“I created this appetizer when I had some leftover phyllo dough in the freezer. It’s perfect for a party because it looks elegant but is easy to make. I serve the shrimp with two sauces, so guests can decide if they’re in a sweet or spicy mood!”
—Sonali Ruder, New York, New York
While growing up, a friend's mother would make this fondue when I spent the night. Every time I make it, it brings back fond childhood memories. I love the rich flavor. Happy dipping! —Tracy Lawson, Farr West, Utah
My husband and I are retired, and I like to look for simple, speedy ways to cook. This thick cheesy dip, with the unusual addition of sausage, goes together in a jiffy. Accompanied by crackers or fresh veggies, it's a hearty appetizer for a football party or family gathering.

Serve your clan a big ol’ platter of these fun and crazy-tasty nacho bites as you cheer for your team. You’ll score big with tortilla chips filled with creamy, spicy cheese and beef! —Raine Gottess, Coconut Creek, Florida
This recipe started at school—I'm a teacher, and when a colleague brought Hot Cheese Dip to our regular staff potluck, I immediately gave it an A+.
Cooking, baking and collecting recipe books are among my favorite hobbies. Best of all, though, I enjoy time with my husband and our daughter.
