When your friends take a look at this vibrant appetizer, they'll know they're at a party. There's nothing better than nibbling on one of these comforting snacks while watching fall football. They are cheesy, bacony, and superb.—Elizabeth Bennett, Mill Creek, Washington

"I really enjoyed this recipe. I have pretty much only eaten artichokes in dips before, but serving them this way was really fun."
