A Healthy Halloween Party Snack

Do you like to get into the Halloween spirit? Warm up your taste buds with this delicious chili taco dip! Filled with all the flavors of your favorite chili and taco toppings, this scary good appetizer is perfect for your Halloween party.

It’s quick and simple to prepare, too – so you’ll have more time to enjoy the festivities. Plus, it’s perfect for serving a crowd. So, gather your friends and family around and dig in. Don’t forget to serve it with chips and veggies for dipping!

To prepare this delightfully spooky appetizer, simply heat up your favorite turkey chili and spread it out evenly into a pie pan or pie plate. Next, top the chili with guacamole and spread it into a smooth and even layer to create a creamy base for your other toppings.

To add an extra layer of spookiness to your Halloween Chili Taco Dip, use a Ziploc bag to create a fun “piping” effect with sour cream. Simply place a half of a cup of sour cream (we use a light version) in the bag and cut off one corner, creating a makeshift piping bag. Then use this technique to create a spider web design on top of the guacamole.

To complete your chili cheese dip, be sure to garnish the edges with slices of black olives, along with plenty of cheese and pico de gallo. For an adorable olive spider garnish, simply place an olive in the center of your dip as the body, and then cut another olive in half lengthwise and into thin slices for legs. Arrange these legs around the olive body to complete your creepy crawly Halloween snack!

Whether you’re hosting a Halloween party or just looking for a healthy snack to tide you over until trick-or-treating time, this Halloween Spider Web Taco Dip is sure to be a crowd pleaser. You can even make it ahead of time and store it in the fridge with plastic wrap until you’re ready to serve it. So get ready to indulge in some spooky Halloween fun with this tasty recipe!
