Easy Fiesta Christmas Tree

READY IN: 15mins

This is a cute little appetizer for the holidays! You probably have most, if not all, of the ingredients in your pantry. It's great for any type of get-togethers, picnics, tail-gaters, or pot lucks.I make several of these and set them around the areas where most of the people are.Be sure to serve napkins!!!
