Here is an absolute easy and effective way to serve your nachos at helloween. It takes only 15 minutes to prepare this snack.
I made a guacamole dip, because it looks perfect as vomit with it's green colour but also any bought dip would work (especially nacho cheese dip) and so the preparation is even faster.

Step 1: Supplies


Ingredients needed:
- small pumpkin (20 cm diameter)
- 4 bags of nachos (I used 4 different tasts)
- 3 ripe avocados
- 500g sour cream
- 3 garlic pieces
- 1/2 lemon
- salt, pepper

Supplies needed:
- tray
- kitchen knife
- exacto knife

Step 2: Make the Guacamole

You can skip this step if you have a ready made dip.

a.
Peel the ripe avocados, remove the core.

b.
Add the sour cream, juice of 1/2 lemon and the shortened onions.

3.
Use a fork and stir well and shorten the avocados but not to well, so there remain pieces which let the guacamole look like real vomit :).

4.
Use salt and pepper to spice your guacamole.

Step 3: Carve the Pumpkin

a.
Use your kitchen knife to cut off the pumpkins top.

b.
Use metal stylus to "draw" the pumpkins "face".

c.
Use a spoon to hollow out the pumkin.

d.
Use your exacto knife to cut your pattern.

e.
The exacto knife only cuts the "first layer".

f.
Cut out teeth.

g.
Cut out the "2nd layer".

Step 4: Create Your Scenario

a.
Poor a part the guacamole into the pumkin.

b.
Put the top back on the pumkin.

c.
Put pumpkin in the middle of the tray.

d.
Poor the rest of the guacamole in front of the pumpkin.

e.
Add the nachos on the left and the right of the "stream".

Step 5: Enjoy

Enjoy to serve your guests some vomit to taste. Perfect for helloween :))

    We have no Halloween. But if we had any, it would probably be one of my favorite nibbles. : D

    Good idea. If you want to use it for sweets, I would recommend a bigger pumpkin
