Halloween means a few "spooky dinners" for my kids and this year I actually came up with a new one all on my own!
We have many variations of "nacho soup" in our family, nacho being the magic word to get the kids to eat any Mexican-esque soup, or basically anything with beans of some sort in it, from white bean to black.
For this one I went with a bloody (tomato) base with maggots (rice) and flys and beetles (black beans) stuck under a big spiders web (sour cream with milk to thin for piping on) and a great big spider on top. I cut the spider out myself from tortillas and used Halloween cookie cutters to make additional spooky homemade tortilla chips. Cheese is an important part of any "nacho" soup but since I wanted to see the maggots and bugs and wanted a flat surface for the web, I went with a slice in the middle instead of shredding it on top.
