Today’s post about easy and delicious party food is brought to you by Pacific Foods.
Having dinner with friends is one of my favorite things to do and we never even need a real reason to do it, beside the fact that it’s fun to get together. I recently hosted a ‘small bites’ party on a Thursday evening – oh how I love summer evenings! One of the things I loved about it – how super easy it was to put together. Not to mention how fun it is to eat a plate full of so many different things. You can try Pacific Foods new products yourself – enter the giveaway at the end of this post!
3 Easy Entertaining Recipes:
Easy Queso Bean Dip: Spread Pacific Refried Black Beans in the bottom of a small baking dish, add a layer of Pacific Salsa con Queso. Bake about 15 minutes until hot and bubbly. Remove from the oven and top with chopped green onion, cilantro and pickled jalapeños. Serve immediately with your favorite tortilla chips.
Greek Hummus Stacks: Top sliced cucumbers with a layer of Pacific Roasted Garlic Hummus, layer on thinly sliced tomato, chopped Kalamata olives and crumbled feta cheese. Chill until serving.
Tortilla Pinwheels: Spread flour tortillas with your choice of Pacific Hummus (original, roasted garlic or roasted red pepper), add thinly sliced deli turkey, thinly sliced cucumber and spinach or spring mix lettuce. Roll up and slice into 1″ thick slices. You may need to secure these with toothpicks to keep them together. Chill until serving.
Pacific Foods packages their all natural Salsa con Queso, organic Refried Beans and Hummus in cartons that are shelf stable and easy to have on hand in the pantry for last minute appetizers. The three that I prepared for that evening took about 30 minutes all together. Look for Pacific Food products at your local grocer or Whole Foods – the Refried Beans can be found near the canned beans or ethnic foods, the Salsa con Queso near the chips and jarred salsas and the Hummus in the deli section or with other Pacific Foods products.
