How to Make Three Easy Appetizers and Be a Hit at Any Party


It can be a struggle to decide what appetizers to take to a gathering or what to serve at your own party. The best choices are classic flavors that appeal to a variety of palates. These three options are a snap to make and require minimal ingredients. They are so quick and easy, you might even be tempted to make all three.

Things You'll Need

  • Sausage
  • Jarred jalapeno
  • Mayonnaise
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Green onions
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Black pepper
  • Ground beef
  • Processed American cheese
  • Onion
  • Tomatoes with chilies
  • Chips or bread
  • Prepare smoked sausage and jalapeno in juice marinade. Thinly slice smoked beef or turkey sausage and place in a bowl. Pour a 16-ounce jar of sliced jalapenos, including the juice, over the sausage. Cover and let the mixture marinate overnight, or at least several hours. Serve with toothpicks.

  • Mix an artichoke dip to serve with chips or toasted slices of baguette. Combine 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese. Add chopped green onions. Drain a 16-ounce can of plain artichoke hearts and chop coarsely. Stir well to combine with the other ingredients. Sprinkle the top with pepper. Bake at 350 F until the top is golden. Double the recipe for a larger gathering.

  • Make a cheesy tomato dip to serve hot with tortilla chips. Saute 1 pound of ground beef and drain the fat. Cube a 2-pound box of processed cheese and melt it in a 2-quart saucepan. When it's warm, add a can of seasoned diced tomatoes with chilies. If you are taking this dip to a party, you can keep it hot in a slow cooker.

Tips & Warnings

  • Spinach can be added to the artichoke dip for a twist.
