3tablespoonsof guacamole spice mixwe used Epicure Guacamole Dip Mix
2green stuffed olives
2black kalamata olives
Juice of half a lemon
Cut all avocados in half and remove the pits. Then take a spoon and slide it gently between the skin of the avocado to separate it from the flesh.
Mash the avocados with a fork or blend them in a food processor. Add your guacamole spices along with the juice of half a lemon to your avocado mash and combine well.
Put your guacamole in the center of your plate and mold it into a Grinch's face shape.
Cut your olives in thin strips lengthwise and make the Grinch's mouth using them.
Place the two green olives at the top for the eyes (make sure the red center shows).
Put two slices of black olives for the Grinch's eyebrows and a triangle diced tomato for his nose.
Put the diced cherry tomatoes in the shape of santa’s hat and add tortilla chips for the "pom pom" of the hat and the rim.
Finish your grinch platter by adding crackers or veggies around it.
It’s important to use a guacamole spice as to not change the color of the guacamole mix. If you add tomatoes and onions to your guac mix or even salsa as I’ve seen in some recipes, your Grinch will change colors.If you can’t find a package of guacamole spice mix, try making your own with a mix of sea salt, ground pepper, garlic powder, dried red bell pepper, chilli flakes, onion powder, ground cumin and paprika.
