Spooky Spider Nest Dip

Are you getting excited for Halloween?  I know we are!  We have our decorations out, most of our costumes bought, parties planned, and now we are just enjoying the anticipation of one of our favorite holidays.  That includes making lots of good Halloween food to my kids mixed fright and delight.  And this Spooky Spider ‘s Nest Dip may top the charts this year.  It is soooo good and so fast!  You could throw it together in 10-15 minutes if you have premade guacamole, which I usually keep on hand from Costco for just these occasions.  The dip tastes a lot like 7 layer dip, only better because of the extra ingredients.  And it is certainly in the spooky Halloween spirit!  A definite Go-To Halloween party recipe you’ll be using for years to come.

Spooky Spider's Nest 7-Layer {Plus} Dip
  • 1 (16 oz) can refried black beans
  • 1 (1¼ ounce) envelope taco seasoning
  • 1 (4 oz.) can diced green chilies, drained (or jalapeños if you like it hot)
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup guacamole (If you don't have time to make it fresh, I like Wholly guacamole.)
  • 1½ cups shredded cheese
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 cup chopped fresh tomato
  • 1 can jumbo olives
  • A couple large bags of tortilla chips
  1. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the refried beans and taco seasoning.
  2. On a large tray or bowl, spread the beans in an even circular shape.
  3. Sprinkle green chilies over. Smooth salsa over. Smooth guacamole over.
  4. Place your sour cream in the end of a ziploc bag. Cut the corner off. Squeeze sour cream on top of guacamole in several concentric circles (or octagon shapes for a more authentic look). Using a knife or the handle of a fork, run lines lightly through the sour cream to make the web shape.
  5. Sprinkle lettuce in a circle around bean dip. Sprinkle tomatoes, green onions, and sliced olives over. Sprinkle cheese over.
  6. To make olive spider, cut one olive length wise (body) and place in center of the web.  Cut ⅓ off the end of another olive (head) and place at top of body.  Cut one more olive in half length wise, then cut each half into 4 strips length wise and arrange on each side of the body for legs.   (You can substitute a plastic spider ring if desired)  Serve with lots of tortilla chips!
