Here’s a list of easy and delicious appetizers that will make people think that you sweat over the stove for hours!

Cold Spinach and Artichoke Dip – This cold dip has all of the flavors of a traditional hot spinach dip, but without all of the fat and calories! The best part is…your guests won’t know the difference!

Green Chile Cheese Ball – Forget the usual cheese ball recipes – this has 2 different cheeses, fire roasted chiles and toasted pecans. Serve this with your favorite crackers, chips or vegetables.

Mexican Chicken Pinwheels – Puff pastry is the saving grace in this recipe. Store-bought pastry is rolled around seasoned chicken and cheese and baked until brown and bubbling. Make sure to have plenty of these on hand because they go quickly!

Homemade Crab Rangoon – Everyone loves “crab” Rangoon at the local Chinese take-out joint, but wait until you make it yourself. Fresh crab is mixed with cream cheese, spices and scallions then folded into store-bought wonton wrappers. Fry until golden and crispy and serve with duck sauce.

Louisiana BBQ Shrimp – No, this isn’t shrimp with barbeque sauce. Louisiana BBQ shrimp are shrimp simmered in butter, Old Bay seasoning and lemons – oh my! Serve this straight out of the dish with a couple of loaves of crusty bread for dipping.

Fried Tortellini with Marinara Sauce – Store-bought tortellini (try different flavors too) are coated in seasoned breadcrumbs and lightly fried until golden brown and delicious. Serve this with a quick homemade marinara sauce for a quick bite that no one can resist.
