Happy New Year - Appetizers

Well, here I am eating my words (no pun intended). I said a few posts ago that I don't usually procrastinate and here I go doing just that. I wrote this article last Friday and am just now posting it. Hopefully, you will have time to go out and get the ingredients should you want to make this appetizer for a New Year's Eve party.

I've never been one that goes out to party on New Year's Eve and other than an occasional cocktail, I don't consider myself a drinker. However, I do enjoy making appetizers for dinners and parties.

There's one dish that I make where people always ask for the recipe. It's a simple Mexican Dip. So, if you are hosting or attending a New Year's Eve party, you might want to consider giving this dip a try.

Mexican Dip

2 8-oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
1 C. sour cream
2 T. milk
2 T. chili powder
1 t. garlic salt
shredded lettuce, green pepper, chopped tomatoes, chopped onion, shredded cheddar, colby, and mozerella cheesess.

Mix first 4 ingredients well. Add chili powder and garlic salt. Blend until mixed well. Spread on pizza pan. Layering on top of mixture with lettuce, green pepper, onion and tomatoes. Finally, top with the shredded cheese. Chill until ready to serve. Use Nacho Chips or Doritos to dip.

Hi Carol - Here's my famous rhubarb or apple pie filling - use any piecrust, although homemade is best:
Aunt Jane's Famous Pie
3 cups chopped rhubarb or apples
Mix together:
1 scant cup sugar
1 slightly beaten egg
3 tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. melted butter
Add mix to rhubarb or apples and scatter in piecrust - add a few dabs of butter and the top crust - bake at 350 degrees until bubbly

I'll check over your recipes also! Happy New Year
