Avocados and Halloween- Ghoulishly Green

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Halloween and avocados from Mexico are a great combination for parties and get togethers. Tomorrow is Halloween and "Spookamole" recipes are fast and wonderful to serve to adult guests while children go out trick or treating.
At the end of this feature are some free printable Zombie Apocalypse recipe cards for your own favorite Halloween recipes. 
Halloween recipes are available at Avocados from Mexico. My personal favorite is the

Lump Crab Guacamole:
2 avocados from Mexico, halved, pitted, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped white onion
1 Serrano chile, seeded and minced
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, divided
1-1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
8 ounces lump crabmeat
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Lump Crab Guacamole: 
In a medium bowl, coarsely mash avocados. Add onion, chile, 3 tablespoons of the lime juice and 1 teaspoon of the salt; mix well. In a separate bowl, combine crabmeat, lime zest, chives, remaining 2 tablespoons of lime juice and 1/4 teaspoon of salt; toss gently. Mix crab mixture into the guacamole. Serve with tortilla chips. 
I use Alaskan Snow Crab of course, it's fairly inexpensive here, and it's my favorite. While I could weigh it out, generally I just buy a pound of clusters, and whatever doesn't get snacked on while getting it out of the shell winds up in the recipe! Snow crab clusters, like King crab are already cooked. Just thaw and go. 
2 of my favorite things in the world makes for a very rich dip that's just amazing.
