New Year's Eve Appetizers

Are you getting ready to say goodbye to 2011 and hello to 2012?  Me, too.  Do you want some suggestions for appetizers to get your New Year's Eve started?

My two favorite dips...
I like to have at least one dip to serve with tasty crackers or toasted bread slices.  My two favorite dips are spinach and artichoke dip, which is served warm, or caramelized onion dip.  Choose one, or the other...or both.  They are certain to please your guests.

My favorite stuffed mushrooms....
For a spicy version of an old favorite, serve these kicked up stuffed mushrooms.  Stuffed with hot sausage and cheese, these are delicious bites, perfect for any party.  Don't worry about the hot sausage.  There is just enough to add a kick, but not enough to overwhelm.

My newest favorite tasty bite...
These chorizo stuffed dates are served with a flavorful tomato and red pepper sauce.  They are surprisingly addictive and definitely not your run of the mill appetizer.
