When my daughter and her husband come to visit over the holidays, we enjoy nibbling on these mouthwatering meatballs while playing games. Water chestnuts add a bit of crunch.—Christine Martin, Durham, North Carolina
“This zesty dip is great for any get-together and allows me to spend more time with my guests,” says Sally Hull of Homestead, Florida. “I always have requests to bring it when my husband and I attend parties.”
To increase this hearty dip's zip, use another can of chilies and Mexican-style stewed tomatoes and processed cheese. You could also keep it warm in a slow cooker or fondue pot. It's tasty served over a baked potato, too.

This billiard-inspired appetizer with chipped beef and three kinds of cheese can be served alongside clever breadstick "cues," as well as crackers and vegetable dippers. Make ahead of time to blend the flavors. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
“I came up with this savory snack when my family needed a quick lunch before running off in several directions,” writes Barbara Moore from Farmington, New Mexico. “I threw together what I had in the fridge and it was a big hit!”
