I want to make just appetizer type things for new years eve tonight... What are some good/easy/tasty finger foods??

I am thinking celery with cream cheese would be fine, or even jalepeno with cream cheese, but what about hot items? Any good hot dip recipes? or other tasty items? I'm also looking because I'll need these type of items for the superbowl as well so thanks in advance!! :)

I'm making potato skins. I use the really small potatoes (forget what they're called), olive oil instead of vegetable, and no paprika.

I haven't tried freezing it, but it should be ok, right? I'm limited on how often I can eat potatoes, so it has gone to waste sometimes. <_< (Don't know why I didn't try freezing it, but you know how it is....."oh I'll use this in the next few days......" Uh huh :rolleyes: ) I have used it to make mashed potatoes, back when I could eat it more often. I'm afraid potatoes will eventually have to be eliminated, though :( . Thinking about giving it to DD to use in shepherd's pie.

If you want something completely chemical-laden but yummy do the infamous Rotel/velveeta dip.

A block of velveeta, 2cans of Rotel. Melt it in a crock pot. Some people add browned ground beef.

Serve with corn chips or Fritos.

So bad but so good. Junk food deluxe.

We love this!

Jalapeno Popper Spread
8 oz cream cheese (can use non-fat)
4 oz can chopped green chiles
4 oz can chipotles in Adobo
cup sour cream (can be light)
cup shredded parmesan cheese

1. Cut open the Chipoltes & remove seeds. Then blend the chipotles & adobo sauce in a food processor. (or chop the pepper really small )
2. Mix them all together in an oven safe bowl leaving half the Parm for a topping. Wipe sides of bowl or it just burns.
3. Top with the cup of parm
4. Bake at 400 F for 30 minutes or microwave for 5-10 minutes

We use the 7.5 oz can of San Marcos chipotles. We process them and use about . This is very spicy with that much peppers.

Irish Latkes! Add some egg & maybe a small amount of all purpose gluten-free flour. Make into little patties & fry. Yum! Could then melt cheese on top. Add a little onion to the potatoes.

Might be too late for you tonight, but we really like roasted chickpeas. Super healthy and easy. http://allrecipes.co...sted-chickpeas/

Also made the artichoke and spinach dip from the Spunky Coconut for Christmas, served with some gluten free crackers to dip.

Since you mentioned Super Bowl here is my fav and it is so easy:

2 bricks of cream cheese
1-2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup of salsa

Spread cream cheese on bottom of shallow bowl or serving dish (has to have a lip)
spoon salsa over cream cheese
cover with cheddar cheese

Microwave until cheese is melted.

Serve with corn tortilla chips (we like Tostitos Scoops).

Sounds dull but it isn't and I always get asked for the recipe.

It is good eh? I should have figured that you had that one. My friend also makes it with a can of chili on top but then you need to bake it or the beans explode in the microwave. :lol:
