I am so happy that Fall is upon us and that I finally get to enjoy all of my favorite things about Fall cooking. One of my favorite combinations for fall eating is cheddar and apples. If you haven’t tried this before, it is the perfect balance of sweet and savory and they all come together in this Cheddar Apple Pie Dip.
Diced on top of this dip is a mixture of red and green apples that have been tossed with brown sugar, cinnamon, and coarsely chopped walnuts. The layer underneath offers a surprise of cheddar cheese mixed with cream cheese and sour cream, cooked until hot and bubbly.
This appetizer can be served with cinnamon pita chips or cinnamon & raisin bagel chips if you lean more towards the sweet or a hearty wheat cracker if you lean more towards the savory. I like to platter these two options together and let my guests choose their favorite for dipping.
Allow this appetizer to set up for ten to fifteen minutes before serving to allow the flavors to merry together and to let the dip set up.
This appetizer is a potluck and tailgate winner that is sure to surprise your guests with this delicious combination of flavors.
If there is one food that I love, it is a delicious fresh salsa. Today I wanted to share with you the world’s most delicious roasted corn salsa that is the perfect dish to take to your next potluck or tailgating event.
The unique flavor in this salsa comes from a unique process of broiling the corn under your oven’s broiler until the corn gets a beautiful brown hue to it, imparting a roasted taste within each bite of your salsa and adding another layer of flavor to this simple dish.
Fresh chopped tomatoes, roasted corn, and parsley are tossed with just a little red wine vinegar, olive oil, hot sauce, salt, and pepper to create this unique and easy appetizer.
Serve this fast & easy dish with your favorite tortilla chip. I guarantee that wherever you bring this dish, it won’t last long!
