Spooky Spider Web Dip Platter

Here's a great appetizer plate for Halloween. Bean dip is topped with guacamole and sour cream forms a spooky spider web design. Serve with tortilla chips.

You can easily make this a low fat snack by using our Low Fat Guacamole recipe, low fat sour cream and baked tortilla chips.

Tip: Make Halloween shaped tortilla chips by using cookies cutters to cut shapes out of tortillas, then deep fry them until crisp. You can also make low fat tortilla chips by baking your cutouts in A 350° F oven. In either case, sprinkle with salt. Chips made of blue corn tortillas look especially spooky.


double batch of Mexican-style bean dip
single batch guacamole
or single batch low fat guacamole
1/4 C sour cream
or low fat sour cream tortilla chips
or baked tortilla chips


Spread a layer of bean dip over a large round plate. Carefully spread a layer of guacamole over this. Put sour cream in a pastry bag fitted with a small round tip and pipe concentric circles on the guacamole. Take a toothpick or wooden skewer and drag it through the sour cream from the center outward to make spider web design.

Note: If you don't have a pastry bag, put sour cream in a small plastic Ziplock bag, cut off a small piece of the corner and pipe sour cream this way.
