This creepy Halloween Taco Dip is one of my favorite Halloween recipes for parties. It only takes minutes to make and is always a crowd pleaser.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I just love that you can go completely over the top with food, decor and costumes.
Each year my bestie, Jill, has the best Halloween party. Jill really knows how to throw an over the top party. No detail is overlooked.
One of the staples at Jill’s annual Halloween party is her mother-in-law’s taco dip. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s ah-mazing! I can’t get enough of the stuff.
For a fun twist, I thought I would take the classic taco dip and add some spooky touches. The first thing I did was add a layer of guacamole to give it that Frankenstein-y greenish color. It’s perfect for Halloween!
If you’re not a fan of guacamole, you could always add refried beans. You just need something that has a darker color to offset the spider web design.
Next, instead of spreading the toppings over the entire top, I kept them to the edges to allow enough space for the spider web.
For the spider web, I used a sour cream based mixture (find the details in the recipe) and piped it on. It’s a simple technique – nothing fancy.
Last, is the olive spider. I just love this little guy. I simply cut up a black olive to make him. Super simple. If you’re not a fan of olives, you could always use a plastic spider ring instead.
