These appetizers are simple to make and quick to disappear.

Do you ever draw a blank when it comes to what to make for an appetizer?

This happens to me all the time and since I always seem to be pressed for time, coming up with something that’s quick and easy is at the top of my list.

It’s nice to have a little something for guests (and the chef) to snack on that’s light enough so it won’t fill everyone up before dinner.
In this collection of recipes there are a variety of appetizer ideas with some being a little heavier than others.

They include Mexican Food, garlic bread, and shrimp.

Some have a crunch, some are cheesy, and some go great with tortilla chips.

But they all have one thing in common, they’re quick and easy to make.

Let’s check them out.
