   This is one of my favorite appetizers:GUACAMOLE   3 Haas avocados,1 lime,2 Tabs.chopped onion I chop mine small,1/2 teas.salt,or more if needed,2 small Roma tomatoes chopped small.This is the way I like it ,just because I just love avocados and I don't want to mask the flavor.These items can also be added if desired,Jalapenos,green chilies,garlic.cilantro or prepared salsa.Make sure the avocados are ripe,when they are ripe you can tell by gently pressing on it and it will give very slightly.Cut the avocados remove the seed and mash them with a fork,juice of half a lime or more if desired,mix in salt,chopped onion and choppd Roma tomatoes.Serve with tortilla chips.This is wonderful on a turkey sandwich.The guacamole should be eaten a short while after making,because it will turn dark the lime juice will slow this down a bit.

Stuffed jalepenos or banana peppers. I make about 5 dozen at a time.  I have a simple way to do them and you can use mild peppers if you wish.

12 fresh peppers of your choice
1 pkg of queso fresco cheese**
1 pkg of bacon slices

Line a cookie sheet with foil. The non stick type is great.
Cut peppers in half and using spoon, scrape out seeds. Wear gloves while handling the hot ones.
Cut a piece of cheese about 1/4"x1/4"xlength of pepper halves and lay it in each half.
Cut a piece of bacon in half length wise and then cut each piece the length of the pepper halves. Lay it over them.

Fire up the broiler and put the peppers in for about 8-10 min. or until the bacon is crisp. I keep them about 10" below the flame. You can serve them immediately or make ahead and put between layers of waxed paper in a container and refrigerate until needed. Just reheat in the microwave.

**Usually in the Mexican food section of the cooler. Here it is with the lunch meat section. It melts but, does not run all over the place and you can freeze it or use the rest crumbled in salads or on tacos, etc.

This is my favorite ..... (well, one of them)

AMERICAN SANDWICHES
1/2 lb shredded American cheese
1/2 lb bacon fried, drained, crumbled
2 tbls chopped black olives (I used heaping) 
2 tbls finely chopped or shredded onion (I use heaping tbls)
2/3 cuo mayo -- approximate amount.  Use just enough to moisten and hold things together.
1 bag dollar rolls -- those very small  bread rolls cut in half

Mix everything and spread  on each half of roll.  Bake at 350 8 to 10 minutes
until cheese is bubbling and starting to brown.
Flavor improves if you make the spread several hours ahead.

Crabbies.  Get 1 pkg. of English muffins and split in half.  Mix 1 stick magarine, one jar Old English cheese spread, 1 tsp. garlic powder, and 1 can well drained crabmeat.  Mix all together and spread on muffin halves, and cut each half into quarters.  Place on cooky sheet and flash freeze.  Bag up crabbies and place in  freezer.  When ready to serve, place on cooky sheet and broil for 5-10 minutes.  Watch closely so they don't burn.  Crabbies are really tasty.

Hi Susan this sounds real good too.Thank you.I am not a hot pepper eater either,But I bet WA-HA's pepper recipe would work great with mild green chilies,it would be kind of like chili rellanos which is probably one of my top ten favorites.These chilis are not hot at all just a wonderful chili flavor.

My mom called it appetizer and my friend calls it a polish rose. I use Armour
dried beef, cream cheese and green onion. Wash green onions and cut end
off. Take piece of dried beef spread room temp cream cheese on it, put green
onion of it and roll up. CA does not know what dried beef is, so when I go
to MI every year I make sure that I get dried beef and put it in a cooler in
my suitcase. Every year the TSA put a slip in my suitcase saying that they
have opened my suitcase. I also take Michigan wine back with me.
