Halloween Cat Chip Dip

A Tasty Treat For Your Human Family

Next to my cat are "Vampire Bites" They are simply apple slices, with peanut butter between and almonds for fangs. I brushed them with lemon juice to keep them from turning. A creative healthy treat!

Today, I have a different cat to feature.

The cat I am talking about is one that our family looks forward to because it is yummy. And I like that it is easy to make. 

The dip is  based on sour cream, so I can't say that it is all that healthy. But this year, I made small changes to the recipe to make it a little healthier. 

The only problem is that no one will dig in until I take the first bite. They don't want to mess up this cat. But within a little while, only the whiskers were left!

Our party has come and gone this year. Next year, I am going to try an experiment. I am going to use 1/2 Greek yogurt and 1/2 sour cream and want to see if anyone notices. 

Halloween Cat Dip

16 ounces sour cream
1 package taco seasoning
1 cup of chopped mixed spinach and lettuce
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup of Mexican style shredded cheese (I use a mixture of Monterey Jack, cheddar, Queso Quesadilla, & Asadero)

For the cat features:

green pepper
black olives
tomato slice
chives (I actually used new garlic stems from our garden)

Mix sour cream and seasoning until well blended. Spread on bottom of a 9" quiche dish or plate. *

Layer the remaining ingredients. Make cutouts from the green pepper for ears, back of eyes (which I didn't do this time) and nose. Add olives, tomatoes and chives. 

I am sure this is a pretty basic dip recipe. But, this presentation is all out fun. 

* I used a larger platter so I could put the chips around the cat. It was easier serving that way.
