You can never go wrong with chips and salsa. Never. Thankfully, you can make this restaurant-quality salsa in 5 minutes flat!

With both Monterey Jack and goat cheese, this queso is the perfect gourmet appetizer for your next get-together.
With all of the toppings of nachos, these fries are a perfect shareable appetizer. If you like cheese fries, you’ll love Nacho Fries.

Um…if you make these for your next party, invite me, okay? These fried macaroni balls look like a fun and creative appetizer!
With fresh avocado hiding inside, these egg rolls are delicious. Your guests will love dipping them in cilantro sauce (which is included with the recipe).
These easy meatballs are made from guava paste and barbecue sauce. So yummy!
Everyone loves a good homemade taquito — they’re so much better than store-bought. Enjoy this chicken and black bean version!
These aren’t your momma’s sausage balls. Made with chorizo and a jalapeño baking mix, they have a Mexican twist!
With a flaky crust and a spicy pork filling, these homemade pork empanadas are sure to impress. Serve them with salsa, guacamole, and sour cream.

Avocado…fries? Yes. Don’t knock them until you try them. Crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside = perfection.
