Snack/Party Food Recipes

Log in to see fewer ads
With the holidays just around the corner, I thought I would start a recipe thread. What's your favorite snack food when you have people over? Here in the South, when invited to a party, people often offer to bring something along. What do you bring?

Lately, we have been taking spicy hummus. Commercially prepared hummus is expensive, and we found a 14 ounce jar of roasted tahini at Costco for a very reasonable price. So, here's the recipe:

4 garlic cloves, minced and then mashed
2 15-oz cans of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed
2/3 cup of tahini (roasted, not raw)
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (lemon juice may be substituted)
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed hot pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon of salt

Pita breads, toasted and cut into wedges for dipping

Add garbanzos, garlic, tahini, lime juice, and olive oil into a food processor or blender and set for 'high' or 'frappe'. The processor will be under load at first. After it has coarsly chopped the garbanzos, add the water and run it until the mixture has a grainy texture. Add the pepper, cumin, chili powder, and salt. Run the processer until the mixture is smooth. Taste and adjust salt if necessary. Refrigerate.

Cut pitas into triangles and toast until crispy.

Spoon the hummus into a dipping bowl. Place bowl in the center of a platter and arrange the toasted pita chips around the bowl. Serve and enjoy!

Button mushroom caps filled with spicy pork sausage, colby jack cheese, and bread crumbs. Cook in oven for 20 minutes at 300 degrees. That is some good stuff.

Bean Dip

1/4 cup chopped pepper. I like jalapeno.
1/4 cup chopped onion.
1 t red wine vinegar
1 t garlic powder or a clove of garlic
Splash of Tabasco sauce
1/2 t chili powder
2 C of refried beans. Canned or homemade.

Mix all ingredients in a blender. I use a little $15 food chopper. I've never made it with canned beans.

The recipe is just a guideline. But it is very good. I eat LOTS of dried pintos, so I just mash and fry those in a little bacon grease or olive oil, then I thin out the bean dip with some of the bean broth. Tajin Mexican seasoning works well in this recipe instead of the chili powder. You can get that anywhere.
Eat this on chips.

Here's the proper way to make beans: Wash and sort a pound of pintos, then simmer them in 6 cups of water. When they are done about 3 hours later add salt. That's it. You don't soak them or add other rubbish. Beans are good eatin' all by themselves. Unless you want bean dip. Or refrieds. Or something else made of beans.

Very true. Back when I was a kid working on the farm, there were many a meal that consisted of pork belly, pinto beans, and corn bread.

Keep, 'em coming, guys and gals!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

The amounts vary on taste and how many you're feeding.

2 big cans of canned chicken/ 1 Rotisserie chicken warmed in deep pan
Ranch dressing to taste ~ 1/3 cup
Frank's Red Hot to taste ~ 1/2 cup
1 block of cream cheese
Shredded cheese to taste and desired consistency

This is a hit everywhere we go.
