Seasonings of the Witch
for Black Magic Month

By Kate Heyhoe

"Bewitched Black Bean Enfrijoladas"
aka: Goat Cheese Enfrijoladas Negras

If you can find the newfangled orange-red tortillas seasoned with sun-dried tomatoes and chiles, they'll make this dish even more colorful. Serve this dish to blood suckers and vegetarians alike.


"Blithe Spirit Pumpkin Flan"
aka: Pumpkin Flan

Pumpkin Flan with Mango-Habanero Whipped Cream Top this dish with chocolate shavings for a whimsically eerie orange-black effect.


"Hellfire 'n Damnation Cocoa/Caffe Diablo" with...
... Mango-Habanero Whipped Cream

This Mango-Habanero Whipped Cream from Nuevo Tex-Mex inspired me to serve it with hot chocolate or with a hot cup of coffee, either one heated with cinnamon sticks and cloves. For a fiery effect, top the drink with a spoonful of warm cognac and set aflame before serving.
