The ingredients can vary a little more for this recipe, but here’s what I used. Find the full recipe at the bottom of the page in the recipe card.
For the Guacamole
- Tomato– I like romas because they are pretty flavorful, but any ripe tomato works.
- Onion– If you don’t like a lot of bite, try sweet onions
- Cilantro- This could be left out if you aren’t a cilantro fan, I sometimes substitute dried oregano to give the guacamole a bit more flavor.
For the Decorations
- Blue tortilla chips- Gives Frankenstein’s hair a dark look
- Black olives
- Sour cream
- Red bell pepper
- Carrot shreds
If you are missing something for the decorations, get creative with veggies you have on hand in your own fridge!

What to dip in the guacamole?
The chips for the hair make a great dipper, but you may want to add a few extra items nearby perfect for dipping too.
- Any tortilla chip or corn chip
- Slices of bell pepper– You can slice up the rest of the bell pepper from decorating the guacamole, and add an extra too
- Carrot sticks
- Sugar snap peas
- Pita chips
These are the most common things I would serve with guacamole. There are a few more great dipper ideas on my What To Eat With Hummus article if you need a few more ideas! Dippers that work for hummus will also totally work for guacamole.
Hope you and your family have a fun Halloween, and the Frankenstein Guacamole make it extra fun!
