Holiday Appetizer Recipe - Artichoke Nachos
The holidays are in full swing and with that comes family gatherings, great food and a whole lot of fun!
Our two-hundred-foot private sledding run is being groomed as I write this which means that my Southern California family is more outside than in…even when the mercury is south of freezing!
Days before Christmas you’ll find our four grandsons engaged in tobaggon races and snowball fights into the wee hours of the morning!
With so much outdoor winter fun, I opt for casual holiday meals that include a variety of finger foods and appetizers served around a roaring living room fire.
These festive menus feature many family holiday favorites like my Mexican tamales, ALWAYS a highlight! For that reason, I have set a South of the Border theme for this holiday entertaining season!
Try Artichoke Nachos served right off the slopes! These are great little protein-powered finger foods. I make in advance, plate and store these in the refrigerator until my hungry pack of grandsons come in to devour them.
I use cooked artichoke leaves instead of tortilla chips, and garnish with refried beans, tomatoes, olives, salsa, and sour cream. Artichoke Nachos are a great addition to any holiday potluck or cocktail party. Be creative and top these tender Ocean Mist Farms artichoke petals with a variety of toppings like crab salad, hummus or even spinach dip. These appetizers will surely become a holiday favorite!
Wishing you and your family the healthiest and happiest holiday season ever!
