...or Grapeballs or Those Meatball Things You Make! There are a lot of copies of this old favorite out there, and here's my version. It has a few more ingredients than the usual, but they make these tasty tidbits even more incredibly delicious!
I've been playing around with this recipe from Taste of Home Back Yard Grilling and think I've got it right for our taste. This is so good, it can be a meal in itself. It's a little heat intense, but we like it that way. We loved the combination of spices. Hope you try it.
I changed the original recipe by adding sour cream and more cheeses because I like it creamy. If you like spice, add your favourite hot sauce to taste. Take this to a party, and guaranteed you will be asked for the recipe!
Hey you Paula Deen fans, she has a new magazine, "Cooking with Paula Deen"--this recipe is from the premier issue. It was so yummy looking, I couldn't wait to try it. I added another 15 minutes to the cooking time suggested (30-35 minutes) and It was just right, but oven temperatures vary, so check on it during the last few minutes of cooking time. I'm also going to add a few dashes of cayenne pepper next time for something hot and sweet!
My daughter got this recipe from her friends mom . The small pretzels work the best. And for some reason , the oil definitely makes a difference! We've made them with Crisco, and we've made them with other brands, and they don't taste the same!
*** seems to be too hot for a few people , PLEASE ADJUST the cayenne pepper if you don't like HOT***
My hubby found this in a copy of Southern Living at work. These are super easy and great tasting little appetizers. If you want, you can use reduced-sodium bacon and lite soy sauce to cut back on the sodium. I don't think they need any dipping sauce as the marinade provides a tangy/sour/sweet flavor. Cooking time includes marinade time.
This is a fantastic dip for chips and also makes a wicked sauce for enchiladas! Serve this for your next get together, everyone will LOVE this I promise! Even better, you can use the Mexican blend of Velveeta cheese for this if desired. Use a good-quality mild cheddar cheese such a Cracker Barrel or Black Diamond brand. Adjust the hot sauce to taste. The dip will thicken as it cools, it is best served from a small crockpot to keep warm you could even cook the complete recipe in the crockpot! Since the store-bought canned chili has very little added ground beef, you could always add in more cooked ground beef is desired!
This is an adopted recipe that I have adjusted to include exact amounts for the ingredients. I used a pint of Canned Basic Salsa (Recipe #39094) when I prepared it and found that while it was flavorful, it wasn't spicy at all. You may want to add hot sauce, cayenne pepper or diced jalapenos if you like things kicked up a notch. I also melted my cheese in the microwave and stirred in the other ingredients before pouring into a mini crockpot for serving. You will want to keep an eye on it, if you serve it this way. The cheese can separate if it gets too hot in the crockpot.
This dip is so easy to make and everyone loves it! At every potluck, if I don't bring it, my invitation is immediately revoked! A good friend made this one night for a 'girl's night' at her house. I adjusted the ingredients a bit, and the rest is history. I like to make this the night before so the flavors have a chance to develop. The dip is thick and will break your chips, so it's best spooned onto a plate to enjoy!
Just wanting an appetizer and I had these lovely Jalapenos SOooo put on my thinking cap looked in the freezer and came up with this recipe - looks attractive and it really isn't all that spicy, the baking seems to take some of the heat out of the Jalapenos. These may be made ahead but wait to put the crumbs on top until just before baking. Artificial crab works well too. Some like to steam the jalapenos for 5 minutes first but I like to have a little crunch to them.
I got this Buffalo chicken dip recipe from a respiratory therapist at the hospital where I work. He brought it to a party and everyone asked for the recipe. I appreciate all the reviews that have been written about this recipe since I posted it so long ago. I see more and more that people are making it with freshly cooked chicken - great idea. I also like the idea of using rotisserie chicken. The original recipe used canned chicken for convenience, but I agree with all of you that the fresher meat tastes better. Barb
P.S. Thank you to everyone who has reviewed this recipe. I love it, too, and it makes me feel so good that so many of you have enjoyed it. Thanks again.
