Guacamole Pumpkin

The Kitchen has the ultimate gross-out presentation idea for your next Halloween table. Don't just serve guacamole. Serve it in a sick Guacamole Jack-o'-Lantern!

Episode: Spooky Surprises

Sunny Anderson makes a Guacamole Pumpkin, as seen on Food Network's The Kitchen

It's simple! Just carve a small to medium pumpkin so that it looks like it's making a retching face. Scoop out the seeds and discard or toast them up in the oven for later. Our Jack-o'-Lantern face has squinting eyes and a fully open mouth. Once you're done carving, you're ready to add your favorite guacamole recipe through the lid. For an even grosser effect, add the guacamole in front of your guests and push it through the mouth. Serve this monstrosity with your favorite chips--we like using veggies ones that are green or deep blue. The disgusting effect will delight your guests.
