Need a spooky and fun weekend recipe? How about graveyard taco dip with gravestone tortilla chips! Food bloggers Jo and Sue have an awesome recipe, and you’ll see it’s just as simple to make, as it is cute.

Hint: It’s basically seven layer dip, but with fewer layers. So easy!

Graveyard Taco Dip

First layer:
1 can refried beans or refried black beans
Second layer:
2 cups sour cream
1 pkg taco seasoning
Third layer:
2 avocados, mashed
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
Fourth layer:
1 cup salsa
Fifth layer:
1 bunch scallions (green onions), chopped

In a small bowl, mix the sour cream and taco seasoning. In another small bowl, mix the mashed avocados, minced garlic, and mayonnaise.
In a small Pyrex dish or pie plate, layer the beans, sour cream mixture, avocado mixture, and salsa. Sprinkle the scallions on top.
Chill at least an hour, or until ready to serve. (The dip can be made a day ahead and kept, covered, in the refrigerator.)
To make the tombstones and tree, cut the shapes you want out of 2 large tortillas. Place the cut-out shapes on a parchment paper lined cookie tray and bake at 350 degrees until the tortillas are nice and brown. Put the tombstones and tree in the dip just before serving.
