Ghastly Green Ghoul Guts Recipe

Ghastly Green Ghoul Guts Recipe
Just How disgusting does Ghastly Green Ghoul Guts sound? This year at my annual Halloween BOO-ffet I’m serving three kinds of gross and disgusting sandwich fillings in a triple slow cooker. This one is the favorite, and it’s so easy, even the busiest cook can throw it into the slow cooker; there are minimal ingredients, so it requires only about 10 minutes hands-on time with about 10 more minutes to shred the chicken. The finished dish can be served on Sinister Slider Buns (miniature so guests can have several with different fillings), Transylvanian Coffin Buns, or Spiderweb Buns. The dough for all three is made in the automatic bread machine, so it’s really no work for the cook, and all three freeze well so they can be made ahead.


This scary filling is made with frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts; fresh jalapenos, onions, and chopped garlic are mixed in, and a can of green enchilada sauce is poured over. How easy is that? Once the chicken is cooked through, it is shredded and added back into the luscious sauce with sour cream and cheese. Yum! When it isn’t Halloween, this versatile filling is perfect for burritos (or BOO-rritos at Halloween), tacos, enchiladas, tostadas, taco salads – you get the picture. I’ve even layered it with tortilla chips and cheese for a quick casserole.

Another bonus is that the filling can be made ahead and frozen. You can make a double batch, package it in meal-size portions, and keep it in the freezer for when you’re in a hurry.
