  • 3 Avocados pitted and peeled
  • 1 Lime juiced
  • 1/3 cup Red Onion finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Cilantro finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt


  • Chop the red onion and cilantro. Juice the lime. Peel and pit the avocados.
  • Place the avocados in a mixing bowl along with the lime juice and salt. Mash the ingredients together with a potato masher or fork until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Stir in the red onion and cilantro.

Spooky Spider Web

  • For the web, pipe 4 circles of sour cream onto the guacamole. Using a knife, draw lines from the inner circle to the edge of the bowl.
  • For the spider, use a whole black olive for the body and sliced olives for the legs.

Monster Mash Face

  • Blue corn tortilla chips may be used for the hair and nose.
  • Sliced cucumber and black beans may be used for the eyes and mouth.


  • Be sure to use avocados that are ripe, but not overripe. A ripe avocado will yield to pressure if you give it a gentle squeeze. To help speed the ripening process, place the avocados in a brown paper bag along with some bananas overnight.
  • Feel free to mix in any extras, if desired, such as a fresh garden tomato, a jalapeno or serrano pepper, cumin, black pepper, or cayenne pepper.
  • A white onion could be substituted for the red onion.
  • I would not substitute bottled lime juice or dried cilantro. Fresh ingredients are what makes this recipe so amazing!
