  • Sharp Knife
  • Spoon (for gutting out seeds)
  • Baking Tray
  • Cheese Grater


  • 1 large Pumpkin
  • 1 tray of Tortilla Chips (approx 14oz/400g)
  • 2 cups / 200g Cheddar, grated
  • 1 cup Salsa, or as needed
  • 1 cup Guac, or as needed
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream, or as needed


  • 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. Draw on the style of face you want, then carefully carve out. Ensure the mouth is open to allow the guac to pour out.
  • Arrange chips on a tray and evenly top with cheese. Pop in the oven at 180C/350F for 10-15mins or until the cheese is just melted.
  • Pour over salsa, then sour cream and top with guac (making sure it's coming out of the pumpkin's mouth). Enjoy!



a) Homemade Guacamole - Check out my recipe!
b) Decoration - I like to serve with beer bottles surrounding the pumpkin, just to add to the grossness of everything. 
c) Do I have to make nachos? - Nope! You can just do tortilla chips and guac if you fancy. This would even work with something like chilli con carne on tortilla chips!
d) Calories - Based on sharing between 8 people with 1/2 cup sour cream.
