Me too! I ate a whole bag of those last sunday afternoon. They definitely do not fill you up.


Not filling. Healthy. Do they give you that I've eaten something satisfaction?

Hey, I've got my own. Grape Kabobs. A couple of grapes per toothpick. Has an appy look to it, mostly water, fun to eat, tasty, and non-filling. I gotta remember that one this summer.

Lots of nice ideas folks. Thanks. Not telling you to stop, just saying thanks.

What about stuffed grilled jalapenos? They're not very filling, but are really yummy!

That sounds good, but I will have to learn how to find the mild versions. BTW, what are you stuffing them with?

Someone on here a while back did a thing on bacon wrapped tater tots. Waiting to try it but it sounds easy and delicious.

When you cut them in half the long way, wear gloves and remove ALL the seeds and the white membrane. Doing this removes most of the heat. I don't like anything too hot either and I can eat this with no problem.

We stuff them with raw Italian sausage, top with sliced raw garlic and put on some grated Italian cheese at the end - YUM! Or you can stuff them with cream cheese - flavored or not, wrap in bacon. Lots of different options. I think there are threads here on the different ways people stuff them.

Grapes, Melon and celery on a plate. Then marshmellow fluff blended with cream cheese in the center as a dip.

Line a plate with crackers ... any kind will do just fine.

Sprinkle grated cheddar cheese on each one.

Add a couple drops of hot sauce (any hot sauce is fine) ... I use Tabasco or Tamazula.

Throw in the microwave for 30 seconds.

Voila. Done.

I happen to be snacking on some H-E-B brand Baked Pita Chips (sea salt flavor) with some Athenos Roasted Red Pepper hummus right now. Love that kind of hummus - think I am going to try to make my own soon but none of the recipes seem to agree on the exact ratios of the garlic/tahini/lemon juice (and some call for olive oil), so that scares me a bit as I really am not enough of a hummus eater to be confident in adjusting as I go.

We enjoy serving hummus with some olive oil and smoked paprika sprinkled on top with toasted pita triangles. Yummy & healthy!


Happy Travels!

If appetizers go with a beer or cocktail sometimes a very tasty bite or two does the trick. We like good olives, pickled green beans, or bloody mary tomatoes (Google for recipes) or thinly sliced hard salami rolled up for easy eating. Little cubes of extra sharp cheddar go fast, too.
