Tortilla roll ups Appetizers

1 pkg 7 inch flour tortilla
2 blocks of cream cheese
1/3 cup mayonaise (not miracle whip)
1 tablespoon of milk
Tastefully simple Fiesta Dip seasoning 3-4 tablespoons
small red pepper finely diced
small yellow pepper finely diced
8oz of shredded cheddar cheese

Mix with mixer mayo, cream cheese, milk til creamy. Stir in Fiesta dip to taste..(I usually do 3, and see if it looks seasoned enough. If not add a little more, it is kind of personal preference sort of thing)


Spread cream cheese mixture on to the tortilla, top very lightly with a little of each pepper, then a very light coating of cheese. Roll up, jelly roll style. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and store in fridge. When ready to serve, slice and lay on sides, they are so pretty! and very yummy.

"*** Don't put too much peppers in or it will be hard to roll them up and they fall apart when sliced. You can also change out the fiesta dip for dry ranch dip, add brocoli, shredded carrots, and the red pepper for a different taste.

I rarely do appetizers until we're having company. But there are a couple I really like when we do a themed meal (Chinese or Mexican) for company.

CRAB RANGOON
Source: Gourmet magazine

Filling
½ lb crabmeat, drained and chopped
½ lb cream cheese, room temperature
½ tsp A-1® Steak Sauce
¼ tsp garlic powder

Wrappers
30 won-ton wrappers
1 egg yolk, well beaten
Oil for deep frying*

Combine crabmeat with cream cheese and seasonings in a medium bowl and
blend to a paste. Place heaping teaspoonful on each wonton. Moisten edges of wontons with egg yolk. Gather the four corners of the wontons together at the top and pinch the edges together to seal. Heat oil to 375ºF. Add wontons in batches and fry until golden brown; about 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Serve hot with Chinese mustard and red sauce for dipping.(opt) Yields 30.

[*Note: I don't deep fry them. I either spray with oil & bake at 375 until golden or just put a small amount of oil in the bottom of a pan & turn them to cook. We don't do anything deep-fried so that's not even an option.]

= = = = = = = = = = =

Apple salsa and cinnamon chips

Cinnamon Chips
4 flour tortillas – 7” size
1 Tbl granulated sugar
½ tsp ground cinnamon

Salsa
2 granny smith apples, medium
1 cup strawberries, sliced
1 kiwi, peeled and chopped
1 orange, small
2 Tbl packed brown sugar
2 Tbl apple jelly

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray tortillas with water. Combine sugar & cinnamon; sprinkle over tortillas. Cut tortillas into 8 wedges & place in single layer on pan. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown & crisp. Set on cooling rack. [NOTE: Do not spray both sides of tortilla or you won’t be able to get them off the pan.]

Peel, core & chop apples. Slice strawberries & chop kiwi. Place all in small bowl. Zest and juice orange. Add zest, orange juice, brown sugar & apple jelly to fruit mixture. Mix gently. Spoon into bowl & serve with chips.

I have substituted freely in this recipe with great results. I’ve replaced the apple jelly with orange marmalade, replaced the kiwi with ½ cup raspberries, replaced both kiwi & strawberries with raspberries, skipped the brown sugar & used canned mandarin oranges with OJ & dried orange zest. Tart apples work best.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
This is a dip that I make when the kids have company & serve with tortilla chips. They really like it - well, the name says it all!

Face First Dip

2 pkg cream cheese or neufchatel
1 c sour cream
1 c salsa, medium

Soften cream cheese. Combine with sour cream. Chop salsa with hand blender. Add to cheese mixture. Blend well.

Oh - and I forgot this one!

Low Fat Blooming Onion

1 Vidalia onion or any super-sweet onion ~ 1 lb weight
1 tsp vegetable oil
¼ oz corn flake crumbs
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1/8 tsp seasoned salt
1 egg white
Horseradish Dip (recipe follows)

Preheat oven to 350º. Trim the root end of the onion so it will stand upright. Slice ½ inch from the top of the onion; discard the papery skin. Cut triangular slices to the center of the onion, slicing from the top to within ½ inch of the bottom and working your way around the onion to make several petals. Place the onion in a microwave-safe dish. Drizzle with the oil. Microwave, covered, on High for 1½ to 2 minutes or until the onion is slightly tender and the petals begin to separate. Combine the corn flake crumbs, red pepper and seasoned salt in a bowl and mix well. Beat the egg white in a bowl until foamy. Dip the onion into the egg white, coating the petals completely. Place in a 2-cup round baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with the corn flake mixture. Bake at 350º for 10 to 12 minutes or until brown and crisp. Serve immediately with the Horseradish Dip.

