Garlic Lover's Cheeseball
Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

If you like garlic, you will like this cheeseball. Butter makes it slightly creamy, but can be left out to cut calories if you prefer a denser cheeseball. I made this for a Halloween carry in and added green food coloring to make it a goblin cheeseball. The ears are tortilla chips that I painted with green food coloring and the hair is celery leaves.

Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips
Very Good 4.5/5
(50 ratings)

My dip has all the flavor of the original, but it's much easier on the waistline. I prefer to eat this "dip" with a fork or raw vegetables.

Vegetarian Black Bean Cakes with Orange-Basil Salsa
Very Good 4.3/5

These bean cakes are yummy and great for you. Served with the salsa, it makes a very colorful and festive presentation. I serve these with a lite side salad. Plenty of protein and fiber. Even my meat loving hubby loves this meal.

I make this dip every year for New Years (and for myself whenever I have a craving.)

For parties, I double the recipe and spread on a large cookie sheet and top with vegetables.

Southwestern Eggrolls: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Winner
Very Good 4.4/5
(70 ratings)

I love Chili's Southwestern Eggrolls. They have so much tasty stuff in them, but I hate the fact they are deep fried. I added more beans and corn and then put them in the broiler for crunch.
These are great made ahead of time and *frozen for a quick meal or a fun snack for the big game. I make a double batch so I can freeze some for later.
