Creamy Avocado-Ranch Dip

Rating: 4.5 stars 80
I haven't seen a recipe combining avocados with cream cheese and sour cream, so I made one! Came up with this creamy blend of cream cheese, sour cream, and avocado seasoned with ranch dressing mix, hot sauce, etc. Excellent with tortilla chips. Add more hot sauce, if you like (I don't add lemon juice because the sour cream already gives it tartness). We couldn't stop eating it!

Drain some low-fat yogurt overnight to make this yummy cucumber dressing. This is a delicious topping for grilled chicken or meat. It's also a great dip for veggies and pita chips.

This will definitely be the biggest hit at the party! This is such an easy appetizer to make and it tastes just like the jalapeno poppers you wish you could make yourself! The hardest part of this recipe is not eating it all by yourself! Serve with sliced sourdough baguettes, tortilla chips or crackers.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Rating: 5 stars 3141
A delicious and easy appetizer. The balsamic vinegar gives it a little bite. Dried basil can be substituted but it is best with fresh.

Caprese on a Stick

Rating: 4.5 stars 225
This is a great, easy finger appetizer. I came up with it because I love Caprese but it was difficult to serve at large parties. Putting the same ingredients on a toothpick yielded great results.

Bacon-wrapped, cheesy jalapeño poppers are grilled for an easy party snack.

Pesto Tomatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars 76
A friend of mine makes these for me all the time and they are scrumptious! Make these ahead of time, and pop into the oven 15 minutes before guests arrive. The aroma will make their mouths water.

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

Rating: 4.5 stars 3081
Serve this cheesy flavorful dip warm with toasted bread or tortilla chips.

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Rating: 4.5 stars 415
This hot crab dip recipe is a huge hit with everyone who tries it. It's even better with fresh crabmeat, but canned works fine. I took it to a party and every person wanted the recipe. Serve it with blue corn chips. This one will really wow them.

Dos Queso Dip

Rating: 4 stars 61
This Mexican-inspired cheese dip can be made with any kind of cheese and your favorite salsa. Regular oregano may be used in place of the more strongly-flavored Mexican variety. Serve it warm with tortilla chips.

Rating: 5 stars 125
Using the pressure cooker makes even the freshest eggs easy to peel.
