Graveyard Dip Recipe
(For a 9x13 inch pan)
2 large cans Refried Beans
(I used Rosarita's Spicy Jalapeno)
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
8 corn tortillas
1 C. crushed Goldfish Crackers
1 1/2 C. crushed tortilla chips

Black food coloring
In a large bowl mix the cans of beans with the
taco seasoning. Place in the baking dish.

and cracks as desired. Also cut out a

Stick the thin strips of tortillas upright to
Place the sour cream in a piping bag
with a large tip and pipe ghosts around
the graveyard. Use black food coloring
to create eyes.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Serve with chips.

This is the opposite, with the tortilla
chips as the path and Goldfish as the
groundcover. I liked the way this one looked better.
All the spooks gobbled these right
down and Beaulah was howling for more.
