Grippingly Good Guacamole Recipe & Spookamole Recipe Contest


Halloween is about a month away – And I am getting a head start!! I just prepared my first Halloween recipe of the year! There are so many fun Halloween recipes out there, including my “Grippingly Good Guacamole!” I had a fun time coming up with an original recipe for the Spookamole Contest (after I finally grasped my creative juices that is!) This recipe turned out delicious thanks to the Avocados from Mexico! So, go ahead… try your hand at my recipe and submit your own recipe to the Spookamole Contest!!

garden-veggies-for-guacFirst off the ingredients list! We got the peppers and the tomato from our garden!

For the Gripping Guacamole:                                                       For the Gripping Hand:
5 Mexico avocados                                                                          10 raw chicken fingers
1 small yellow or white onion                                                        5 tops of jalapeños
1 large ripe tomato
2 small jalapeños (adjust for taste) 
2  garlic cloves  
2 Tablespoons of garlic salt
1 large lime – for fresh squeezed lime juice.


That’s me getting the good stuff out of the Avocados from Mexico (delicious!)

Cut each avocado in half and remove the seeds. (Save two seeds) Scoop out the insides into a medium serving bowl.  Mash avocados so they are slightly lumpy.

Guacamole-IngredientsThe guacamole is coming together… looking good!

Chop onion, jalapenos, tomato and mince garlic. Stir in onion, jalapenos, garlic, garlic salt, and tomato. Squeeze lime juice over mixture!

Refrigerate mixture with the two avocado seeds (the seeds will deter the mixture from going brown)!

halloween-recipe-with-fingeUsing my own hand & fingers as an example, I picked out the best like-shaped chicken fingers!

Char grill 10 raw chicken fingers (seasoned to taste) until blackened and cooked completely. Chose the 5 best-looking fingers for the recipe. (The fingers will curl up into a finger-like shape on their own)!

Slit the top of the fingers by cutting a small chuck out of the top half of the fingers (about the size of a real fingernail) This will allow the jalapeños to sit right on the top of the chicken fingers.

Forming-fingers-for-guacamoLet’s put it all together now!!

Use the five jalapeño tips and place on the fingers like nails. The best way I found to do this is to hollow out the jalapeños and cut one side off, leaving the very tip. This way they just slide on the slit you made from the chicken fingers!

Place the five fingers with fingernails in a “gripping hand” shape into the guacamole! Tip: Use your own hand as a guide, using the finger shapes and sizes to best fit a real hand!

Grab your best dipping chip and dig in!
