Sesame seeds create an attractive coating for this easy cracker spread. Be sure to watch when you’re toasting them; they burn easily. You’ll find rice crackers in the ethnic food aisle. You can use any flavor, but the wasabi ones are very tasty. —Tammie Balon, Boyce, Virginia

"Tried this over the weekend. Although is was so easy to make, the flavors didn't come together as I had hoped. It was just okay for us and the family."
