Throwing Up Pumpkin

Last year we had a family Halloween party where everyone was asked to bring a side dish to share. This throwing up pumpkin guacamole is the dish my sister-in-law brought, and it completely stole the show!!!

The kids LOVED it, and the adults all got a good laugh! Here is how to make one for your next spooky shin-dig:

Puking Pumpkin Guacamole


  • 1 small pumpkin – we used a pumpkin pie pumpkin that was about 5-6 inches tall.
  • pumpkin carver or knife
  • big platter
  • tortilla chips
  • guacamole – here are a few links to some of our favorite guacamole recipes:

Barfing Pumpkin Directions: 

  1. Cut open the top of your pumpkin and clean out the “guts” on the inside. Discard the guts and place the top back on.
  2. Carve a barfing pumpkin face by making 2 triangle slits for the eyes and a round hole for the mouth.
  3. Place the pumpkin on the serving tray and spread the guacamole from the mouth of the pumpkin, and down the center of the serving tray.
  4. Set tortilla chips on the side, serve and enjoy!
