Halloween Brain Pâté and Chips

For this year’s potluck at the clinic, I thought it would be a nice change to make a savory dish instead of dessert. First, I chopped up garlic and a quarter of an onion. Then, I sautéed it in butter. In the meantime, I heated up cream cheese, mayonnaise, milk, and cream of mushroom soup. I mashed a can of pinto beans and stirred that into the dairy mix along with some artificial bacon bits. To add color and some smokiness, I chopped up a small can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. The brain, drizzled with more chipotle adobo sauce, was presented with Halloween tortilla chips.


  1. Oh my goodness, it looks so real, saturated with blood! Believe it must be fresh harvest, straight from OR with the operating room basin at the bottom. Well done, Danny. I vote this is the best dish for the Halloween. Believe that the ancient kings would love this dip better than the real monkey’s brain that they had!!

  2. Nice idea! Looks great and I am sure tasted the same…
