A savory mix that’s full of variety and can be enjoyed by the handful. If you need something to munch on while you cook, this will definitely hit the spot.

As far as apps go, you can’t go wrong with jalapeño poppers. Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, with a little bit of heat – these babies deserve a chef’s kiss.

Pop these bad boys in the oven and you’ve got an appetizer everyone will love. Tiny bagels? C’mon, miniatures are objectively adorable and pizza is delicious.
