"Dem Bones"
Yield - 24 - 26 enchiladas

Ingredients
Sauce
2/3 CUP PEANUT OIL
2 TBSP CHILE POWDER
2 TBSP SPANISH PAPRIKA
1 TBSP CUMIN
½ TSP WHITE PEPPER
½ TSP CAYENNE PEPPER
Stuffing
3 CUPS YELLOW ONIONS (Finely diced)
2 LBS CHEDDAR CHEESE (Shredded)
1 LBS ROASTED ANAHEIM PEPPERS (Chopped)
6 OZ BLACK OLIVES (Chopped)

30 CORN TORTILLAS *

Method
In a shallow bowl mix the sauce ingredients, whip with a whisk or hand blender. Also combine the stuffing ingredients in a stainless steel bowl.
Microwave the wrapped tortillas for 30 to 40 seconds. This will soften them and make them pliable. Dredge a tortilla through the sauce, then place about a ¼ cup of stuffing on top of the sauced tortilla. Roll the tortilla into the traditional enchilada shape. Place the enchilada widthwise and 2 abreast on a parchment lined ½ sized baking sheet. When finished spread any additional sauce on top of the "bones". The tray can be wrapped with film and refrigerated for future use.
When ready to serve, bake uncovered in a 350F oven for 15 minutes. Remove from oven when done and allow to cool to the touch.

Alternate Method
¼ CUP JALAPEÑOS PEPPERS (Chopped fine)
For a spicier stuffing.

Plate Presentation
Use a "Jack-o-Lantern" for a head and arrange the "bones" as ribs on a serving tray.

Chef's Notes:
A great Halloween party treat, that can be eaten with just a paper napkin.
* Additional tortillas are called for since quite often some tortillas are broken or dried out, and are difficult to use.

Trim the tips with the olive fingernails and serve on lettuce. Place the sauce in a finger bowl to allow for dipping or spooning on top of the breasts.

Chef's Notes:
Great Halloween party entree that can be prepared in advance and held warm in the oven.

Yield 12 Eyeballs

Ingredients
6 MEDIUM EGGS (Hard-boiled, cooled, and peeled)
6 OZ WHIPPED CREAM CHEESE
12 GREEN OLIVES STUFFED WITH PIMENTOS
LOT RED FOOD COLORING OR KETCHUP

Method
Half eggs widthwise. Remove yolks (reserve for other dishes), fill the hole with cream cheese, smoothing surface as much as possible. Press an olive into each cream cheese eyeball, pimento up, for an eerie green iris and red pupil. Dip a toothpick into ketchup and draw broken blood vessels in the cream cheese.


Plate Presentation

Kitty Litter Box Cake
Yield - 20 servings

Ingredients
1 BOX SPICE OR GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE MIX
1 BOX WHITE CAKE MIX
2 VANILLA INSTANT PUDDING MIX
1 -12 0Z WHITE SANDWICH COOKIES
LOT GREEN FOOD COLORING
12 OZ TOOTSIE ROLLS
1 NEW KITTY LITTER BOX
1 NEW KITTY LITTER BOX LINER
1 NEW POOPER SCOOPER

Method
Prepare cake mixes and bake according to box directions (any size pan).

Prepare pudding, chill until ready to assemble.

Crumble sandwich cookies in small batches in food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup of crumbs, add a few drops of green food coloring and mix using fork or shake in a jar.

When cakes are cooled to room temp, crumble into a large bowl. Toss with half the remaining cookie crumbs and chilled pudding. You probably won't need all the pudding, mix the cake and "feel" it, you
don't want it soggy, just moist; gently combine.

Line litter box. Put mixture into box. Put half of the unwrapped tootsie rolls in microwave safe dish and heat until softened. Shape ends so they are no longer blunt, curving slightly. Sprinkle the other half of cookie crumbs over top. Scatter green crumbles lightly over top (chlorophyll in cat litter).

Heat 3 or 4 tootsie rolls in microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Spread remaining tootsie rolls over top; take one and heat until pliable, hang over side of litter box, sprinkle with cookie crumbs.

Plate Presentation
Serve with the popper scooper for a gross Halloween dessert.
