It doesn’t take a scientist to make great guacamole – not even a Mad Scientist – but it doesn’t hurt to have a great recipe. Here’s a great option for a Halloween Guacamole recipe from Boris Karloff himself!

Recently discovered “in a secret vault in an ancient castle in Transylvania” is the original guacamole recipe of none other than the great Mad Scientist himself, Boris Karloff, and his recipe will be a monstrously wonderful addition to any Halloween party.

Guacamole recipe from Boris Karloff

In case you don’t remember Boris Karloff, he was the English actor (real name William Henry Pratt) who is most well-known for his roles as Frankenstein’s monster in the 1931 film version, and also as the original Mummy from the 1932 film of the same name. He was also the voice of the Grinch in the 1966 animated television version of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Mr. Karloff was not only a great actor, but also a fine English gentleman who liked to cook. Here is his recipe for guacamole (and it’s not spooky at all.)

2 avocados
1 medium tomato, chopped fine
1 small onion, minced
1 tbsp chopped green chiles (canned)
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp sherry
dash of cayenne (optional)
Salt and pepper

Peel and mash avocados.
Add tomato, onion and chiles.
Stir in lemon juice, sherry and seasonings, to taste.
Stir and blend well.

Makes 10-12 appetizer servings.

And there you have it! Now, just serve in a bowl with fresh corn or tortilla chips, and the Halloween party is ON!
