Jack "O" Lantern Dip bowl
Cheese/ Salsa / Guacamole

1 - Medium size fresh pumpkin 1 - Block of Velveeta Cheese

3 - Salad bowl {black, orange} 1 c. chopped Cilantro

2 - fresh Lime
Salt to taste
1 large bag Of Tortilla Chips

Purchase a medium-sized round pumpkin. Take your pumpkin carving kit or a paring knife. You want to cut the top like you normally do if you are making your Jack "O" Lantern for Halloween. Remove all the insides, yes all that oooey gooey guts. You want to cut the hole in the top to the middle size of your bowl. Note: So it won't fall through the opening at the top. You want to cut out the mouth area also, about 3" diameter. Make sure all of the insides of your pumpkin is cleaned out.
Now the fun part, take your black construction paper and cut 2 medium to large circles depending on your mouth opening and the top area. These are going to be your eyes.
Now take your red construction paper and make smaller eyes odd shape if you want, then your yellow construction paper smaller for the center of the eye. It also can be odd shaped. Take the 3 pieces on the black, stick one straight pin into the top and one on the bottom; then pin in place above the mouth area. Then glue stick the red and yellow to the black; Whatever way you want them to look. Make them scary looking. Mine, I used a Sharpie. I have used the construction paper before and it is a better effect 3D.


In large bowl mix Rotel, diced tomatoes, 1/2 diced Jalapenos with juice, 1/2 c. chopped onions, 1/2 c. chopped cilantro and 1 squeezed lime over mixed salsa. Salt to taste.

Cheese dip:
Melt Velveeta cheese on low heat or microwave. Add 1/2 c salsa mix to it.

Avocado Dip:
Peel and remove pit all the Avocados; Mash all the avocados in a bowl, add diced Romo tomatoes, 1/2 c. chopped onion, 1/2 diced Jalapenos with juice, 1/2 c. cilantro and 2 c. Salsa. Mix all together.

Place salad bowl on top of "Jack" O Lantern fill with Cheese dip.
Now put the Avocado dip on the edge of the mouth, piling it up and spreading it thickly into a small puddle onto the covered {aluminum foil} cardboard. Making it look like he threw up. Place salsa in 2 small bowls on each side. Put chips in 2 bowls placing on each side also.

Enjoy your Halloween folks.....
