One of the fun things that I love...... is to make something on my Halloween menu that's unexpected and that may even get a laugh or two.

But you don't have to be an expert chef or even an artist to let your creativity come through. Remember something that you've heard me preach many time.....keep it simple!

Like these cute little pepper spooky faces.... even if you've only ever carved  pumpkins (and I know you have!) this will be a breeze!

Just slice the tops off carefully, then hollow out the peppers and give 'em a good rinse. Then take your paring knife and make a standard jack o lantern face. Simple.

Then once they look they way you want.... then just fill 'em up! You can fill them with dip (they look pretty cute when it's oozing out..) or use them to fill with individual pasta or potato salad!

I think any little goblins would love to be served their mac and cheese in these little spooks! And yes, we do encourage the little monsters to play with their food!
