Halloween is finally here, and we have prepared three unique recipes that will get you in the right festive mood with all that this special night will bring. They are all easy to make and incredibly delicious, always staying on the healthy side. Eat them while watching a scary film or telling scary stories by candlelight, we hope you enjoy these delicious snacks!
1.Creepy Black Bean Spiderweb Hummus
Let’s dip into the first spooky recipe! This black bean hummus has a creamy spiderweb and an edible spider too! We’re sure this will be a great healthy choice for an appetizer after all the candy that is sure to happen on this frightful night.
1. With the food processor running with a closed lid, drop in the garlic cloves and process until finely chopped. Add the black beans, and process until pureed. Add the remaining ingredients and process until completely smooth. Taste and correct seasonings, adding more as needed.
2. Spoon the hummus into a serving dish, smoothing the top. Grab your AlbaLisa Jalapeño cream bottle to make the spider web design on top of the hummus. You can place a plastic spider into the web, or make one (or more) from black olives. Refrigerate until ready to serve with a bowl of AlbaLisa Organic Tortilla Chips.
2. Jack-O-Lantern Quesadillas
Get creative with this Jack-O-Lantern Quesadillas. Instead of making a mess carving whole pumpkins, have a friendly competition to see who can decorate the most wicked Jack-O-Lantern tortilla. It’s even better because there’s some hidden veggies in case you have some picky eaters at home.
1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the Sunflower oil. Add sliced peppers and onion and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook until soft or for about 5-7 minutes and transfer to a bowl.
2. Use a sharp steak knife to cut out a Jack-o-Lantern face on only half ( 5 total) of the tortillas.
3. In a clean skillet on medium high heat, sprinkle water on the tortillas. Let them heat up for about 20 seconds and flip only once. Heat it up for another 20 seconds or until the tortillas look and feel soft. Add veggies on top of the uncut tortilla and enough cheese on top, place the Jack-O-Lantern cut tortilla on top and let it cook until the cheese is completely melted.
4. Serve warm with a dollop of guacamole for a stem and finish decorating with some bloody-looking Hot Jalapeño Sauce.
3. Ghost Boo-ñuelos
This last recipe is an exciting one, we think you'll love munching on these baked-to-perfection ghost chips. Baking the flour tortillas is healthier than frying them and the sweet combination of cinnamon and sugar is the perfect way to end the night on a sweet note. You don’t have to use a cookie mold if you don't have one, you can grab a pair of kitchen scissors and freestyle your own ghostly figures.
- AlbaLisa Organic Flour Tortillas, one bag=10 tortillas
- ¼ cup white sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 3 tbsp melted sugar
- 1 tub vanilla ice cream,optional
1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line your baking pans with parchment paper. Then, set the pans aside.
2. Cut the flour tortillas into shapes using a ghost shaped cookie cutter or in any shape you like. (You might want to poke them with a toothpick to prevent them from bubbling too much).
3. Mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl and spread out over the bottom of a small plate. Melt butter in a small bowl and brush both sides of the tortilla.
4. Press both sides of the tortilla shapes into the cinnamon sugar mixture to coat them. Set the pieces on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake the tortillas for 12-15 minutes until golden and crispy. Remove them from the oven and let them sit for 2-3 minutes and then enjoy! You can serve on top of a couple scoops of ice cream for a cold treat.
