I had all these great plans to make wonderful Halloween cookies and caramel apples along with some great spiders made out of little sausages wrapped in crescent dough and use potato sticks for legs and mustard for eyes. Then I was going to make a ranch dressing dip and rings of bbq sauce so as to pull a spider web design using a toothpick. It is now Sunday evening and I have not accomplished any of these things. I made a spiderweb dip! Yeppers, that is it! A dip. . .for chips. . .Fritos corn chips. I really should look at the brighter side of this woeful tail. My hubby needed help this weekend on a project of reorganizing the storage and hauling things around that would make his world happier. So, this is what I did. Now, I am sore with no Halloween goodies *but* a happy hubby. I guess it is not a complete loss, yes?
The recipe used cheater ingredients, which I really try not to do when cooking but I really needed a last effort to show something for the season:
Spread bean dip onto center of large platter, leaving 1 to 2 inches around edge of platter. Carefully spread bean dip with guacamole.
Spoon sour cream into resealable plastic food bag. Snip off corner. Pipe sour cream in 4 concentric circles onto guacamole. Drag toothpick or knife through sour cream from center outward to make spider web design.
Layer lettuce, cheese and tomatoes on edge of platter. Serve with tortilla or corn chips.
BTW, this was tastey. =D
