I love Halloween, but that's not all! I am the Halloween kitchen witch, but I consider myself a witch of all trades.
Ghoulishly Slimy Halloween Dip
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!
Recipe 1: Green Slime Salsa
- 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)
- Thaw your spinach and squeeze out any extra water until the spinach is pretty dry.
- 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.
- 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.
Recipe 2: 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.
- 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed to drain
- 1/2 cup sour cream (you can also use light sour cream to save calories)
- 5 tablespoons of mayonnaise (you can use light mayo)
- 1/3 cup Parmigiano cheese
- 1/4 cup scallions, chopped
- Dash of pepper, to taste
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.
Recipe 3: 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.
- 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
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.
