  • 3 avocados halved and pitted
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 8 ounces chive and onion cream cheese spread softened
  • 1/2 cup Roasted Tomatillo Salsa or prepared salsa verde from a jar
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions about 2
  • 3 large carrots cut into 2- to 3-inch long sticks
  • Blue corn tortilla chips
  • Gherkins or small dill pickles
  • Red bell pepper
  • Olives
  • Pineapple


Make the Dip:

  1. Scoop avocado flesh into a bowl. Add lime juice and salt and mash together until smooth. Stir in cream cheese spread, Roasted Tomatillo Salsa or salsa verde, and scallions. Cover and refrigerate until dip is firm enough to shape, at least 2 hours.

Shape the face:

  1. We created a mold out of aluminum foil, filled it with dip, and inverted it onto a rectangular serving platter. Then we refined and cleaned up the edges. If your dip is firmer, you may not need the mold. Make sure to leave room at the top for the hair and hat, e.g. place the dip off-center and more towards the bottom of the platter.

For the eyes:

  1. Cut 2 slices of red bell pepper into rectangles, then round off the corners so you end up with almond shapes. Cut circles out of the middle of each and stuff with black olive slices.

For the eyebrows:

  1. Thin 2 of the carrot sticks.

For the nose:

  1. Use the bumpiest gherkin in your jar. To create a wart, snip off the end of another gherkin and attach it to the "nose" with a dab of dip.

For the mouth:

  1. You can simply use a single strip of red bell pepper. Or, you can create a mouth and teeth with red bell pepper strips and trimmed pineapple chunks.

For the mole:

  1. Snip off another end of a gherkin.

For the hair:

  1. Arrange carrot sticks across the top and halfway down the sides of the face.

For the hat:

  1. Arrange blue corn tortilla chips over carrots.
