Mummy Dip - aka Avocada Dip

I had so much fun with my Whooo You Lookin At Dip last year I wanted to make another Halloween themed one... Here's a super simple Mummy! If you love avocado this is a nice change from Guacamole (please make no mistake, I love me some guac!), this is just creamier and mellower.
And in this reporter's opinion... cuter:@)

Doesn't he look scared- They're gonna do what with those tortilla chips???
Avocado lovers will notice that there isn't any citrus in this recipe to keep it green.
After 4 hours my dip did get darker, so it's best to whip this up and serve it within a couple hours.

Mummy Knows Best-Avocado Is Good For You!

Avocado Dip
For each mashed avocado:
2 Tblsp sour cream-light is ok
2 tsp very finely minced onion
1 1/2 tsp dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix
1/8 tsp garlic powder
a few hearty grinds of fresh black pepper
Large green or black olives for eyes-I cut the last 1/3 off... Cook's snack:@)
Sour cream for topping
  1. Mix everything except olives and additional sour cream.
  2. Mound onto a bowl or plate and shape more like an oblong than a circle.
  3. Place eyes.
  4. Put a flatter icing tip into a disposable icing bag (I used a Wilton 101 petal tip).
  5. Fill icing bag with sour cream, about 1/2 C and pipe back and forth to make the bandages. Squeeze any unused sour cream back into the container.
  6. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
  7. Serve with tortilla chips.
My tip: I keep a box of these Wilton Disposable Icing Bags on hand and use them for everything from deviled eggs to, well, icing! Even posted about them here. A craft store coupon makes them affordable and a box lasts me a very long time.
Have a happy day!

  9. Oh, sweet Lynn....I enjoy your cute personality even more than your dips....and I am in LUV with your dips.

    Tip:
    Keep a shaker of FRUIT FRESH on hand AT ALL TIMES...wonderful to sprinkle a little on your fresh fruits, including your avocados...keeps everything from turning brown...
