Step aside, store-bought hummus. This homemade bean spread goes above and beyond with crumbled prosciutto folded in (and sprinkled on top).

Chicken Meatballs in Port-Fig Sauce

Simmer chicken meatballs in a rich, fruity sauce for a party appetizer that will disappear in a flash. Prefer to serve without toothpicks? Stack each meatball on top of a slice of crostini.

Papusas with Curtido

Classic Soft Pretzels

An egg wash gives our doughy pretzels the perfect crispy exterior. Dunk in cheese sauce or mustard for a snack that's better than the ballpark version.

Italian Parmesan Pretzels

Better Homes and Gardens

Prefer the sweet soft pretzels at the mall or airport? Swap the Parmesan, Italian seasoning and garlic for cinnamon and sugar.

Stuffed Artichokes

Family Circle

Don't be intimidated by artichokes. After just a few minutes of prep time and a stay in the slow cooker, they become incredibly tender and flavorful.

Light and Layered Taco Dip

Midwest Living

Lightened-up ingredients and a confetti of crisp, colorful vegetables make this potluck-friendly appetizer more nutritious than a typical layered dip but every bit as tasty.