HORSERADISH DIP
½ c nonfat sour cream
2 tsp reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 tsp prepared horseradish
½ clove garlic, finely minced

Combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, horseradish and garlic in a bowl and mix well. May be prepared up to 2 days in advance and stored, covered, in the refrigerator.

Idiot Proof Easy Quesadillas

I figured this was an appetizer,but if you feel it needs to be moved to the main dishes,please do so.

1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend is what we use)
1 12oz can of shredded chicken in water, drained
1 pkg 'garden' cream cheese (it has like onions,chives and green peppers in it.We always find it next to the guacamole in the refrigerated section), at room temp
4-8 tortillas (depending on how many there are of ya)

In a large mixing bowl with your hands,mix the canned chicken,the shredded cheese and the cream cheese together. Spread 1 tbsp each on one half of the tortillas and fold in half so that it forms a half moon shape.Press lightly to make sure it's REALLY close.

Cook for 2-3 minutes on the George Foreman. I'm sure you could do the same in a pan or in the over for like 2-3 min per side to make sure all the cheese is melted and the cream cheese/chicken is heated through.
Once cooked, let cool for 3-4 minutes before slicing into 3-4 pieces with a pizza slicer.

Here's a southern staple. Easy and so good...

Sausage Balls
1 lb bulk breakfast sausage (hot or mild)
2 cups grated sharp cheddar
3 cups Bisquik

Mix all ingredients together (best and only way is by using your hands). Roll into 1 inch balls and bake for 15 min at 350. Best served warm. These can be frozen before or after they're baked.

This one has a strange combination of ingredients but is very tasty:

Strawberry Cheese Pockets
1 10 pkg refrigerated pizza crust dough
1/4 cup strawberry jam
3/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
5 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup pecans, chopped

Unroll pizza dough and cut into 12 equal pieces. Place 1t of jam on each piece of dough. Top with cheese, green onion, bacon and pecans. Brush edges of dough with water and fold over filling sealing edges with a fork. Place pockets on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 12-15 min at 400 or until golden brown. NOTE: I have tried using crescent rolls instead of pizza dough and it turns out just as good.

Rumaki (or Sweet and Sour Water Chestnuts)

This is my absolute favorite appetizer. Whenever I take it to work, I AWLAYS get asked for the recipe. It's so easy, but so delicious. The wrapping is the only thing that's a pain. It does take awhile (of course, I usually quadruple the recipe). It's worth it, though.

1/2 lb. bacon
8 oz. can whole water chestnuts
1 c. light brown sugar
1 c. ketchup

Cut bacon into thirds and wrap one piece around each water chestnut. (If water chestnuts are huge, cut them in half.) Secure the bacon and water chestnuts together with toothpicks. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Do not overcook. Drain fat. Make sauce by combining brown sugar and ketchup, and pour sauce over baked bacon and water chestnuts. Bake an additional 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve hot. Yum! Yum!

Marinated Mushrooms

A friend of mine shared this delicious recipe. I keep them in my fridge all the time and just add more mushrooms to the marinade from time to time. They are so good! I added them to an antipasto tray my group entered in a salad competition at work and guess what. We won first place!

2 lb. mushrooms (do not remove stems)

Simmer 5 minutes in salted water (get water boiling and drop in mushrooms). Marinate at least 24 hours in the following mixture:

1 c. oil
1/4 c. water
3/4 c. cider vinegar
2 T. ketchup
1/4 c. sugar
2 cloves garlic
1/4 t. thyme
1 large onion, sliced
4 bay leaves
1 t. salt (more if desired)
1 t. pepper (more if desired)

Caramel Apple Dip

Caramel Apple Dip

8oz Cream Cheese
2 tbsp brown sugar (not the yellow sugar, I think they call this dark in the US)
1/2 tub of dipping caramel (you find it in the produce section next to the apples)
2 Skor bars
Granny Smith Apples

Mix the sugar into the cream cheese and spread in an 8"x8" pan. Spread caramel on top. Crush up Skor bars and sprinkle over top of caramel.
Serve with sliced green apples. You can dip the apple slices in some water and lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.

This is SO good!! My hubby will do just about anything for a tray of this! I highly recommend a tray just before you tell dh about your latest Sizzix purchase!
