Season of appetizers coming up.....

One really easy recipe that is a good "go to" recipe when you need something quick, easy and delicious is Pepper Jelly Dip or Spread.

It's a good one to fall back on when you need something for a party, when guests drop by, or when you don't feel like slaving over a long drawn-out recipe.

Here it is:

Pepper jelly dip

1 c. sharp cheddar, finely shredded

1 c. chopped pecans

1/2 c. chopped green onions, green tops included

Enough mayonaisse to hold it all together in a mound.

Mound ingredients together on a platter, spread with red pepper jelly (I like the one pictured, but there are many other varieties either store bought or homemade), and serve with crackers. My husband actually likes it before I put the jelly on top, so I usually need to double the recipe! It's just so, so good!

Um... I could eat this by itself for Thanksgiving. :)

Thanks for a really easy appetizer....and it's made out of ingredients most of us have on hand, well except for maybe the jelly & green onions. LOL ;-) Bo

Yum! I have pepper jelly in my pantry. I'll have to remember this recipe because I'm sure to need an appetizer for a party this holiday season.

I looked at that same pepper jelly yesterday at the grocers. I think your recipe is going to be a Thanksgiving appetizer at my house. It looks delicious!
