ingredients . . . these recipes are all made with regular food that's probably already in your kitchen pantry.

I recommend serving the following Halloween green-dip recipes with tortilla chips or pita chips!

How to Make Green Slime Salsa

Ingredients:

  • 1 pack frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed to drain all the water
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1/3 cup of mild salsa, unless you want it spicier
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Blue corn tortilla chips (I like the way the blue ones look)

Directions:

  1. Thaw your spinach and squeeze out any extra water until the spinach is pretty dry.
  2. Get your food processor and put the spinach, cream cheese, salsa, sour cream, garlic, and salt in. Puree it. Pour the contents of the processor into a bowl, then cover and chill in the refrigerator until the slime salsa is slightly thick.
  3. Put into a spooky-looking bowl, place the blue tortilla chips around it on a platter and serve.

There are lots of different tortilla chips out there, I just thought the blue ones would look . . . weird. You can use any brand or color tortilla chip you like. Those multi-colored veggie ones would look a bit strange served with this salsa too.

Gooey Salsa Verde

You can find some slimy green salsa at your local food store; I got mine in Trader Joe's (the name reads Trader Jose's!). You might not find this same brand, but I am sure you can find green salsa in most stores. Just look in the salsa aisle for "salsa verde." It's yummy salsa and it's green—perfect for a gross Halloween recipe. You can even pour it right into a bowl and serve it with chips.

You can also mix equal amounts of whipped cream cheese to it and stir to mix it well. This salsa will be a thicker finished dish since the whipped cream cheese thickens it up. This is a tasty and easy-to-make Halloween party dip recipe.

Another Gooey Green Dip (Without Salsa)

Here is another fun and easy-to-make Halloween dip recipe that you can use to thrill and feed your family or party guests. It seems I am craving spinach this year, since many of the recipes I am using have spinach in them. Spinach is a great ingredient to add to a Halloween dip because the green color is kind of gross.

Ingredients:

  • 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to drain
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream (you can also use light sour cream to save calories)
  • 5 tablespoons of mayonnaise (you can use light mayo)
  • 1/3 cup of Parmigiano cheese
  • 1/4 cup of scallions, chopped
  • A dash of pepper, to taste

Directions:

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Stir and mix well. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving with chips. That's all there is to it.

Baked Green Spinach Artichoke Dip

Here is a dip that you have to put in the oven... and it's best served hot with chips.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (12-ounce) jar of marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions:

Mix the ingredients well and place in a baking dish. I like to spray my 9 x 11 Pyrex baking dish with a cooking spray first. Put in preheated oven set at 350˚F and bake for 20 to 25 minutes and serve hot with chips.
