Halloween Recipe - Spider's Web Dip

Oct 26
This is by far one of the coolest Halloween recipes. It not only has a really great presentation it is a great tasty and hearty recipe. A favorite Mexican dip, decorated as a Spider's Web is sure to be a hit at your Halloween party. What you need: 2 (8-ounce) pkgs cream cheese 1 (1.25-ounce) pkg taco seasoning mix 1-1/2 cups sour cream 1 cup guacamole (from the deli section) 1/2 cup chunky salsa - Try out the Traverse Bay Farms award winning salsa 1 (16-ounce) can black refried beans 1 (12-ounce) pkg shredded Mexican cheese 1 (2.25-ounce) can chopped black olives 1 (15-ounce) can whole black beans, drained and rinsed 4 to 6 bags blue tortilla chips   How to make: Mix cream cheese and taco seasoning in a small bowl with one cup of the sour cream. Set the remaining sour cream aside for decorating. Set the mixture aside. In the bottom of a microwaveable serving dish, spread a thin layer of refried beans. Add a layer of shredded cheese. Heat the dish in the microwave for 20 to 35 seconds, until cheese is slightly melted. Layer the drained salsa over the cheese. Layer the drained olives over the salsa. Add a layer of the sour cream mixture, then a layer of guacamole. For the Spider's "nest", add a medium sized dollop of sour cream in the center. Spoon the rest of the sour cream into a zippered baggie. Cut a very small piece out of one of the bottom corners of the bag. Starting at the outer edge of the dip, pipe a thin circle around the perimeter.  Create another circle half way between the perimeter circle and the center dollop, creating three circles. Using a knife blade, toothpick or skewer, drag a thin line of the sour cream from the "nest" outward toward the edge of the dish. Continue making lines all around the nest to complete the spider web design. Position whole black bean onto the sour cream "web". For added fun, embellish with plastic decorative spiders. Serve with blue tortilla chips.  Also, toss around some dried cherries and a cup of cherry juice concentrate
