"Guacamoldy Eyeballs" for Halloween
Oct 06, 2015
Looking for an easy & quick Halloween themed appetizer to make for an upcoming party or your kid’s spooky sleepover? These are the perfect bite sized foods that both kids and adults can enjoy!
Get the kids involved and have them pipe the guacamole into the hollowed out eggs and place the sliced green olive “eye” on top!
Prep/Cook Time: 20 minutes Number of Servings: 10
- 10 eggs (hard boiled and sliced in half with yolk removed, see instructions below)
- Package of prepared guacamole (classic style for the kids, spicy for the adults)
- 2 Tablespoons smooth taco sauce
- ¼ cup 0% plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 4 pimiento-stuffed green olives, sliced
- Place eggs in a large-sized pot with enough cold water over the eggs to reach 2 inches above the top of the eggs.
- Bring the water to a boil & then remove from the heat source & cover the eggs. Let them sit for approximately 11-12 minutes.
- Mix non-fat Greek yogurt, taco sauce, and garlic powder together in a small bowl and add to a zip-lock bag (with most of the air squeezed out). Cut off a small part of the corner of the zip lock bag and set aside on a paper plate in case of leaking.
- Run cold water over the eggs to help them cool and then crack and peel the egg shell once they have completely cooled.
- Cut the eggs in half in a lengthwise fashion & remove yolks (can be used later for salads)
- Place the Wholly Guacamole into a zip-lock style back and snip off the end to squeeze the guacamole into each of the egg halves where the yolk used to be and top with a sliced green olive for the “eye.”
- Grab the zip-lock bag with the taco sauce mixture and pipe thin, squiggly lines on the whites of the egg for a “bloodshot” look to the eyes.
- You can buy hard boiled eggs already cooked/peeled for you at County Market to make this recipe even faster!!
- Don’t like green olives – use the sliced black ones instead and squirt a dot of taco sauce or ketchup in the center for the same look.
- Buy the spicy style of guacamole if you like a little more heat. You can also use Sriracha instead of taco sauce!
