"Green Slime" Salsa & Dip Recipes for Halloween
Serve up a creepy Halloween recipe in a plastic bowl with a skeleton propped up against it for some ghoulish fun. Spooky serving containers or table settings will make your creepy food ideas even more frightening. But it's a fun kind of scary.
This green dip is made with simple to find ingredients, and it is served up with blue chips to add a bit of spooky to the dippers and the green salsa. Fun stuff that's unusual or a bit scary looking is the best kind of Halloween food ideas I can think of. And the best part is, you don't have to go out and buy any fancy ingredients... these recipes are all made with regular food that's probably in your kitchen pantry.
How To Make This Green Slime Salsa Recipe
The ingredients to make Green Slime Salsa are:
- 1 pack Frozen Spinach - thawed & I hand squeeze it to drain all the water
- 4 ounces Cream Cheese - softened
- 1/2 cup of Sour Cream
- 1/3 cup of Mild Salsa - unless you want it spicier
- 2 Green Onions - chopped
- 1 clove Garlic - minced
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- Blue Corn Tortilla Chips - I like the way the blue ones look
How To Make This Green Slime Salsa:
- Drain your spinach and then squeeze out any extra water until the spinach is pretty dry.
- Get your food processor and put the spinach, the cream cheese, the salsa, the sour cream, the garlic, and the salt in. Puree it to mix. Pour the contents of the processor into a bowl, cover the bowl and chill in the refrigerator until the slime salsa is slightly thick.
- Put into a spooky looking bowl, place the blue tortilla chips around it on a platter and serve.
There are lots of different tortilla chips out there, I just thought the blue ones would look...weird. You can use any brand or color tortilla chip you like. Those multi-colored veggie ones would look a bit strange served with this salsa too.
Gooey Salsa Verde
You can find some slimy green salsa at your local food store, I got mine in Trader Joe's, the name reads Trader Jose's! You might not find this same brand but I am sure you can find green salsa in most stores. Look in the salsa aisle for Salsa Verde. It's yummy salsa and it's green... perfect for a gross Halloween recipe. You can even pour it right into a bowl and serve it with chips.
You can also mix equal amounts of whipped cream cheese to it and stir to mix it well. This salsa will be a thicker finished dish since the whipped cream cheese thickens it up. This is a tasty, and very easy to make Halloween party dip recipe.
