Beans for Halloween

Make room on the buffet table at your Halloween party for healthful (and spooky) beans with graveyard-style layered-bean dip. It’s a fun and easy project to encourage kids to enjoy beans. Use canned refried black beans to create layers of beans, guacamole, salsa, and chopped lettuce in single serving plastic cups. Using flat bread or pizza dough, cut out gravestone-shaped dippers with Halloween cookie cutters or a knife. Brush the dough with oil, bake and use an edible pen (find them in the cake decorating section of the grocery store) to write RIP on the dippers after they are baked. This video gives a quick tutorial on creating this fun and nutritious holiday dish.
