Spooky Guacamole-Blog Linky

Easy Halloween Appetizer

On busy nights like Halloween I love to have food prepared for quick and easy entertaining.  With four kids, Halloween is too busy a day to be chopping, cooking or baking.  So anything I can make that is both festive and simple is at the top of my list for easy Halloween Appetizers like Spooky Guacamole.

  1. Wholly Guacamole– 1 package, any flavor
  2. Pimiento-Stuffed Manzanilla Olives- 1 jar
  3. Tortilla Chips
