‘If there’s one recipe you need this Halloween it’s the Puking Pumpkin. Cause really, who doesn’t want a pumpkin throwing up guacamole all over Halloween?’

Seen enough? Jump to Recipe

Folks, It’s that time of the year again when we start making extremely questionable recipes in the name of Halloween. The puking pumpkin is no exception to that. It’s kinda beautiful though right? I mean as beautiful as a barfing pumpkin can be.

The puking pumpkin is an absolute must have this Halloween. With how easy it is to make and how spooky it looks you’d be crazy not to try it!

With all jokes and puke aside, the recipe as whole is actually really tasty.

This guacamole is one I’ve been making for yonks. Always a go-to for me when I’ve got guests round, never fails. I mean I don’t usually serve it as a substitute for vomit but close your eyes and it’s all the same right??

The Greatest Guacamole Recipe

This recipe is super fun to play around with. Grab a pumpkin, a couple avocados and you’re well on your way.

An affordable and most importantly delicious centerpiece within your array of Halloween food.

  • 1 Pumpkin
  • 2 Ripe but not bruised Avocados
  • 1/2 Large Red Onion finely diced
  • 8-10 Cherry Tomatoes finely diced
  • Big handful of Fresh Coriander finely diced.
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • 1 Clove of Garlic minced
  • 1 Fresh Red Chilli de-seeded & finely chopped
  • Splash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Tortilla chips to serve
  1. Cut out a small circle at the tip of the Pumpkin, big enough to comfortably fit your hand in. Using a spoon,  scoop out all the center of the Pumpkin. Cut out eyes and a mouth in any style you fancy, preferably resulting in the Pumpkin looking unwell!
  2. De-stone the Avocados and scoop out the center into a bowl. Mush slightly with a fork, ensuring a smooth but still chunky texture. Add the Onion, Tomatoes, Coriander, Lime Juice, Garlic, Salt & Pepper, Olive Oil and Chilli. Mix further until desired texture. Taste for further seasoning.
  3. Place the Pumpkin with the mouth facing the plate and scoop Guac coming out of it, vomit style. Add chips and tuck in!
