"Made this for Bible Study. Everyone thought it was so cute. It was completed gone with an empty plate to bring home. I did add 8 ounces of cream cheese, 1/3 cup salsa, 1/3 cup plain yogurt and 1/4 tsp. garlic powder to the recipe."

"Guacamole with lime and cilantro...Yum. And, this is the cutest thing. I am not a fan of scary Halloween stuff, but "cute" I love! My Mom used to serve "Lizard Loaf" at Halloween (meatloaf shaped into a lizard, with a red pepper tongue), and I think this Franken Guac will make a great buddy for our annual Lizard friend."
