Well I was going to move on from Halloween but it's soooo much fun.
and I have soooo many Halloween recipes.

1package (16 ounces) processed cheese
2cans (15 ounces each) black beans, well drained
1cup medium or hot salsa
1can (4 ounces) diced jalapen├Á peppers, drained (optional)
2loaves (18 ounces each) round marble rye bread, unsliced
Pretzel rods
Cocktail rye or pumpernickel bread slices

1.Melt cheese in medium saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in beans, salsa and jalape├▒o peppers, if desired. Carefully cut center out of bread, leaving 1-1/2-inch shell. Cut bread center into pieces for dipping.

2.Reserve 1 pretzel rod. Arrange remaining pretzel rods on serving plate to resemble campfire logs. Place bread cauldron on pretzels; fill with cheese dip, allowing some to spill over top of bread cauldron. Arrange bread pieces and cocktail bread around cauldron. Place reserved pretzel rod in cheese dip; serve immediately.

Tip: Use your favorite Halloween cookie cutters to cut scary shapes from the cocktail bread.
