1. Mix together cream cheese, taco seasoning and strained salsa. Make sure it’s mixed really well. Feel free to use a hand mixer.

2. Add drops of red food coloring until you get the intended pinkish results.

3. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

4. Trick! Place an avocado in whatever bowl you will be making your brain in. This will give the dip it’s shape. If you don’t want to do this it will be flat or you will have to double the recipe to make enough to fill out the middle.

5. Dome about half the cheese over the avocado.

6. Add the other have to a piping bag. Make one line down the center to divide the hemispheres.

7. On each side use squiggly lines starting at the top and going front to back. Fill in any gaps with more squiggles. (See video.)

8. Add squirts of red food coloring on the outside for additional “blood.”

9. Set up your platter and serve!
