Halloween "spider" Dip

READY IN: 30mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • In a medium bowl mix the refried beans and about 1/3 cup of the salsa together.
  • Pour into an 8 or 9" round glass baking dish and spread.
  • Spread green chilies if using.
  • Layer on sliced olives if using.
  • Cover with remaining salsa.
  • Cover with shredded cheese.
  • Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 20 min or until heated through -- OR -- microwave on high with vented plastic wrap for about 5 minutes.
  • While the dip is cooking make the "spiders".
  • Using a toothpick poke 3 holes on opposite sides of each whole olive. (Yes I know spiders have 8 legs, not 6, but I ran out of room). Cut individual leaves off the rosemary and stick one into each hole. Then slip a raisin most of the way into the olive leaving out a small "head".
  • Let the dip sit for a few minutes after removing from the oven/microwave.
  • Spoon the sour cream into a sandwich bag and clip off the corner of the bag (make it small). Start by putting a dot of sour cream in the center of your dip, then make lines starting from the center to the edge. Make 8 lines in total (like you would cut a pie). Then, starting near the center, connect the lines creating the "web". When complete scatter your "spiders" on the web.
  • Enjoy!
