Jennifer Garner just doesn’t have time to dress up for Halloween, recite Macbeth, and make salsa from scratch, so she put her multitasking mom skills to work on Wednesday with a wickedly hilarious Instagram video. In the clip, Jennifer giggles her way through a pretty impressive reading of the “Song of the Witches” from the classic Shakespeare play while also putting together a bowl of her tomatillo salsa; from her Maleficent-inspired witch makeup to her spooky storytelling voice, it’s enough to make you want to show up at her house with your own bag of tortilla chips. Oh, and in case you were strapped for Halloween party snacks, Jennifer included her salsa recipe in her caption, with the last step being, “Cast a spell. Yum.” Watch for yourself now, then check out 50 more reasons to follow Jennifer Garner on Instagram.

Happy Halloween! 🎃 . Tomatillo Salsa 1 almost full gallon size bag of tomatillos (from my garden🤗). 3 cloves of garlic, trimmed but not peeled 2 whole jalapeños (or more if you want more spice) 2 or 3 limes Salt Olive oil 1 or 2 ripe avocados . 1. Preheat oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with tin foil. 2. Remove husks from tomatillos. Rinse and dry. Place on baking sheet. 3. Drizzle and coat with olive oil. 4. Add whole jalapeños and garlic to baking sheet. 5. Bake for about 30 minutes. You want the tomatillos softened, but not bursting. Jalapeños and garlic should be soft, as well. 6. Pull stems off jalapeños. Squeeze garlic from its shell. 7. Transfer everything to blender. Squeeze in lime juice and add a little salt. 8. Blend until smooth (leave the lid off a bit and cover with a towel to let the steam escape). 9. Transfer to bowl and let cool. 10. Refrigerate. 11. Add more salt to taste. Add diced avocado. 12. Cast a spell. Yum.
