If you’ve been eyeing Halloween snacks on Pinterest all month but now lack the energy to actually follow through, never fear. These creepy chips and guacamole are a snap to make but will add a homemade touch to your All Hallows’ Eve spread. Just pick up some seasonal cookie cutters think ghosts, bats and pumpkins and you can turn a package of plain tortillas into scary snacks perfect for Halloween.

For chips:

  • 1 package flour tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • Spooky cookie cutters

For dip:

  • 3 medium ripe Hass avocados
  • 1 medium lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 large clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced


  1. Spray the tortillas on both sides with cooking spray and cut into shapes using the cutters.
  2. Spread chips on a baking sheet in a single layer (you might need to use two pans). Season with salt and bake in a 350 degree oven until they are golden and crisp, about 7 to 10 minutes.
  3. Cut the avocados in half, and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Squeeze half of the lime on top, then add the salt and cumin.
  4. Mash using a fork or potato masher, being sure to leave some larger pieces for texture. Add the onion, garlic and 1 tablespoon of jalapeno and stir to combine. Taste the dip and add more lime juice or jalapeno to taste. Serve with chips.
