Add mustard, mayonnaise, paprika, salt, and pepper to the yolks, and mix thoroughly.

Sprinkle with paprika, and place a piece of chive to make it look like a pumpkin.

INGREDIENTS
2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
½ cup monterey jack cheese
⅔ cup cheddar cheese
½ cup buffalo sauce
½ cup ranch dressing
2 tubes refrigerated pizza dough
4 ounce block cheddar cheese, cubed
2 tablespoons melted butter

PREPARATION
Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C.
In a bowl, combine chicken, cream cheese, monterey jack, cheddar, buffalo sauce, and ranch.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out one can of pizza dough. Cut out triangles for eyes, and a mouth.
Bake for 12 minutes, or until the pieces are golden brown, slightly risen and cooked through.
Cut the remaining dough into 16 squares, place a cube of cheese on each one, and roll into balls. Place in a ring around the edges of a greased oven-safe skillet or dish.
Fill the middle of the dish with the dip filling. Bake for 35 minutes.
Place the dough face pieces on the dip.
Enjoy!

Layered Dip

1 16-ounce can refried beans
½ cup salsa
½ cup sour cream
1 cup guacamole

Garnish
Lettuce
Tomato
Black olives

PREPARATION
In a bowl, mix the beans and salsa. Spread onto a plate.
Spread guacamole over the beans.
Put the sour cream in a plastic bag. Cut off the end of one corner of the bag, and pipe out a bullseye pattern of sour cream over the guacamole.
Run a toothpick through the sour cream from the center outward, until it looks like a spiderweb.
Garnish with lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and black olives. Serve with tortilla chips.

Start off your night with these devilish appetizers and join me Wednesday to see what other spooky recipes I have up my sleeve.

Of course it being October and all, I had to include a fall staple as part of your superfood diet.

Pumpkin

halloweenisscaryweb

Sure, pumpkins can seem spooky in their Jack-o-lantern state, but don’t be fooled— they’re actually one of the most nutritious fruits out there. Loaded with antioxidants and disease-fighting vitamins, these gourds aren’t just for carving, making them a bonafide  superfood.

Pump Up the Pumpkin—Why They’re Super

Pumpkins’ bright orange color may make them a good substitute for traffic cones, but the real power behind their hue is beta-carotene, a provitamin that is converted to vitamin A in the body. Known for its immune-boosting powers, beta-carotene is essential for eye health and has also been linked to preventing coronary heart disease . But there’s no need to choose fresh to get the benefits of pumpkin.One cup of canned pumpkin has seven grams of fiber and three grams of protein— even more than the fresh stuff— and contains only 80 calories and one gram of fat. Plus, canned pumpkin is packed with vitamins and provides over 50 percent of the daily value of vitamin K, which may reduce the risk for some types of cancer . Still, the real treasure is in the seeds. One ounce (about 140 seeds) is packed with protein, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. Studies suggest pumpkin seeds provide a number of health benefits— such as blocking the enlargement of the prostate gland, lowering the risk of bladder stones, and helping to prevent depression . Plus, they contain high levels of phytosterols, which research suggests can reduce cholesterol and even help prevent some types of cancers . So get scooping!
