Of a Barfing pumpkins and brains (it's a reciepe)~~~~

Hello Darklings,

Well I have another Halloween food idea, I ran it by my niece and nephews and they all like it, especially the younger ones.   So here it is----A Barfing pumpkin---

Barfing pumpkin dip with brains
 Barf  ---  Guacamole:
3 avocados, halved and pitted
Juice of 1 lime
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp chili powder

Mash avocados with the lime juice. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Brains--- Queso:
1 Tbsp. butter
1 scallion clove, chopped
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup milk
1 Tbsp. corn starch
4 oz canned mild green chilies, with juice

In a pot over medium heat, melt 1 Tbsp. butter and sauté scallions. Add cheese, milk and cornstarch, and mix until melted and smooth. Add green chiles and mix until combined.

Draw eyes like this > < with eyebrows and carve a sad round mouth on a small (but not too small) pumpkin. Hollow out the inside and insert a bowl to fit in evenly. Pour queso in the bowl and top with chopped tomatoes. Put Pumpkin with Queso on one end of a large foil lined serving platter Spoon guacamole coming out of the pumpkin’s mouth. Serve with chips along side the barf and the brains !

Frankly I think both dips sound good for any occasion , you can go easy on the chili powder as well as the mild green chilies, some people don't like it too spicy.  

You can find all kinds of Halloween food and beverage ideas on the internet, the children help me a lot on ideas, but it's always wise to rotate food ideas each year, unless there is one that is an outstanding favorite that everyone loves.

My freezer and refrigerators (I have two) are going to be stuffed!!

Later Darklings
