FAQs

Make-Ahead and Storage:

Can this Taco Dip be Made in Advance?

You can make the bottom layer several days in advance. When you are ready to serve it at your party, just spread the guacamole and add the sour cream for a fun Halloween decoration

Making Ahead: Mix the softened cream cheese, salsa, sour cream, and taco seasoning. Spread onto your round serving platter. Cover and refrigerate for up to 5 days. On the day of the get-together, spread guacamole, and pipe the sour cream to make a fun and spooky web

Storing: Guacamole, once exposed to air will oxidize and start to turn brown, so this is not the ideal dip to keep leftovers. You could scrape the guacamole off and store the orange portion covered and in the refrigerator for a few days.

Take out and serve with tortilla chips whenever you want

Freezing: I would not freeze this dip. The salsa and cream cheese mixture will change the texture and not be that appealing

Can I Keep My Homemade Guacamole from Discoloring?

I have heard that you can soak scooped-out avocado flesh in salt water (2 cups of water to 1/4 cup of salt) for about 10 minutes. Take avocado halves out and mash them into your guacamole recipe for guacamole that stays green

How do you make a Spider Web?

It’s easy. Make a target shape with a few circles and a dot in the center. Then, draw a line from the center dot to the outer circle in about 6 different sections

What is good to serve with a Taco Dip?

  • corn chips
  • tortilla chips
  • pretzel chips

Tips and Tricks

  • make sure that you set your cream cheese out to soften well before making this dip. If you have plenty of time, like overnight, then you could microwave the cream cheese to soften it up a bit
  • you do not need fancy piping back for the sour cream, just snip the corner of a baggie and squeeze out the sour cream into lines
  • make the bottom layer ahead of time, and spread it onto a circle platter. Just before your party, add the guacamole and pipe the sour cream
  • don’t worry about making the web – it’s really simple. Just make a bow and arrow target with your sour cream. Make a dot for the center with circles around it. Pull a knife from the center dot outward to the outer circle in 6 different sections to make the web

If you are ready to make this fun food for Halloween, let’s make sure you have what you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • cream cheese – set this out for a couple of hours to soften up before mixing it with the other ingredients
  • salsa – I always use a mild salsa that is not too runny
  • sour cream – This is a party and no time to skimp on the fat. Use original full-fat sour cream
  • taco seasoning – you can use the whole packet if you want to, but I find that it overpowers the dip. I only use about half of the packet
  • guacamole – I used pre-made store bought but if you have a favorite recipe then that’s even better

How do you make a Spider Web Taco Dip?

(the full instructions are in the recipe card found below)

  • Mix 1/2 of the sour cream, cream cheese, salsa, and taco seasoning
  • Spread into a round casserole dish
  • spread enough guacamole over the center taco dip to cover about 3/4 of it
  • pipe a dot of sour cream into the center of the guacamole, and make 3 rings around it going all the way to the edge of the guacamole
  • use a knife to pull from the center dot of sour cream to the edges of the dip – in about 6 sections (like you are slicing a pie)
