Give your friends and family a good laugh and an even better treat with this Frightfully Delicious Pumpkin Guacamole!
I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw this collection of pumpkins who are clearly alcoholics on BuzzFeed, and it totally inspired me to make this fun Halloween appetizer with some delicious California Avocados.
As I was carving my pumpkin and pulling out all the guts and seeds I got to thinking. How delicious would it be to add some roasted and salted pumpkin seeds to some guacamole?!
It’s so fantastic!
The crunch from the seeds is a pleasant surprise and the perfect addition to make it look like this little pumpkin actually threw up his guts… EWW!
My kids seriously LOVED this. They are begging me to make this again for our annual Halloween Party, and of course, I totally will. After all, we’re getting frightfully close to the end of California Avocado season and I want to enjoy as many creamy avocados as possible.
If you haven’t seen my handy tutorial on how to properly freeze avocados, then be sure to check that out so you can keep enjoying California Avocados through the winter months!
For this recipe I simply used store-bought roasted sunflower seeds, but you can follow this easy recipe from Created By Diane to make your own roasted sunflower seeds.
I hope you’re inspired to make your Halloween a little more green and a lot more frightful!

I’ve done the same thing, but with nice saucey spaghetti, although come to think of it Chili would look awesome too!
Between this and the Pizza Cake you are every teenagers “dream Mom next door!” This would MAKE a Halloween party!
This would be such a hit at a Halloween party! I’m raising a glass to hungover pumpkins.

I love the idea of roasted pumpkin seeds to guacamole! I would’ve never thought of it, but I do love me some roasted pumpkin seeds, so it’s got to be good, because who doesn’t love avocados? 🙂
It’s a delicious combination! 🙂 Thanks Kristi!

Ha! I bet that looks awesome! It’s so fun with the guac inside, everyone thinks it’s hilarious PLUS it’s delicious.

I wondered how you were going to introduce the pumpkin. I am pretty possessive of my avocado in my guacamole. I am laughing here. I like what you did.
You crack me up and are so stinking creative!
OMG, that is awesome! I’m going to do this for my Halloween Party next weekend. Thanks for the wonderful idea!
